Our Little Man is Here!!!

Sorry for the very late post, it has been a whirlwind of a week!  But I'm sure you guessed the reason for my lack of posting!  =)

I'll send out a more detailed post with the birth story, lots of photos and some videos after I recover and find some spare time, but here's a very short version for now...

I woke up Tue morning, June 22 @ 6:28a to my water breaking and immediately started having contractions.  33 exhausting hours later, our son entered the world.  He was born on his due date, June 23 at 3:17p.  He weighed 6 lbs 15 oz. and was 19" long.  He has strawberry blonde hair, blue eyes and is oh so little!  He's a total clone of Kerry, no mistaking that the lab used the correct sperm, lol!

Introducing Tyler Isaac Morris:

We are exhausted and running on fumes but are on top of the world.  We are so in love with him!  Sorry this has to be a drive-by post, but details to follow soon, I promise!


  1. He is as perfect as can be! Congratulations to you both! And you are my hero for enduring 33 hours of labor! What a mighty woman you are! Enjoy every sleep deprived moment, and soon enough you will sleep again- I promise! :)

  2. He looks sooo wonderful! Congrats!!

    I like numbers and he is a #7 baby!

    There are 16 letters in his name and 1+6 = 7!!

    What an awesome name! Congrats!

    Welcome to Motherhood - it is an adventure!

  3. He is just precious!! I am so happy for you three, and am sure that you are enjoying every second, through those sleepy eyes and incoherent gazes. :0) Love to you! Anxious for more pics.
    He is amazing. Thank you Lord for Jill & Kerry's gift!!!
    The Other Jill

  4. He's gorgeous! Can't wait to hear more. Great name, too.

  5. Seven, I mean Tyler, is absoutely adorable! Congratulations!!!! And welcome little man!!

  6. What a gorgeous little guy! So thrilled for you guy, I've been checking your blog almost hourly! What a cute name! It suits him. I can't wait to hear more about him, but get some rest first, Mommy!

    Love and Smiles,

  7. Oh Jill, he is so beautiful!!! Congratulations on your precious son! I can't wait for more details. I'm so glad all is well & hope that you and sweet Tyler are adjusting well. Those can be rough times figuring out nursing and all of that those first couple of weeks, but just know that everything will get smoother as you get to know each other better. Enjoy every minute, as much as you can, because you will be SHOCKED at how fast he changes!
    I am sooooooo happy for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. OMG Jill!!!!! I mean Mommmy!!! Congrats!!! I was beginning to wonder about you! He is lovely, I'm just over the moon happy for you 3!
    Can't wait to hear the gory details! And see more pictures!


  9. This is tremendous news! Congratulations to you and Kerry! I am so thrilled and happy for you! Your baby's so adorable and precious, and I love his name too! Don't worry about keeping us updated. We'd love to see the photos but it's no hurry. Just rest, recuperate and enjoy your little bundle of sunshine!

  10. He's very cute! Just think only one ounce away from SEVEN pounds...although the scales aren't always accurate and could have actually been 7:)

    OMG 33 hours....that's the LONGEST labor of anyone I poor thing:(

    Can't wait to get all the details. Like someone else said, enjoy every single second because it goes sooooo fast. I'm so glad you finally got to experience that unconditional love I've always talked to you about.

    Congrats to you and Kerry

  11. Congratulations! He is beautiful. Well done on your marathon labor! I can't wait to hear all about it.
    He really is gorgeous.Enjoy every minute.

  12. Omg Congratulations!!! I've been silently reading your blog and was getting so excited about the delivery, you're the first delivery that I've witnessed the pre-delivery stage since I started reading blogs about pregnancies & IF, so I'm so happy and excited for you both!! :D

    Thank you for taking us with you on your little journey to motherhood and sharing every step :) It really is a wonderful experience to read about and gives us so much hope :)

    Little Tyler Isaac Morris looks adorable!! Lol I think I'd agree with you he looks likes his dad, but keep an eye on him, you'd be surprised how much they change..

    I'm genuinely so happy for you both and wish your family all the happiness, health, and success in the world..

    Enjoy your little precious bundle of joy!

  13. I love seeing new pics of him. And can't wait to see the birthing post with more and videos. You know, after talking with you tonight, I thought to myself that you sounded a little different...and my first thought of reason was that you were tired, and you said you had just woke up at the beginning, but I'm positive that the reason you sounded different to me on the phone tonight verses a few weeks ago is that you are now complete with Tyler Isaac in your arms and in your life. I know I said it already, but I am so proud of you and love you very much. I can't wait to see you and Kerry again and meet my baby cousin for the first time. So wish you could be there at Moms next weekend, but we'll have to see how soon we can get up to TN or you guys to FL for some R&R.

    Love you,

  14. Jill and Kerry,

    He is absolutely perfect! He really is a cute baby, and I'm not just saying that ;-)

    I know he will grow up having so many wonderful adventures with you guys. You will have to change the name of your blog!!

    I'm so happy you are finally holding your beautiful baby boy.



  23. Jill, I know what you went through, because I was there... and I am not going to devulge your story. However, I am going to say how proud I am of you for the way you showed determination and strength to endure so many hours of labor and pushed through the pain.
    The end results was worth it when Tyler arrived unscathed and perfect.
    I also want you and Kerry to know that I am honored that you allowed me to witness this special event. It's hard to find words..but it was AMAZING to say the least.
    Thank you for a beautiful Grandson!!!
    I love you as big as the sky... Mama (Grammy)
