Rapture and Accomplishments

Thanks, Everyone, for the inquiries and well wishes, and for participating in BabyWatch 2007. I feel like I owe my success to you!

We are proud to present Felix Grayson, born at 8:40 pm, November 8, 2007, weighing in at 8 pounds, 12 ounces:


So, he's here, little Felix, and we're home, and this morning, he let me sleep for 4 straight hours, he had a morning snack, and went back to sleep, so I'm taking advantage of the time to catch up, post some photos, and maybe even take a shower!

I put a load of laundry in this morning, too! I am a Rock Star!

Housekeeping aside, I also spent a solid half hour, lying on my bed, just looking at him. I feel like I should have someone pinch me, because he just can't be real. And yet, he's here, and he's ours, and we're both overwhelmed in twenty different ways, and even the dogs are starting to get attached to him. I'm so in love, I'm totally scattered...

He is adorable. Congratulations to all of you! (Also, Lisa Caldwell says "hi" and also "Oh-my-god-she-had-a-baby-I-am-so-out-of-the-loop!")

Felix is a name with many good auspices. Can't go wrong with something that essentially means "happy".

Yay! We're so happy for you guys and can't wait to meet Felix. I want all the details- especially the ones about Mark worrying :) There really no preparing yourself for the degree of love that you feel for your own child... We still go in and look at Corinne every night while she sleeps and the reality that she's ours still hasn't fully sunk in.

I've been in a moving truck for the better part of a week, but we returned it yesterday and are headed from NYC to Worcester this very night and will stay (off and on) until we move into our new Brooklyn apartment on Dec. 1!
