Catching Up

I have been working on a longer post, detailing the events that led to the delivery of our baby boy, but it is taking me forever, considering that I am getting the hang of the new mom thing.
Here are the basics:

Lucas, born at 12:31 a.m. on January 1, 2008.

We are ecstatic and blessed to have been given this healthy, beautiful baby.

I am working on a longer post, detailing how my contractions started and stopped every 2 hours, the fact I went into work the day I delivered, how The Rev. embarassed me in front of my Ob/Gyn in telling her to stall her last examination of me so that he could watch a stuntman jump 200 yards on a dirtbike, or how surprised Lucas looked when he was placed on my chest and we met for the first time. But I will probably publish the account in installments, given that I want everyone to share in the experience of me telling my husband to call someone to keep him entertained, because I'm trying to have a baby, here, and I can't be paying attention to you.

It has been an exhausting, exhilirating three weeks, but we would not trade a minute of it for anything. It feels like he has been a part of our family forever.
