Hey, everyone, this is greencarnation's hubby. Just wanted to let everybody know for her that our son, Ruaidhrí, was born today at 3:26. Things went a little awry from our birth plan, I'll let her tell the whole story, but all in all it was a good experience, and the baby is healthy and precious, and Sophia's doing just fine. Ruaidhrí is 20.5" long, 7lbs 2.5 oz, has his mother's eyes (at least I think so), my long fingered hand, and a schnoz that promises great things in the future.110806-222823.jpg


Wifey (23) and Hubby (23) since 07/08.  Enjoying DS baby.gif born 8/6/11!
