Derrick Baker Beus

Derrick Baker Beus was born at 10:01 am today, February 14th. He weighed 9 pounds, 3.4 ounces (barely beating Megan as heavyweight champion), and was 22 inches long. He and mom are both doing very well. Here are the preliminary pictures before the rest of the family gets here and the photo shoot begins.

Hip, Hip (literally since he was so large), hooray!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A pre-valentine suprise. You look like it was all just a piece of cake: brush your teeth, take a picture, have the baby, send an update. Just another day of miracles.

Stormie said...

Congrats again! How did you manage to look so beautiful in these pictures? He must've popped right out. Jer says that you got the makings of a football player. :) Take care!

Stormie said...

P.S. I realize 'manage' maybe wasn't the right verb to use. For the record, I think you're beautiful all the time. :)

He is so long compared to mine, but I win in weight (if that can be considered winning). How cute and how fun! I wish I could be there to see him in person. Cassidy you look awesome. Have fun and get some sleep!!!

I second Aunt Marcia's comment!

Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations.

I think "strapping" when I see him, kind of like he might eat four dozen eggs soon.
