It’s a Boy!!!

Finally!!  After about 27-1/2 hours of labor, Sharon finally gave birth to our little baby boy.  And I’ll tell you what: I now how a much deeper, more profound respect for all mothers.  Wow!!!  It’s not possible to adequately describe what women go through while giving birth.  Even the videos you see of childbirth don’t do it justice.  All I can say is thank you to moms everywhere!

So, back to the stuff you all want to know.  His name is James Eliot Chemacki.  He was born at 1:44 AM on August 10, 2006 (right on his due date).  At birth he weighed 7 pounds 12 ounces and was 20 inches long.  He’s the cutest, sweetest little baby on Earth!  And he is strong - he rolled onto his side about 5 minutes after being born!

James and Sharon are doing well. We all came home from the hospital yesterday evening (Saturday), arriving home around 7 PM. We didn’t get much sleep, as you would probably guess.  We were up essentially every 1-2 hours all night last night, either feeding or changing diapers.

It’s still hard to believe I’m a dad and that James is ours. He’s our wonderful little miracle.

    He is just beautiful. A little red, but you would be too. What a great head of hair! It is such a happy thing to see a new baby who you know will have all the love and nuturing that he will need. He is one lucky boy. You are one lucky family. My best, best wishes go to James Eliot for a good life full of love, happiness and health.

    HI Tim and Sharon, Congrats!!!! Congrats!!!! Congrats!!!!. He’s a very handsome little bundle that will keep you enthralled and running. I’m glad to hear everything went well (mind you, after a Olympiam labor). Remember, in the big picture the sleep-starved nights don’t really last too long at all. Love his famous sounding name, “James Eliot.” Take care … Clare
