Cat's in the Craddle

If you said "girl," you may need to pay up! Gabriel Joseph was born on February 20 at 7:04 pm. He was 8 pounds, 4 ounces and is 20 inches long...somehow that last stat sounds a little different when you're talking about a boy baby...

I think that will be the ongoing theme for the next year: "Wow, this is a lot different with a boy baby." Julie is doing fantastic. She is a super baby deliverer - her new moto is 15 minutes or less or your baby's free.

Gabe is doing great, Julie is doing great and I am peachy keen. Unfortunately, the stomach bug discovered our little Molly sometime last night and she spent all night throwing up at Nonnie's house. At last check, she was doing better, but still not feeling too much like her normal perky little self. She will have to wait a couple of days to see her baby brother. I'm sure once they do meet, she will wonder why her new baby doll smells like poop every now and again, and why Mommy keeps bear hugging him for 10 minutes at a time...surely those two activities are related somehow!

Anyways, that's all for now. I couldn't wrestle the camera away from Julie, so there are no pictures to post right now, but I promise to have some up this afternoon or tomorrow. Keep my kids and the Mrs. in your prayers.

The Austin aunties demand a photo! Give up the camera, mom! Does Gabriel look anything like Molly when she was born? We love you all.
