Baby William

It's been a long long time. As many of you know, we had our 5th child on Aug 4, 2009. His name is William Jibson Southwell.
8lbs. 6oz, and 20" long. There's a full long story to this pregnancy that Kelly can explain later, but long story short... My beautiful wife, after all her months of hard work, was told she had to have a c-section. After surgery, all she wanted was to hold her baby. This background may help explain the story here...
Photos and details are coming but I have to skip town tomorrow so this video will do for now.

I just watched this again, and I just have to ask, how do you say so much in two minutes? Oh, I love it, and I love your sweet baby and I've already said all this, but it's worth saying again. I still wish I could come be with you and do your laundry...bu that's what moms are for. Love you Kelly Belly.

What an amazing video! It brought tears to my eyes. Kelly you look beautiful and your son is so precious! I feel you on wanting to hold the baby right afterwards. I had c-section with both of mine.

One of your friends made a comment how that could make anyone want a baby. I have a 3 month old and after watching that, I want another one!
