Introducing... Kyler Kevin Rubesh

We're very pleased to introduce... all the way from Edmond, Oklahoma - and our first child born in the USA - Kyler Kevin Rubesh. Vital stats? Seven pounds, five ounces (3.4 kilos), and 20 1/2 inches (52 cm) long. Following in the example of his brother and sister, Kyler arrived a little early - at 37 weeks. In fact, while we were in the middle of debating his exact arrival date with the our doctor, he just decided that he'd had enough of the womb and wanted to get out and start having fun with his family!

Erin started having mild contractions yesterday afternoon, so we rushed her into the hospital to get looked at. Though the contractions quickly subsided and it didn't look like she was beginning labor, we decided that it would be safer for her to spend the night hooked up to the monitors at the hospital. Sure enough, at around 2:00 AM, Erin's water broke, the doctor was paged, and the race was on! Kyler made his grand entrance at about 4:00 AM, and both he and Erin are doing marvelously.

Thanks for all your prayers through this pregnancy, and continue to pray for Erin as she recovers from her cesarean section.

We are thrilled to know Kyler arrived safely. Enjoy those little grunty sounds...even at 3 a.m. New baby time is so tender! Congratulations to all of you, but especially Erin, who can now begin to heal.

My mom says hi and big congratulations to you all, too!
