Congrats Jana and Justin, and welcome Levi Shafer!
Levi Shafer was named after his great-great-grandma Shafer (Justin's great-gma) who is the beloved matriarch of their family and turns 100 years old on March 14th. Levi made her a great-great, and will carry on her name well, I'll bet.
My sister stayed home from work today and they checked into the hospital around 1 p.m. (CST) - 9 p.m. our time. Geoff managed to stay awake "waiting in the waiting room" with us until 1:30 a.m. (Jerusalem time), which was quite impressive for his sleep cycle.
I woke him up when we got news that Levi was here and all were well. We even got to "walk" down the hall with the family and into the room to see my sister and "meet" the little nephew. It is now 4:30 a.m. in Jerusalem so we're going to try to get a little sleep before the sun comes up! So thankful.
