He’s HERE!!!!!!!

We are proud to announce that Bode James finally arrived on July 18th at 12:33 p.m.! Weighing in at 8 pounds 6 ounces, he became known as “The Slug” by the hospital staff because of his size and his refusal to wake up the first few days of his life (juxtaposed against his insomniac sister). We are not disillusioned enough to believe he will maintain this pattern but remain hopeful. He also has his mommy’s lungs and his daddy’s good looks (not to mention his hairline).

For now, we’re alive and well. OK, maybe just alive. Jamie is super sick with bronchitis and an ear infection; I am a sleep-deprived zombie and still recovering from graciously getting Jamie sick. For the time being, big sister Hadley has assumed all parenting responsibilities (though nursing has proven to be a challenge).

We will continue adding pictures and the knock-down, drag-out story of his birth. Just as soon as we get back up!
