On September 5th, 2011 "Labor Day" at 3:57 pm, River Austin Simpson joined our family! He is absolutely perfect at 6 lbs, 12 ounces and 19 1/2 inches long. His soft hair is brown and as far as we can tell he has dark blue eyes. He is very calm and spent his first hour of life on Mom's chest and was able to nurse right away. Dad cut his chord and was able to snuggle with him as well. River hardly cried and was very alert right from birth. It was very peaceful after he was born and we will always cherish how surreal those first precious moments were. He has very long fingers and toes, and the sweetest little face. He seems like a very mellow little guy so far. Shortly after he was able to meet his big sister, and grandparents. Laken just wanted to get a close look at him too! I just love the pictures of there first moments together and think that this was the beginning of their very special relationship as brother and sister so close in age! Welcome to the world precious River, we are so glad that you have come!
