Hey everybody,
it's a boy!!!
His name is Israel Lincoln Tsukayama

Yes, big baby!
He was born at 1:40pm. It wasn't a fast nor painless one, but everything went good and smooth. Praise God for that. Thank you all for your prayers and God bless you.

WOO HOO!!!!

The sign in front of your house had everyone DYING of laughter! I'm hoping Fabio put that up and not Elizabeth!!

Elizabeth, Its over! And its just the beginning. What a sweet blessing that you & baby Israel are healthy. I am so eager to hear the birth story. Rest up and sleep as much as you can! We'll all be here to hear the stories when you're recovered.

Israel! You have a huge play date awaiting you with all these blogging buddies as soon as you're up to playing! We can't wait to meet you.

Michelle got my attention.. what's the sign in the yard say??

ChicagoGal78 said...

LOL! Julie, that got my attention as well. I was planning on doing a 'drive-by' on my way home tonight.

Elizabeth Tsukayama said...

Hehe ~ about the sign: I dont know if you know already, but we live in our church's house, formerly the parsonage, right next to the church. Everyone in church knew we were in labor, so Fabio was thinking that if the baby was born by the time church was over, he would put a sign out saying, "It's a boy or girl", but the baby wasnt born yet. So just before church was out, he put up a big sign that said, "NOT YET! :)" We knew everyone would be wondering. ;-)

Congrats you guys. Heather and I loved the sign outside the house as we were leaving church. Let us know if we can do anything for you. Your home has become dominated by the male species.
