Well, we gave it the ol' college try and attempted to post from the hospital shortly after Ephram's birth. But their wireless wouldn't cooperate. So this is Shelly's mom again, posting from home. 

Ephram entered our world today at 5:48 p.m. after a long day for Shelly. It took quite a while to get things going, then when "things" did get going, the birth came rather quickly. There were a few anxious moments just before Ephram was born. The cord was wrapped tightly around his neck and body. But quick action on the part of the doctor and all was well. He is a little pumpkin and has all his fingers and toes (do pumpkins have fingers and toes? Josh asks). This one does! Ephram weighs 6 lb. 15 oz. and is 18" long. Daddy was there for the whole scene and held Ephram shortly after his birth. Big brother Noah and big sister Zoe came up to visit as well. We took hundreds of pictures of our little wonder, but I'll just post two here for your enjoyment:
