Hello Max!

Max was born 8 September 2006, at 6:06 am.
He weighs 6 pounds and 1.2 ounces.
He is 19 1/4 inches long.

Here he is! Age 10 minutes.

Doesn't he look happy sitting under the pizza light? He was stretching out and all content like he was lying on the beach. I imagine what a state of nirvana he must be in, all warm and not a care in the world. He's not even bothered with the concept of a "care".

Here we all are. Debra looks pretty good all things considered, I'd say. The contractions started around midnight Monday. She was in labor until Friday morning. She got the epidural Thursday about 9:00 pm. Max was delivered via Cesaerean, because of "failure to progress".

Max is very expressive. These pictures are after his first feeding, when he was about two hours old.

Congrats Drew. Congrats Deb. Hello MAX, you are a beautiful baby. So what's his full name? Did you sneak Ignatius (sp?) in there somewhere?


P.S. No riding for you this weekend :( I'll shoot some video so you can see what the DC Randonneurs ride was like.

What happy news! A new little person in the world who's a Drew-Debby collaboration. The world just became a little more interesting! What sweet photos, and what a neat kid/adult he'll grow up to be -- enjoy every stage of it! Best to Debby -- Love, Wendy
