Unto Us a Son is Given

Hobbes kept saying that Christmas Day was the day the baby would come out. We thought he was just confusing the baby Jesus and our baby. Turns out he was right.

After slow contractions from 1 am on and a quick and crazy 1-hour trip from 4 cm to birth, baby boy 3 arrived at 7:22 pm on Christmas Day. He weighed in at 8lb. 4oz, and has a full head of dark hair (completely unlike his blonde brothers). He is sweet and beautiful and seems to be a self-soother (also unlike his brothers).

What a Christmas Day!

Though I will not post pics or a name on this blog in order to keep it anonymous, I am happy to e-mail them to my regular readers. Just let me know.

Now off to rest. And Happy Second Day of Christmas to those of you celebrating!

Rach, I think I would use the words "excrutiatingly painful" rather than "impressive." It was horrible-enough to make me want to go for drugs next time around.

Wow! Congratulations! That sure makes for an exciting Christmas Day.

Blessings on you and your family. What a joy.
