He’s Here!!!

(I’m writing this the night before checking in for our unexpected scheduled c-section, so details will have to wait… sorry!)

At 12:17 pm on Wednesday, September 29, 2010 Chris and I welcomed James Christopher.

James is perfect. (And yes, I wrote that Tuesday night – cause no matter what, he’s perfect to us!)  He weighed in at 8 pounds, 2 ounces and is 21 inches long.

Thanks to Auntie Sarah for filling in the blanks and adding her own commentary at the end…we expect to be at the hospital until Saturday.

More details to come…thanks to all for their love and support.

From Sarah:

Not much to add, other than a quick note that Eileen came through the surgery fine. When I asked her via text how she was doing, she replied, “Pretty good. Numb. :)” She also confirmed James’ perfectness, lest there was any doubt.  We’re all over-the-moon excited for her and Chris, and we’re lining up already to go meet James. (Mom is first, heading out early next week, and I’ll be there a month from tomorrow. Not. Soon. Enough.)

    Fantastic!!! I may have to jump in the car and drive down to Bingo-town if and when James makes a trip north. 😉 Watch out Mom, I may invade your house, haha.

    Words do not describe how happy I am for Eileen and Chris. If there weren’t two more deserving parents, I couldn’t tell you who they are. Sounds like it all went well and Eileen is fine (as fine as can be expected of course)…can’t wait to see more pics!

    OVERJOYED is an understatement. Also talked to Eileen and she sounds fantastic — just a tad still drugged! James is beautiful — was there any doubt — and Tuesday can’t get here fast enough. (Sionna – you’re ALWAYS welcome!!)

    He’s just gorgeous, Eileen. Congratulations!
