Ava Jean is here

July 28, 2007

Ava_jean_is_here_046 I’m sitting in my hospital room feeling like the most blessed man on the planet.  Last night at 6:11pm Ava Jean entered our world at 20 inches long and weighing 7 pounds and one ounce.

Ava_jean_is_here_007 Lot’s of different emotions this morning.  I have friends leaving, friends in physical trouble, and also this huge blessing. 

Life is such a tension between beauty and pain.   Which pretty much describes my wife right now.  She is beautiful, and she is in pain.

Enjoy these pictures of gorgeous little Ava Jean McKenney.
