Look who finally decided to grace us with his presence...

It took some coaxing, but Lil' Mathlete was born Thursday, February 12 at 10:52 pm. He weighed 7 lb 9 oz and was 22-inches long. Though, i'm not sure about the whole length thing because at his appointment today he was 19.75-inches. I don't think babies shrink, but what do i know.

Kelly and I absolutely love him and are glad to finally see him. He's definitely an independent child and likes to do things on his own schedule. (We're working to change that).

We're now in that wierd world of 'are we really parents?'. It is so strange to be in the new stage of our lives. So far, it's a lot of late night feedings and sleeping in 3-hour intervals between feedings

The child is never coming

Well I'm a few days past my due date and there is still no progress on the child entering the world. Last night we even tried walking quickly (for me, for any normal person it would be walking slowly) and eating spicy mexican food. Nothing happened except a little heartburn.

My next hope for something happening is the full moon coming up on the 9th. Hopefully, he will respond to that.

Fun with an iron

Kelly and I picked up a Sukie iron-on book a few months ago and we finally decided to use it. We couldn't sleep tonight, so we thought we would take the oppurtunity to decorate some onesies for the little Mathlete. This is what our lives have turned into: baby crafts at midnight.

Lil Mathlete is now officially late since his due date was Wednesday, the 4th. We've decided that he must have inherited my lack of punctuality. I guess we have waited 9 months already, so a few more days shouldn't be a big deal.
