And we are thankful…

Hi all–Daddy(of two!) blogging here. I realize there have been quite a few checking for an update today, so I’ll try my best not to mess this up. Please pardon the formatting and let the photos do the talking. I will let you in on one thing: don’t worry about his face coloring; he’s breathing just fine! The little guy just had a rough time coming into the world and got a little bruised up. Baby and Mama are doing fine. She was awesome. Without further ado,

Ephraim McCray Cobb

8 lbs

20 inches
