Spencer is here!

He's here! Spencer David Bingham finally made his appearance on Monday April 5th at 12:09 pm. He weighed in at 7 lbs 1 oz and measured 19.5 inches (not too shabby for very short parents!) The birth story will have to wait for another post. Suffice it to say that labor was only 6 hours and I managed to have a natural, non-medicated birth -- just what I wanted. It was harder than I ever imagined it would be... but the sense of accomplishment was like nothing else. It would not have been possible without Mom and Cory at my side for the entire 6 hours, so I'm grateful to them for supporting me when I needed it most.

Spencer is happy and healthy, which we're grateful for. I'm healing nicely, which I'm grateful for. This is moving week for us, so we're loading the moving truck on Wednesday and beginning our journey westward. Spencer rides in the car well and seems to like his car seat, which is good, since he's got about 4 days of riding in the very near future.

Blog posts are probably going to be sparse over the next few weeks. In the meantime, here's a couple of pictures. The general consensus seems to be that he looks just like Cory. I think he's pretty darned cute, but I might be a tad biased :)
