Hopefully little Nolan’s long life will be as exciting as his entrance to the world! Although Dusti was scheduled to be induced yesterday morning, Nolan decided he was ready about 30 minutes after she went to bed on the night before. After 18 hours of labor, Nolan arrived at 6:44 p.m. on Tuesday, December 18, 2007. He weighed 8 lbs. 5 oz. and was 22 inches long. Mother and baby are well. Timmy and Dusti want you to know how much they appreciate your prayers. They are blessed with a host of friends and family who have loved, supported and encouraged them and they are eternally grateful. Timmy will not have his computer but I (Brad Hughes the proud uncle and “guest blogger”) will pass along your comments.

“Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.” Psalm 127: 3-5
