He's Here!!

The little Mystery Man himself has joined the world!!

Thanks for hanging in there with me and all my whiney pregnancy posts. :) It's all worth it and he's beautiful, of course. He has light red hair (fulfilling my belief that he'll look like Roy Hobbes from The Natural) - and he's my tinyest baby yet - just 7lbs 9 ounces!

We're all recovering well after a crazy, harried night. I'll spare you the details except to say that the second time we were sent home by triage, DH said "um, no" and checked us into the Holiday Inn 5 minutes away. I had another brief thought about "what if there's no room!" and my empathy for Mary continued. Fortunately there was room, and a hot bath, and not a sheep in sight, but I'll tell you that with each child my respect increases for women who have done this alone. It's scary, scary thing - and of course, the most rewarding thing imaginable!

Here's to babies everywhere!

He is darling. He looks so wise and strong even with his little eyes closed. We can't wait until you are all home. We miss you. Love Grandma Cheri

Congratulations! Take a break and get to know the little guy. In the meantime, I hope the requests for partials and fulls keep coming!
