Three's a charm

Jo Jo will not be posting for a couple of days. She went into labor yesterday morning, so instead of next Thursday, Michael was born by c-section a little after 11am Saturday. He weighed 6lbs, 13oz and was 19in long. His eyes are greyish brown, he has a little dimple on his chin, and he has brown wavy hair. He is our third boy.

Here is a picture of him at just 2 seconds old:

The boys were so gentle with their brother. Yesterday evening the boys wanted to throw a birthday party for their brother, so we got some cupcakes -- but no candles ("because he is 0 years old" as Davey pointed out).

So far Jo Jo seems to be recovering well and is enjoying spending time with her new little guy.



Jo Jo says she'll be back in a few days.
