+1

Introducing..

7 pounds. 5 ounces.
19 1/2 inches.



Amy started with irregular contractions yesterday. At about 11:00PM, Amy woke up with strong and consistent contractions. We took our time (mistake), got things ready, and headed out. On the way to the hospital, the contractions picked up and were about 2-3 minutes apart - and we were 40 minutes from the hospital. I made record time, somewhat worried that I might need to pull off the highway. Amy was admitted and in a bed at 1:00 and J was born at 1:30. Welcome to the family, James - I guess that is how we do business.
It all went so quickly. Amy did an incredible job. Both baby and mother are happy and healthy.
Proud (and relieved) father


Big brother is watching




Aunt Ashely has been a great help!!


More later.
Amy, Curt, Ian and James.
