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
And Leland is his name-o'!
To the tune of the Oscar Meyer Bologna song:
Our little boy has a first name,
Our little boy has a second name,
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
(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.
