Tristan Dean Forman

After 10 hours of being at the hospital but only an hour of pushing, we met our little guy Tristan Dean today at 2:12 PM.

We're incredibly thankful for the past 6 weeks since our first scare and our extended hospital visit of 4 weeks. In that time our baby boy to grew to a healthy 6 pounds 9 ounces and almost 19 inches long. Its far beyond what we could have asked for being only 35 1/2 weeks.

Life, what an amazing thing it is to behold. Our God is truly one who lets his glory be seen in some of the simple, yet so complex things. How someone could witness something like this and not believe in God is a mystery to me.

I'll try to do my best to load up some more pictures here to the family blog later tonight or tomorrow morning. The battery on the camera is to low to upload to the laptop and the charger is at home. For now the trusty iPhone camera will just have to do.

If things continue to go well, our plan is to be here today tomorrow and head home sometime Wednesday. Visiting hours are anytime in the morning until 9:00 at night. My cell phone number is 214-202-4552. We're in 543 at Dallas Presby. We'd love to see friends tomorrow and Tristan looks forward to meeting you guys. Thank you everyone for all your prayers over the past 5 weeks. It has been an amazing answer to prayer.

From a father who is excited beyond belief and incredibly proud of his bride and new mom.
