Good morning everyone.
Ryan (Angela's husband) here with an update on the situation regarding Angela's (overlong) pregnancy. You all have been a really great support for her through this entire pregnancy and beyond. We knew you would want to know what was going on ASAP. So here's the skinny…
Angela's water broke yesterday at about 4AM. We stalled for half an hour, then called the DR and went to the hospital (Angela tests strepB positive, so she has to go in as soon as her water breaks in order to get the antibiotic). Fortunately for us, she went into labor shortly thereafter. The Boy (still unnamed, but we're working on it) was born at 11:03 AM yesterday. He was 20 inches long and almost 8.5 pounds! When the time came, my girl pushed him out in the span of three contractions! THREE! Remind me never to cross that chick: she's one remarkably tough lady. She did great. So, so, so, so great.
Anyway. The Boy is beautiful. Amazing. Incredible. He's got the roundest little face and absolutely no chin. He is currently breast-feeding strongly, crying like a maniac, and doing all those little-things that make grown people fall so madly in love with babies.
We should be back home from the hospital sometime early tomorrow morning (the StrepB thing keeps the baby, and therefor us, at the hospital for 48 hours minimum). I can't guarantee that Angela will be up to blogging tomorrow, but I'm sure you'll hear from her soon.
Have a fantastic day, and thanks again for all of your good vibes!
