Our New Little One!!!

Hey everyone,
We have a baby!!! He was born November 5th at 12:08 pm. He's 6 pounds 3 ounces and 19 inches long- just a little guy! He has quite a bit of blond hair in the back and little whisps on the sides. He has my nose from when I was a baby and Dustin's chin.
Just a little about my delivery, which was great... I woke up at 3:30 am with contractions (don't like those AT ALL!), came to the hospital at 6:30. I progressed very quickly and only pushed for a half hour. It was all so fast and so amazing. He is so dang cute, not one of those babies that is squished, blue or misshapen when they are born. :)
And his name is..... Ryker Dustin Nielsen. He just looks like a Ryker.
We've had him home for almost a week and he is an angel. He sleeps well at night and is getting big already! We have so much fun with him.

Here are pictures (lots, but more are coming!)

He LOVES daddy!

Well, I have to get back to him. I am having our new internet installed next week so then I will be able to post more. Bye till then!
Ashley, Dustin and Ryker
