Baby Update

I am pleased to report that John Patrick Eakes arrived at 1:22pm today. He weighed in at 7lb, 7oz, and is 20-3/4" long.

John is doing great and has been nothing but pleasant and serene since his arrival. That will change as my genetic contribution asserts itself.

Mom was a whiz in labor. She barely made a peep and had young John out and screaming after 10-15 minutes of pushing. She deserved to have a smooth delivery this time, because she had a much tougher time delivering Sarah last time around.

I appreciate the many positive thoughts, prayers, messages, and interesting name suggestions, and I hope to have some pictures up on Tuesday.
