Ottababy Itzaboy

Baby Pine Cone, with the coaxing of an epidural, made his grand entrance to the world on his actual due date of May 16 at 2:11 AM. Baby Boy Pine Cone is a big boy at 8 lbs 13 oz and 20 1/2" long. Mama and baby are healthy and doing very well. Due to my sister's inability to decide on a name, baby boy is still Baby Pine Cone until further notice.

Girls are excited! I told them at 4:15 AM when everyone decided to wake up simultaneuously. (Argh.) Caffeine will be my friend today. Yes, they did go back to sleep finally. It only took 2 full CD's to make it happen.

Edited to add:
I'm a dork and I make up songs. I'll teach the kids these songs and we'll go in and perform them for our new baby boy.

To the tune of BINGO:
We have a little boy and his name is Leland
Vaughn is his middle name
L-e-l-a-n-d
L-e-l-a-n-d
L-e-l-a-n-d
And Leland is his name-o'!

To the tune of the Oscar Meyer Bologna song:
Our little boy has a first name,
It's L-e-l-a-n-d
Our little boy has a second name,
It's V-a-u-g-h-n
Oh, we love to sing it everyday,
We love him lots,
That's why we say!
We have a boy and his name is Leland
L-e-l-a-n-d, hooray!
(Okay, it's a little rough, but I'm running on little sleep.)

Good day, all!

Edit part 2:

Went to take girls to see Leland. Had to lie and say K- was a sibling since it is strict that no children other than siblings get to come in.

Camera had dead batteries. Ugh. No pictures of our boy. However, he has a full head of blonde (or as my niece J- would say, yellow) hair. He's sporting blue eyes at the moment. They look to come home tomorrow.

Congrats Aunt! And congrats to your sister too! How cool that he made his etrance on his due date (Lucas was 1 day off - it is pretty neat!) And he's shares a bday w/my hubby, so a special day indeed :)

And hey, guess what? I make up songs too LOL Also to the tune of BINGO!
There was a mommy who had a girl
and Kayla was her name-o
K-A-Y-L-A etc etc
and it convienently works with Lucas too!

Another one is to the tune of Frere Jaques:
Brother Lucas, Brother Lucas
Are you sleeping...and the rest is the same. Just changed it to "brother Lucas" and "sister Kayla" LOL So you're not alone :)

LOL, I'm a little late, but I make up songs too. Lately we've been having fun with variant's of Barney's I Love You song.

Congrats on the new nephew!
