Hello everyone! This is Kristen, Sharisa's little sister.
Just wanted to let you all know that
Baby Merrick arrived this morning at 6:23 a.m.
weighing in at 6 pounds 5 ounces
and 18.5 inches tall. (He's a little guy!)
They are keeping Merrick in the NICU for a couple of days due to some slightly under-developed lungs but they say that he is doing awesome and recovering at a really fast rate. Because of this, the only people that are allowed to see him are his parents and grandparents
:( So I have yet to see the little guy in person, but we are hoping for tomorrow or Saturday.

Sharisa and Mom gettin all prepped for the surgery
Here's the little mama this morning at the hospital ... lucky girl- she got to have her hair and make up done and actually look cute in her pictures at the hospital.... an advantage to having a scheduled birth :)
Sharisa is doing really awesome and is recovering well. She'll probably be home from the hospital on Saturday or Sunday. We're still not sure when visitors will be able to see the baby, but we'll keep you updated!
