Brancyn David Smith

We were scheduled to go in and have our baby delivered today at 6:30AM. Deidra was going to be induced, but Brancyn demanded otherwise. We went in to the hospital at 3:00AM and he was delivered at 5:57 AM.

He is 8.61 lbs and 19.5 inches.

His name is pronounced like the city Branson, Missouri. Everyone keeps asking if he is named after the city, but Liberty is the only one named after a Missouri town. His name is derived from Kade's 4th Great Grand Uncle Branceford. Deidra liked Branceford's nickname Brance, but didn't think that we could name him "Brance" because Brance Smith is too hard to roll off of the tongue.

All of the kids are very excited to have a new little brother. I think Brylee is the most excited to "help" with feeding and holding the baby. She kept getting mad at Deidra this morning when Brancyn wasn't ready to take the bottle.
