So sorry this took so long. It's been truly crazy here at home and baby has been giving us some scares - just new parent stuff to keep us on our toes. Charlotte came today and assessed both of us and all is well.

Anyway, we decided to name DomerBaby Joseph Henry. He is strong and healthy, nursing well, and made it through his first car ride and heel poke at the pediatrician today with flying colors. I say he is strong like his mama. Everyone laughs at that, but whatever. They didn't have my labor.

Here are some photos:

Sometime on 3/8/09... I think this was about 18 hours into labor:

T.J. and Joseph after delivery. Poor T.J. looks exhausted!

First morning as a family alone. Look, they have the same adorable hairline!
Weighing in! Charlotte (holding Joseph) said he probably was more like 8lb8oz, but two hours and approximately 15 poop filled towels and blankets later he was official at 8lb2oz.
Sleepy Baby - after being awake the entire night he slept all day yesterday!
T.J. and I watching the newborn exam:

This is his "Angry" face:
Calming down a bit and hanging onto Daddy:
Look at that hair! I was so hoping baby would have hair
Mama is calming down, too:

Measuring up!

AWW congratulations! I heard your labor was quite long and're a rockstar, and kudos to TJ as well for being your support. Can't wait to hear more (though I understand you have your hands full right now ;-)
