New baby!

Our new as-yet-unnamed son was born at 1:26 this morning.

We almost didn't make it to the hospital. Vicki woke me up at about 12:30am and said that her water broke. We bundled up Ellie and took her to my mom's house and then I drove like a wild man across town to the hospital. I was running red lights and stop signs like crazy.

Vicki's mom met us here at the hospital and thank god she did. Within minutes of getting Vicki into the bed the baby was out and Vicki's mom ended up delivering him. No joke! He came so fast that the doctors and nurses weren't ready for him. Luckily, her mom is a retired nurse with years of experience. I, on the other hand, was pretty much useless :)

Vicki and baby are both sleeping now. I'll post photos soon.

Wow, congrats! I guess fast is better than hours and hours of labor, though. :)
