Poke poke poke

We have a baby! His name is James William, he was born at 10:00 this morning after an uneventful induction, and he weighs eight pounds and seven ounces. Or at least he did before he spent most of the last nine hours nursing.

The boys were very excited to meet their brother. They even remembered to pat him gently with one finger, just like we make them do when petting animals.

We're so glad to finally meet him!

And now I'm off to sleep!

Um, have I ever commented? Well, if I haven't I guess I'm delurking. What a handsome baby boy. And your blog routinely makes me crack up and re-read things to my husband. All of the food chucking (bigger van and all) and baby poking. It's great. Just great.

Congratulations. It'll be a very Merry (and sleepy) Christmas at your house :)

PS: I was like...Why does that name sound so familiar to me? It's my Dad's name. Haha. Yeah. (I thought for awhile I might be reversing William James in my head. But no. My Dad is James William as well. Jimmy, really.)(Can't blame me, it's late. And I still have a stack of papers to grade. Sigh.)

Um, that last comment was from me, Rima. Not, 'Riam." And the funny thing is when I was reading your comments, I was like, "wow! she has a commenter named "Riam." That's pretty close to MY NAME." Merry Christmas.
