He's Here!

Here's the update on baby: he's here! Last Thursday (the 26th), Alex Kenton Brown arrived swiftly and quite easily. Why it is that I (who am known to be a wimp and who goes in asking for an epidural) always end up with an almost natural birth? So annoying... these fast and furious deliveries. No complaints on the fast part; I could do without the furious. He was born within 5 minutes of receiving the epidural and would have come faster if the staff had been ready. So that's the story for all you who like that kind of trivia. Now OF COURSE... on to the pictures. Oh yes, he was 8 lbs. 2 oz., 2 1/2 wks. early, 20 inches long and just overall, very healthy. Thank God! (There are a few of you who like itsy, bitsy details. If you are female, a close friend, and want more info than is appropriate for a forum such as this, call me).

A huge congratulations to all of you! He's beautiful...he must not have gotten the memo that newborns aren't supposed to be that adorable....

I've been there too - four babies, four epidurals but only two had time to work 'cause two decided to make a very fast entrance! So I feel your "pain!" At least we got to be totally comfy for awhile afterwards right?
