Our Son is Here!

He's here. William Riley North was born at 9:14 pm on Thursday, February 22nd 2007. He weighed 8 pounds 7 ounces and was 20 inches long. It was a pretty traumatic birth, so Holly is resting and the baby is in the Emergency Care Nursery. He wasn't breathing when he was born in the operating room. Here he is looking pretty sad!!

2/24 UPDATE:
Well, William has improved a LOT in the past 24 hours - he's out of the ICU and he's in the room with me and Holly. He still needs to be monitored for a couple more days, so he and Holly will be in the hospital maybe until Monday. All is well, and he's a cute kid!

Congratulations Charles! Parenthood is so great. I hope you and Holly have as much fund as me and Jill are having.

Congratulations Charles and Holly--we're so thankful William is doing better and will get to be home soon! I look forward to meeting the little guy and holding him.
