Julian James has been born!!! This is a super fast post with a small amount of info... I've had a broken 6 hours of sleep over the past 48 hours and need to go to sleep while Julian is sleeping!

I promise to put pictures up soon...

Anyhow, 5 1/2 hours after being induced with pitocin, Julian was born (only 3 pushes!) on July 29th. He weighs 8 lbs. 10 oz. and is 21 inches long. He was born with a unique feature: he has 12 fingers and 12 toes... the fingers have already been "tied off" in which they will basically cut circulation off to the "extra" fingers (there's no bone attachment), they will die and fall off in a few days, and his hands will look normal... The toes have bone in them, so they will need to be removed surgically when he's older. Once we've seen a specialist, we'll know more... It's called polydactyly, if you're interested in googling it. Other than the extra digits, he is a normal, healthy, beautiful baby! We are so excited and happy to finally have him here with us!

Like I said, I'm tired! So that's it for now. Check back soon!

Just a quick post to announce that Kathleen gave birth to Lauren Louise this morning! She weighed 8lbs. 6.5 oz. and is 22 inches long! She is a beautiful baby! Kathleen has already posted a lot of pictures on facebook... I'll have to figure out how to get a couple of those pictures on here... I'm just too tired right now and ought to get to bed!

As of one hour from now, I will be one week past my due date (should I be surprised???). I'm 2 1/2 cm dilated and 75% effaced and having plenty of Braxton Hicks contractions... HOPEFULLY I'll go into labor on my own tomorrow, if not, I'll be headed to the hospital early Thursday morning to be induced.

Check back in a few days to see baby pictures!
