Blake Meredith has finally blessed us with his presence! Blake was born today at 4:47 pm. Angela and Greg went in at 6:30 am this morning and things progressed nicely throughout the day. All are doing well. Blake is 7 lbs, 8 ounces and 19″ long. And perfect in every way! Both sets of grandparents and Blake’s two aunts, Joni and I, were there all day – wearing holes in the waiting room floor. We were able to go in and see Blake right after he was born. Lots of pictures and passing around the baby. Then, they went through all the cleaning and prepping they have to do. Blake was not pleased with most of that except for washing his hair! He is most content when bundled up in mom or dad’s arms.
For great pictures of this handsome young man, click on the photo album in the left side bar titled “Blake’s Pics”. I will have more pictures of Blake and his family to add to the website tomorrow night.
In the meantime, I praise God for the wonderful and miraculous gift of life and we daily commit Blake to God (beginning before he was even born). Blake is an amazing gift that we will continue to marvel at the rest of our lives.
Peace – Aunt Melissa
