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!
