Welcome, Baby William!

Introducing...

William Julius Jensen. Born on November 16th, 2010 at 2:47 pm. Here's the proud father showing off his first son. He was a big boy weighing in at 8 lbs. 10 oz. and 21 1/2 inches long.

The labor and delivery went really well. I only had to push for a little over 10 minutes and he was out, luckily. Despite what he looks like in most of these pictures, he really is a pleasant baby who doesn't cry much. We just caught him at a bad time.

This is the last picture I got of him before he came out. Definitely the biggest I've been in my 3 pregnancies.

My Mom came the day before I was induced and has saved the day by taking over for me. Joseph gets paternity leave and it is wonderful to have him home as well and he's done so much to help. The girls sure are spoiled, and so am I.

Sophie is completely enamored by her little brother. She thinks he's the best thing since sliced bread and wants to hold him all. day. long. The first night they came to see me at the hospital she did hold him for about a half hour and thought it was pretty neat that he didn't cry the whole time.

Avery thinks William is cool, but she was much more interested in what they had brought me for dinner. We're going to have to keep a close eye on this girl for sure, or she will love him to pieces.

We are now a family of five and so happy about it! (Don't ask me why Sophie's covering her mouth in this picture. I don't know the answer.) We love having William in our family and hope he'll love being in it. What a lucky girl I am! Welcome to the world, Baby Boy! We love you!
