Baby Boy has Arrived!

Today we are filled with deepest joy, contentment and love for our family. We have a new baby boy, and Jacob has a new baby brother. Stephanie began having contractions early Friday morning and called me in Circle to say it was time to head to Fairbanks. With the intention of having a completely natural birth without any interventions, Stephanie labored the rest of the day, all through the night and until 3 in the afternoon. She did a heroic job of working through the pain of contractions without an epidural or any IV drugs. After dilating fully, she pushed for two hours. The baby descended part way and stopped, exactly where Jacob had stopped the first time. After a third hour of pushing, Stephanie and I went in to the surgery room for the successful delivery of our beautiful boy- who looks strikingly like Jacob on the day he was born.

Stephanie's father and step-mother are here in Fairbanks taking care of Jacob while Stephanie is recovering in the hospital. After Julius leaves, Jan will stay a little longer to help us with the two kids while Stephanie continues to recover at home.

So, with a name that means "the Lord is good," we're proud to introduce Tobias James Rozell, who entered our family Saturday night, August 26 at 6:41PM.
