...was born on Friday February 6th at exactly 9:00pm. He was 6 lbs, 1.5 oz and measured 18.5 inches long. He was healthy and bright and more than either his dad or I could ever imagine.
His labor ended up being a perfect end to a pregnancy full of ups and downs...it was 4.5 hours of some of the most physically intense work of my life.
He is by far the best thing I/we have ever made.
Perhaps the thing I find the most charming are his little hands...my hands.
Mine have been very good to me. They have allowed me to be creative and expressive and I hope his version of my hands serve him just as fully throughout his life.
Here's also a little video I was able to catch of him this afternoon:
