OMG I have a baby! I'm at the hospital because things didn't go quite according to plan, but in trying to use their wifi network it erased my entire post
: so I'm just gonna copy the birth announcement DH sent out, cuz it cracks me up, and then tell you the rest tomorrow.
"Oliver Roland Cox was born in Arlington, Virginia, today, August 24, 2007, at 12:41 pm to the proud parents of Paul and Julia Cox.
Like his father before him, Oliver successfully fooled everyone into thinking he was going to come out head first but, two days prior, he secretly shifted himself into a breech position.
After 15 hours of home labor, this breech problem was discovered when the midwife, feeling for Oliver's head, found his testicles instead.
The whole gang subsequently moved to a local hospital, whereupon his mother gave birth to him by CS, where the first thing that emerged happened to be Oliver's buttocks.
His father is already planning to point out to Oliver's future prom date that the first thing of Oliver's anybody touched were his balls, and the first thing anyone saw was his ass.
Young Mr. Oliver came into the world at a fighting weight of 9 lbs., and is currently listed as being 21 inches long.
Both mother and son have fallen fast asleep. And dad will soon follow."
I'll tell you my side tomorrow! For now, suffice it to say that we're both totally thrilled with our new little one, and in my mind how it turned out doesn't matter cuz he's healthy and we're all ok. I'm just hoping that my cat doesn't fall into the aqua doula while we're at the hospital
