He's Here!

Calvin made his grand entrance at 2:52 am this morning. He weighs 7 lbs. 7 oz. and is 19 inches long. I went from a 1 to a 10 in about 2 hours, and only had to push through 3 contractions. He's already proving to be a well-content baby, and Tim and I have to fight each other for cuddle time. I'm loving this. I will try to post some pictures in a day or two. I think he looks like his papa.

And by the way, the inventor of the epidural is my new best friend. Three cheers for modern medicine!

We are so excited for you! That is about the same size Connor was! I won't tell you what the epidural was like for my next two children, but it was wonderful for Connor! Isn't motherhood wonderful!

Oh my gosh we are so excited for you. It sounds like he is perfect and I cant wait to see some pictures. First of all I cannot believe how fast you went and you only had to push 3 times!!!!! Way lucky for your first and I agree with you, who ever invented drugs really should be millionares no billionares. LOVE THEM!!! Anyway we are so happy for you and you both are going to be great parents. Enjoy this time it only happens once.

YEA!! Welcome to motherhood! Every single time you go to that little baby it will be like the excitement of Christmas morning all over again. I think that is what keeps us Moms going even during those 2 am feedings! (and the 10pm, and the midnight, and the 4am, and the 6am....) ENJOY!
