Our friends have a new baby!

Our friends/neighbor’s, Mark & Laurie, had their baby last night! His name is Shaw, he was born at 11:58pm, was 8 pounds even and measured 19.5″ long.

Susan is quite excited to go visit with them, which we’ll do later this afternoon. She and Laurie have been close pregnancy buddies for the past months, so it’ll be a big deal for her to be there.

Congrats to Mark & Laurie!!

Update – We got to see this this afternoon and take a few photos. Susan held Shaw nearly the entire time we were in the room, but she did start the process with “I might break him,” to which they immediately told her she wouldn’t. I didn’t get an opportunity to hold onto him – partly because I’ve got a scratchy throat and partly because Susan wouldn’t give him up! She explained later that she needed more experience. šŸ™‚

The whole time she was holding onto him, Olivia was kicking/punching him! Susan also did a mental disconnect – the baby in her arms was completely different from the baby inside her.

    Congrats to Mark and Laurie! What a sweet little boy he is! You look pretty comfortable holding that wee one, Susan. See you didn’t break him. He seemed very content as did you. Love

    P.S. Don’t you just hate what happens when you turn the camera to get a long tall view?
