Introducing...

Sawyer Frank Houston
Born 4/27/11 at 10:13 a.m.
Weighing 7 pounds 9 ounces and measuring 20 inches long. 

We were instantly in love with this sweet little boy.  He is so mellow and just so much fun to cuddle. I am going to post the birth story eventually but right now I am too tired and just don't feel like it yet!  Sawyer is healthy and home with us now although he does have to stay on the Bili Lights for 24 hours because of Jaundice.  Words cannot express how incredibly happy we are!  Thank you to everyone for your love, support and prayers!!

Dear Candi and Skeet, my name is Glenna Hilton. Mari Burgess is my sister's niece by marriage. I can remember Mari telling the story of Avery after her diagnosis when Candi was about 20 weeks pregnant. I heard of your story from Mari while visiting my sister home. I have followed your story ever since and said many prayers for you both. I would like to congradulate you both on the arrival of Sawyer-you have endured enough and time has finally paid off. I will continue to visit your blog and watch all that happens with the arrival of your new son. May God be with you. Sincerely, Glenna Hilton (GSHilto1@charter.net)

Hi,

I think I may have written on your blog before -- I have been following your story for over a year now -- I am so happy for you. I lost my first baby shortly after he was born - I now have three more and am enjoying motherhood! I am grateful that you now get to enjoy this happy side of motherhood too. COngrats - he is beautiful.
