With much anticipation, James Paxman B. arrived 1:33am Sunday, 9/19/10. He was 7 lbs 4 oz at birth. Behold:
Here he is a few minutes into life.
20 inches of awesomeness.
Extreme closeup! Who does he look like most? Let's get a larger sample size to assess:
With eyes open! I'm predicting brown eyes like his mom.
Sarah Jane's mother Cathy also was born on the 19th of September. Happy birthday Grandma! It should be noted that 4 hours after being requested, Cathy arrived to the hospital from Utah. Impressive. Most impressive. And most helpful.
Some of you may be wondering how the delivery went. It's really not for me to say, but we both agree that things went smoother than last time. But it's really not for me to say.
...And on the other side. Thanks for bringing this baby into the world! Bless the bearers of children.
Father and son.
Not a lot of drama with this kid so far. He didn't really cry upon arrival, and so far he doesn't fuss much. I'm crossing my fingers as I'm typing that he will continue to maintain a mild temperament. At least for a while as we adjust to life with two children. Speaking of which, here's Norah on the big day.
These days James can most often be found in bundle/burrito mode zonked out. But who knows; when we're asleep he might stop his "I'm just sleeping" act and sneak out for a night on the town.
Anyway, welcome to our family, James! We love you and are so glad you're here.
