We welcomed Rhys Athanasius to our home September 27 at 5:05am. He is 6lbs 14oz, 19.5in long, 14in head (takes after mama!) and a great nurser. Labor was fast, 3.5 hours. Mama is doing wonderfully! I feel great! Home birth is wonderful. Just feels so much more relaxed. For your viewing pleasure, my boy.

Rhys is the welsh variant of Reese or Reece, it means passionate. Which the way he moved in the womb is very fitting. Athanasius is a 3rd Century Church father who refuted Arianism. Andrew was very effected by studying his life. You can find more about Athanasius here. His name means immortal.

Congratulation on your beautiful boy! I came across your blog about a year ago just "surfing blogs" and you caught my eye. You have inspired me with your weight loss, your faith and your beautiful family. I found myself keeping up with you and always uplifted after reading your blog.
Thanks so much!
