Unto us

a child is born!
a [third] son is given!

I beat the widget and went into labor all by my very own self for the first time.
And Dad is thrilled because Babyboy held off until Easter Monday (His reasonable requests regarding the delivery of this baby: that he not have to miss church, sleep, or a meal. What a good wife I am to meet all three!)

I didn't beat Rebekah's world record of 71 minutes, but a 12:10 pm delivery for a 10:00 am check-in to the hospital isn't too shabby, if I do say so myself.

So far his brothers even seem reasonably fond of his 8 lb. 1 oz, 21" self.

And hey, someone change the counter; he's pagan no longer :)

O happy day! So glad that you had the joyous experience of going early--it felt like winning the lottery the time I did. Hope you're feeling as good as possible!!! (And I'll change the counter since you shouldn't be doing any heavy lifting.)

VERY HAPPY FOR YOU! I agree that there is nothing quite so nice as hitting d-day before d-day. Good work. :)

Hey! We're in the double digits now! Shouldn't we get a lapel pin, or something?

Congratulations! Two hours...way to go : )

Congratulations! May God's blessings be heaped on you. Get some well deserved rest.

I'm a little slow on the uptake here, but heartiest congratulations!
