Henry and family

Henry and familyOur new little boy is here. Amanda did a great job and everyone is fine.

He was 5 lb 15 oz. and 18 inches long. He didn’t take his time coming…we got to the hospital at 9:30AM and he appeared at about 10:50…into the arms of the nurse (the midwife didn’t have time to make it.) One interesting thing–he was born in the sac, or “in caul” as midwives say, it is a sign of good luck, not especially for the child but for all those around him, as the folklore goes.

Lots of pictures here:
