the brachiopod


I need to start working on the birth story before I forget things, but for now you'll have to make do with some photos. A sacrifice, I know ;) He was born at 12:44 PM on Friday weighing 8 lbs 9 1/2 oz and measuring 20.5 inches long.

My favorite photo! Before I got to see the baby for myself, MB brought the camera over and showed me this shot. Check out his red hair!


All wrapped up in the recovery room:


The child has giant feet. None of the socks we brought actually fit!
