I doubt this is news to anyone who reads this blog, but Micah and I were surprised and very glad to welcome Benjamin Eager Wiginton to the world on Wednesday. He was a month early, which made his middle name (a family name) fitting. He was 6 lb 1 oz, and 19 inches. He is very healthy and should be going home with us later today.
I feel like I should have something profoundly moving and theological to say about him along the lines of the the heavenly Father's love for those of us who trust in Christ, who are His adopted children. I'm sure I'll be figuring out more about that in time, but right now I'm just overwhelmed by the joy of being his dad. I've not historically been one to enjoy close contact with babies, so the fact that I have so much love for him and feel so comfortable with him tells a story in itself.
For those of you who like pictures, here are some.
