Quickly! A baby!

A quick update in case you didn't get an email from me (some of them got bounced back because the pictures were too big, or the list of addresses was too long and spammy, or something):

Owen Edward (the artist formerly known as Studs) was born on 12/29/06 at 11:16 pm!
He was 8 lbs 7 oz and 21 inches long.
I thought I would never ever make it through the delivery, and yet, I did!

We got home from the hospital this afternoon. I'm too tired to finish the post I've been writing about how this all went down, so that will come sometime later.

oh, how I would love to hold an snuggle him.

well done lisa and brian...forget about the blog and take care of yourselves for a week or so... adjust.

one unsolicited bit of advice....swaddle him up tightly to sleep. it may not work with Owen, but it worked miracles in my house during those first few weeks. also, nap when you can..that may work miracles for you.

enjoy getting to know each other.

Hooray!! Congratulations to you both. I'm so excited to meet him this weekend, hopefully! He is completely adorable. All the happiness in the world to you guys. *hugs*

Congrats on your little wonder, and for picking a name that is original whilst pronouncable. In a local hospital, the first baby of the new year was named Semaj (female) which was her father's name spelled backwards. Where did they get that one? Happy Birthday Owen!
