my nephew connor has arrived! it wasn't a walk in the park, but stacy decided to hang in there and reap the benefit of all those uncomfortable months:
my brother john and sister-in-law stacy welcomed him july 24, 2010 at 12:24am. he weighed 7lbs, 2oz, and was 19 inches long. he was, apparently, somewhat annoyed at being removed so abruptly from his warm and cozy napping place.
we weren't there for connor's first appearance, but we did stop by earlier in the evening.
stacy was beautiful and graceful, despite having a room full of visitors . . . some of whom sported blue, green and red hands, arms and face. (little tip for ya: the magic marker that soap and water cannot remove? foamy hospital hand sanitizer will allow just enough of it to "loosen" that the color can then be transferred directly to white clothing, but not so much that any actual skin-coloring shows on the skin.)
so . . . welcome, connor! good work, john and stacy! can't wait to visit you all again!
