Rafi is here!

Rafael Oliver-Campbell (middle name to be decided.. suggestions welcome!) arrived on July 7th, 2009 at 4:18pm! the last few days have been a whirl-wind, and, wow, what a time we've had. We should be home tomorrow so I can write about what happened, but it was a wonderful, wonderful birthing day.. following a few days which were, well, hellish.

We just adore the little guy. He's perfectly healthy and wonderful, weighing in at 7 pounds 3oz, 19 inches... he was 9 days early. We had an AMAING birth when at first it seemed as though we were going to have a birthing story replete with interventions... Can't wait to update!

Getting to know our little Rafi!

One of the most adorable pictures EVER!

Julia came to visit us!
