Y'all, I promise promise promise to write a huge long post about this soon and tell you all about the experience. But I know I've been remiss in even just posting the big news--and it is Big News--so let me do that, for the record.

He's here! Andrew James Wyckoff made his inaugural appearance at 6:31 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 24. He weighed a crazy 9 pounds and 4 (and a quarter) ounces, and he was 20.5 inches long. He cried immediately to let us know he was all good, if perhaps a bit chilly.

He was born via c-section, so we stayed in the hospital a few days. All in all, it was a good experience. He's healthy and lovely, and I'm recovering without any complications.

Seconds after the birth:

Proud Papa!

Me holding Andrew (a day or so later):

Unlike his big brother, he is not a little bitty version of his daddy or his grandaddy. We're not sure yet who he resembles, but we think he's really, really cute nonetheless...

David's taking the week off, so we're spending some time bonding as a family. If you live in town, drop by and say hello!
