Baby boy is here!

Grayson Douglas Reichley was born Thursday, August 13, 2009 at 4:05pm. He weighed 6 lbs and 7 oz, 19 inches long. He's got lots of dark hair and is beautiful and perfect!

Amy's water broke at her parents' house in SC on Thursday morning around 9am. Her and Doug had gotten the okay to travel down for a visit after their Tuesday appointment with the baby Dr. He just said to get out and walk around every two hours, so their trip to visit in SC was a go.

Uncle Don got to drive them to the hospital, he's taken a load of credit for that. Amy did an awesome job and only pushed for 13 minutes after laboring for part of the day. Doug cut the cord and is a very proud Daddy.

Doug's parents drove up from vacationing in FL to meet Grayson when he was just over an hour old. Amy's parents, Great-Grandpap Riedel, Aunt April & Uncle Don all live in SC so were there for the big event too.

I (Aunt Anna) was able to meet Grayson and got to hold him most of Friday morning. (I did let Uncle Todd, Austin, and Luke hold him for just a minute!) He's just wonderful and cute and precious and all the things a baby boy should be. He's a peanut!

Doug, Amy, and Grayson are staying at her parents' house for now. Grayson and Amy left the hospital Saturday evening and Grayson will see a pediatrician on Monday for a check up. Everyone is doing well!

Thank you all for the prayers that were said for Amy and baby Grayson, and for Doug and big brother Dor. Scroll down for pictures.
