Jason and Rebecca are happy to welcome:
Jonah Aaron Elbert Meslin
Born at 5:16 pm on 5/13/09
9 lbs 11 oz
22 inches long
We are all doing well. I am recovering nicely, Jonah is thriving, and Jason is the most amazing husband and father a girl could ever ask for.
There is so much to say, I don't know where to begin. So much has happened in the past 5 days and every minute is a new adventure.
I am so thankful for my husband who I love more now than I ever could have imagined - he took care of me and Jonah while I recovered - quite a big task. I am also thankful for my mom, dad, sister and best friend, Dana, who came all the way from Michigan to meet Jonah and help take care of our new family. I also want to thank all our friends and family that have visited, called, texted, e-mailed, etc. with well-wishes. We feel so loved!
Here are the photos you all have been waiting for:

Welcome to the world, Jonah!
