Ryder Dawson McCollum

I am so excited to introduce our sweet little boy Ryder Dawson McCollum to the world! He arrived at 11:28 am Feb 23rd, screaming! He was the loudest little baby when he came out I could not believe how loud his scream was! He was born at 6 pounds 7 ounces and 19 inches long, just a teeny perfect package!! I will have to blog all about our c section experience and hospital time but hes only 4 days old and im still recovering and we are exhausted from no sleep, but for now enjoy these pictures of our brief time in the hospital! Thank you all for the well wishes, we are soo in love with this special little guy.
