YAY! I've been anxiously checking the blogs to see him- and he's ADORABLE! He reminds me of Amber's boys in that last picture. Congrats, Rasmussens!!

Congratulation Amanda! He is beautiful! Whenever I hear that the baby was born early in the morning I think, oh the poor mom! Sounds like a long night! You are amazing! Good luck with that cute bundle of joy of yours! Love, Cam

I am one proud aunt! I've been waiting for this day since I started having my own babies. He is one handsome boy and I can't wait to meet him in a few hours! Congrats, you're a grammy once again! Tell Dad congrats too!

MichelleY said...

Congrats Amanda and Brent! Hope everyone is getting some rest. He is so cute - well worth the 14+ hours of labor!

Janet, the other grandma said...

Congratulations Grammy! Don't know what Elliott will call us (me, that is) but I think we'll just go with the flow and see what he comes up with. We think he is quite perfect--can't wait to see him a little more "unfolded." Grandbaby #5 for you--wow!

granny said...

I'm so, so happy for you all. I'm glad he got here safely. Have fun!

Sassy said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Bless her ♥! Sounds kinda like it was pretty rough...all five of mine were c-section...so I totally feel what she's feeling right now. He is beautiful and I love his name. Melis totally said it...you are so creative with your posts!!!! AGAIN CONGRATULATIONS!

Sassy said...

oh.....and love your header

Tricia said...

Oh...so glad to hear that he is here. Thanks for posting the pictures. He is so handsome! Hope Amanda and Brent are doing well after a long night.

The Blacks said...

Thanks for the double letter spelling reminder! Ha! I totally know how to spell it, but I was posting really fast as I was leaving the house and I didn't even look at it for mistakes! Anyway- thanks for the heads up! I editted immediately!!! And I almost said something about copying when I stole your picture, to... Hee hee!

shellene said...

Not fair to outnumber me in grandbabies. If he's half as handsome (beautiful) as his mommie and half as brilliantly smart as his daddy, he'll be one lucky guy! Congratulations to this long awaited baby...he's a keeper for sure!

So I was originally comment number 10 on this post, and it seems to have disappeared! {I could have been too excited about the baby and forgot to hit publish, who knows.} But, congratulations to you all on the arrival of the cutest little boy. That picture of him on your shoulder is to die for. Elliott is even cuter in person and I can't wait to hold him again!
