Elizabeth and I had no idea how much joy this little boy would bring us. We really are experiencing the kindness of God. The verse at the top of our blog reads "The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy." - Psalm 126:3. Well, He has and we are! Enjoy the pics.

Hey Everyone, Thanks for checking on Ben & Elizabeth. They aren't able to get internet at the hospital so this is Emilee Stanley updating on their behalf.
If you haven't heard Braden Micheal Blanton arrived at 2:46 pm. He was 7 lbs 9 oz & 21 inches long. He has a head full of dark hair. And since I'm not biased I'll be the first to say he is ADORABLE!!!
Elizabeth is doing great. She had a super easy (well, easy as they can be) delivery. She's worn out but recovering well. Here are a few pictures from tonight. I'm sure they will post more as soon as they get their connection working. Thanks for caring for them.

Giving Mom a very funny look!
The pregnant girls: Johanna, Meg, me and Amy
Thank you so much to everyone who hosted, helped with and came to our many baby showers! Ben and I have just been overwhelmed by our friends and family's generosity. Braden is already extremely spoiled and he's not even out of the womb yet! However, we're hoping he'll be here any day now! We can hardly wait to see him!
