He's Here!

James John-David Allen was born at 6:44 p.m., August 11th. He weighed 7lbs 15 oz and was 20 1/2 inches long - After two long days of having contractions at home we went to the hospital around 11 a.m. on Saturday to find out if we were progressing at all. I was having contractions about every 4 minutes and was going to be really upset if they sent me home again - When the nurse checked me I was in full labor and 4 cm dilated! I cried I was so happy! Soon after I got an epidural and we were on our way. Less than 8 hours later he was born!
Here are his first pics:

Thank you so much for calling and sharing your great news with us! We actually drove through Birmingham last night and thought of you. I wish we could have stopped, but we were already so behind on getting home from TN. God bless you, Jeremy and Michelle, and your preciouse baby boy! He looks so adorable in the pictures. My prayer for you is that you will cherish this very special time in your lives and marvel in the greatness of God. I think when you have a baby, you get a little glimpse of God's love for us. We love you all!
Emily, Mike, Katelyn, Sydney & Chloe Burgess
