Welcome to the world Harrison!

It is our great pleasure to introdue the newest addition to our family, Harrison William Smith. He was born on February 5 at 6:15pm at University Medical Center in Lubbock, TX. He weighed 8 lbs., 3 oz. and is 20.5 inches long (yes, he is short and stocky like his dad). Mother and baby are both doing wonderfully!

He came a week early! Holly was having some issues with her blood pressure, so the doctor decided to induce. We checked in the hospital on Februrary 4th to get fluids in her (she had been sick and not able to keep food down). They started the induction on the morning of the 5th, broker her water around lunch, she started pushing at 5:45 and 30 minutes later he was born. It was amazing to watch! Holly is an amazing woman!

Keep posted for more!

I just came back to look at the pictures again and noticed if you scroll down and look at the 4D pictures and then look at the new pictures, they look just alike (But why wouldn't it?) Amazing!!!
