Michele and I are delighted to announce the arrival of our son Alexander David Lennon.
As many of you know, we had a C-section scheduled for 8:45 this morning. Michele went into labor at 3:00 this morning. Michele is recovering and doing well.
- Birth – February 15, 2010 @ 9:13 am
- 9 lbs 1 oz.
- 21 inches long
- 36 1/2 centimeter head circumference (thanks to those who previously pointed out that he would have a medicine-ball head if it were inches instead of centimeters.)
Mommy got to hold her baby boy pretty soon after delivery and was very happy. Right now she continues to rest and heal. Thank you to all for your wishes congratulations.
Daddy Dave changed his first ever boy diaper. Far from the last, of course. 🙂 The early thinking is that he looks like the Hane genes are strong in his veins, just like his sister.
Sophia came by to visit her new brother. Honestly, we were nervous about how it would go. When we got a call telling us she didn’t even want to enter the building, we got even more anxious. She’s not a huge fan of hospitals. When she came into the room, she just wandered around for a while exploring, though at least she greeted Mommy.
Once she got accustomed to the idea of seeing a baby, she was most intrigued. Sophia waved and kept saying “Hi, Baby” and “Baby, bed”. We have video of her being very interested in her brother, but I think the Rex guest wireless network is prohibiting me from uploading the larger files, so that may just have to wait. All in all, a good experience with Sophia.
As time permits, I’ll post more pix, video, and experiences.
