Nathanaël David Finley was born at 9:05 a.m. on February 5, 2008 in Nogent-sur-Marne, France. He weighed 2920 grams (6.4 lbs) for 48 centimeters (19 inches). His features are more like his brother Michaël's but his Mediterranean coloring is more like Samuel. He's got a good pair of cyclist lungs. Like his big brothers, Nathanaël is unique and he is loved.
Karen is doing as well as might be expected. Her blood pressure is high as it was with our first two. Her doctors are working to find the best solution to stablize her. She is not in danger, but 180/110 is never a positive symptom. We deeply appreciate your prayers to the God on whom we depend for every breath and every beat of the heart. Celebrate this new life with us!
Here's a quiz: who said, "Can anything good come out of Nazareth" and where is this reference found? Be the first to leave a comment with the correct answer and you will be a legend in my mind. My next post will be about our new baby's name and why we chose it.
If you look closely at the above pic, you can see Nathanaël's killer sideburns.
America, before you woke this morning, it was already a Super Tuesday!
