    Okay, I'm home from the hospital and finally have everything settled around here enough to post again.

    I am proud to announce that as of 4:41 Arizona time, Monday, January 19, 2009, I have a new baby boy, Quinlan. He weighed 9 pounds 6.2 ounces, was 20 1/2 inches long, and is in perfect health. The labor was induced, took about 9 hours from the start of medication, and no caesarean was required (a lot of people ask this, and I'm not sure why. I suppose they think he was a big baby). I opted for an epidural, which I highly recommend, and while sore and easily tired out, I have been feeling quite good and energetic overall since Tuesday.

    Quinn has sandy brown hair, not particularly thick, and big fat chipmunk cheeks. He sleeps a great deal without fussing, and so far doesn't cry unless he specifically wants something. Sometimes, what he's crying for is simply to be held, because he's quite the cuddle-bunny. Fortunately, he has no shortage of people waiting in line to hold him, just as soon as they can pry him out of his daddy's hands. :)

    Thanks. Although truth to tell, in my family, Quinn is kinda runty (not that we aren't going to keep the poor, puny thing, anyway ;) ). His older brother was 10 1/2 pounds, as was I, my older brother was 11, my dad 12, and one of his sisters 13. The only underweight baby I can recall in my family in generations was my oldest brother, who was born premature after my mom fell down a flight of stairs. We prefer to give birth to toddlers who can practically walk out to the car when it's time to go home. :)
