Adam is here!

It took awhile but Adam finally arrived on Monday at 6 in the evening. He weighed 8lbs 80z. Not my biggest baby but big enough for the nursing staff to freak out over. He looks like a baby, all small and stuff. As Sarah says, "Adam is a dude." Adam also is not sleeping.

Of course, as there seems to be some sort of requirement about it, Annie, Emma and Laura are all sick so we are trying to keep them from touching the baby. Not that Annie has a problem with it, she is 10 and can figure that stuff out on her own.

We stayed at the hospital as long as we could stand it, just over 24 hours. It was a nice hospital, don't get me wrong, but there really is no place like home, except Disneyland and no one really wants to give birth there.

Adam is cute and all that is babyish. Except for the not sleeping right now. I'll post pictures in the morning, or whenever I wake up after staying up with him.

Love you, and can't wait to see the pictures of your little guy. Hope your girls get better soon.

I'm sure you'll enjoy your little Adam as much as we enjoy our not so little anymore Adam. I can't wait to see the pictures.

Congratulations on your "little" dude!! He's quite a cutie! I hope he starts sleeping for you soon.

Congrats! Sorry about the not sleeping - maybe it's a boy thing... If you need help out, let me know!

He's so squishy.

We faced sick siblings with each new baby. It was not fun! I hope the girls get well soon and hopefully Adam will start to sleep for you! He is sweet, Rachel! Congratulations to all of you! Miss you guys.
