Baby Clark is here!


This is Ryan.

After three hours of pretty intense labor, Lisha gave birth to a beautiful boy. We decided to name him Clark Thomas Hansen. Clark because we have liked that name for a while (not because of Clark Kent) and Thomas because that is Lisha's paternal grandmother's maiden name. It just fit.

He was born at 9:25 a.m., Sept. 1. Lisha had a regular delivery -- a feat because we were praying for no C sections! He was 8 lbs., 6 oz. and 20.5 inches long. I guess everyone says he is big, but I'm bigger than him so I don't have a great perspective...

Lish is doing great. I love her so much! She is a wonderful mother and such a WOMAN! She didn't have an epidural, but she did say, "Quit looking at me like that!" as I gazed at her with sympathy and worry. That was really the only outburst. She had one stitch and is doing great. She's pretty tired, though.

We'll post more pics when he is not so ugly. And by ugly, I mean he's blue because his face got pretty bruised comin' out.

Now it's my turn to run the kids around and take care of my beautiful wife. Thank you for all your support, concern and love! We love you, too!
