And annoucing....

The safe and happy arrival our our second son on January 15th, 2007 at 2:41 a.m. He weighed in at a hefty 8lbs, 2 oz and measured 21.5 inches long. We are simply entranced by this marvelous creature.

The induction, labour, and delivery would be enough fodder for a late-night made-for-TV movie, so I will perhaps tell that story after I have managed a nap. Suffice it to say, we fought the typical problems of overcrowding and bed-availability in Canadian hospitals and spent the last 6 days negotiating that in our hospital. However, we got our wish - our sons have two different birthdays. I guess overcrowding worked in our favour, in some respects.

I am SO glad to be home.

For those who requested, a photo will be emailed as soon as I can get my act together.

Thank you for all of your well wishes for this little guy and for C. on his birthday. And thank you for your support in getting me here. Knowing that so many people were cheering me on was close to my heart during the last week.

I am overjoyed to read of the safe arrival of your second son. I have goosebumps all over and the biggest smile on my face!!!! What a journey you have been on the last two years. I am so thankful that you now know the joy of being a mother to a living child and that C still has his own special day. May his life be filled with health, happiness and adventure.

i'm not a blogger, only a faithful reader. i just want to stay i'm so happy for you! i went thru my own subsequent pregnancy this year after losing my first baby at 38 wks, and i truly felt all your pain and fear as you got closer to the end. i can tell you, you're gonna love and appreciate the new little guy so much you think your heart will explode. even when you've barely slept for two months straight!

I'm checking back on you constantly to hear some more news. I trust that you are busy marvelign at your perfect baby boy and of course the crash-course in newborn parenting. Hope everything is going well.
