Something to be thankful for (birth announcment)

Our amazing little boy was born on Friday 11/21/14 at 5:25pm.Our surrogate's water broke at 230am after starting an induction at 11pm Thursday night. He took FOREVER to make his debut into this world but he was definitely worth the wait! Hayden was 8 pounds 1.5 oz, and 19 1/4 inches long. Our surrogate ended up having some complications after his birth and spent the night in the ICU. Thankfully she is alright and was also discharged Sunday so she could rest and recover at home. She gave us such an amazing and previous gift words will never be able to thank her enough. I'm completely in love with our little guy!
