Well, we had an induction scheduled for July 29th, but apparently our little guy had other plans. At four o’clock in the afternoon on the 28th labor kicked in, and by eight o’clock he was born. He’s perfect. I really wanted to post a picture here, but then I heard that blog pictures get picked up by Google Images and I’m feeling a tad over-protective at the moment. That said, I am very aware that Google Images currently has 400 million (almost exactly) images of “babies” so I really should lighten up. I’m sure I will in the next day or so, and then I’ll come back and post a picture.
But, since I’m a writer I’m going to take this opportunity to dazzle you all with my ability to paint a gorgeous picture of my child with words. It will be so vivid that you will all experience, in awesome wonder, just how cute my baby boy is. It will be as if he’s sitting beside you, sleeping … or pooping, since those are the two things he does really well.
Ready? Okay. *rubs hands together* Imagine a baby monkey with almost no hair, and without a tail. Done! Cute, right?
Thanks for all the comments on the previous post, I read them all and really appreciated the well wishes. I’ll reply to them in the next day or so once I get tired of just staring at my son.
Oh, I almost forgot, we named him Isaiah.
