Introductions!

Here is our new sweet beautiful baby boy, Harry Joseph S-P. Born 1/23/2014 at 10.11pm via c section.
Weight: 7lb 12 Oz, length 20 inches.
Surgery was longer and rougher than expected and involved the unexpected removal of a grapefruit sized fibroid!
Baby boy is named after my beloved father Harry, and Susan’s brother, Joseph, who she never met and who died a day or so after his birth. Hope that doesn’t sound macabre, but we wanted to honor two men in our lives that had differing but powerful influences on us.

  1. Congratulations! He is gorgeous, and has a wonderful name. Welcome to your new life! There will be hard parts, but there'll be incredibly awesome ones as well. It only get better each day, even though sometimes it may not seem so, but it does. Know that, and do whatever you have to to make it until bed time. πŸ™‚ And do rest whenever you can. But you know that already, don't you? Enjoy your new baby, because the next time you blink, he is going to be a toddler. Looking forward for updates about how you are settling in. All of you.

  2. In all our back and forth, you never mentioned the removal of a fibroid! That's what you were referring to. Well, I am glad it is out and hope your healing goes smoothly.I love his name, its significance, and his significance to your family. Can't wait for him and your daughter to meet πŸ™‚
