He's Here!

It was one of those "don't close your eyes or you'll miss it" deals. Danica calls me at about 5:30pm. "Mom, I'm trickling -- I think my water broke." At 6:00pm contractions began in earnest. We were celebrating my father's 78th birthday, so I showered and headed over at 8:15pm, after cake and singing concluded. Danica was on the couch, breathing through the contractions, sister and friends supporting her. Shortly before 9:00pm she felt the need to push. "Ryan, get the car ready and let's go!" By 9:25pm she was settled in a hospital bed, checked, declared ready to push and a beautiful baby boy was born at 10:13pm. Whew!

He's here -- 8lb.8oz, 21 inches, lots of dark hair, full of vim and vigor from the get-go, but without an official name as of yet. Jameson is probably what he will be called, but whether he is William Jameson or Jameson William or some still some other combination is undetermined. I will keep you posted. Hey -- when you arrive that suddenly, you can't expect everything to be ready!

Congratulations! I can't believe that it moved that fast. One daughter has the award for longest labor and the other for shortest!
