Porter Leonard Rice

He is here! Our sweet baby boy weighed in at 7 lb 8 oz. He is 20.5 inches long. He made his debut at 6:54 pm on January 5th. We finally decided on a name. Porter (because we like the name) and Leonard (after Tyler's grandpa who is the sweetest man alive).

(the above picture is one that only a mother would love ... but I wanted to post one of him right after he was born)
Here are a few more fun facts:
Porter was born on our 4th anniversary.
He was born at the birthing center in Meridian, and I have very positive things to say about the experience.
Although Lincoln has been hanging out with grandparents since 'Baby Brother's' arrival, when he did see him he was a really good Big Brother. He just kept saying, "He's cute! He's cute!" and copying what Porter would do.

Congratulations to you and Tyler and of course big brother Lincoln.

Two cute boys:) I love the picture of Lincoln holding Porter. Lincoln looks so much older. You look great Katie! I hope you recover quickly.

Awhhh... Cute! And yes, Porter is a CUTE name :) (don't worry, Tyler, very manly). I agree with Trisha, Lincoln looks a lot older. I think it's the hair. Congratulations! Let me know how to handle life with 2 boys when you figure it out!
