Introducing ... Harvey Robert Bland

We're back to blogging with some great news - Harvey Robert Bland was born Friday, Dec. 28 at 9:04 p.m. He weighed 7 lbs, 13 oz and has the most adorable chubby cheeks and little man face you've ever seen. He looks just like his Daddy!

Melina was a rock star throughout labor and delivery, even though both were tough, and Proud Papa Matthew was super supportive and sweet. I had the amazing honor of being there through it all - yes, even the leg holding, pushing and crowning! It was incredible - more intense than my own deliveries, probably because I saw everything (and I mean everything!) I'm so thankful Melina and Matthew let me stay and be a part of such a special experience.

Little Man Harvey is home now and hopefully eating like a champ. I'll post more pictures soon, but until then, please keep Melina and Harvey in your thoughts and prayers. Many of you know what those first few days home can be like : ) More on Harvey soon ... and Happy New Year's Eve!
