Welcome to the World, Nathaniel!

Nathaniel at just hours old--he already looks a little different!

Luckily my fears did not come to pass: my water broke in the hospital Sunday night. Several hours later, on Monday, January 11, 2010, at 5:25 am, we welcomed Nathaniel to our family. He's amazing! He weighed in at 9 pounds, 7 ounces and is 21.5 inches long and is eating like a champ. He's even given me several 4 hour stretches of sleep at night which has been fantastic. Big brother Lucas is over the moon excited about the baby and is doing an awesome job letting us know when he fusses or might want his paci.

As an extra bonus, January 11 is my brother's birthday (30 this year!) and my maternal grandparents' wedding anniversary (it would have been 67 years this year!).

More to come, for sure.
