Baby!

Nathaniel Johns Warren, 8lb, 9 ounces, 20 inches. Born 10:50pm December 7th. We'll have pictures at some point, but we forgot the cord for connecting the camera to the laptop.

Holy moly, but we had a labor of beyond normal difficulty. We're both fine, relatively speaking, but Nathaniel and I are both pretty bruised and sore. I lost track at the time, but I'm told that pushing went on for six hours - he's a relatively big kid, and was really not in a great position. And it turns out he had the umbilical cord around his neck - not tight enough to cause serious problems, but enough that he wasn't tolerating some positions that would have been really nice to take during labor - at a certain point he basically demanded that I lie on my one side and not move, which was just about the worst position as far as I was concerned for pain.

What an alien, endearing, totally dependent, brand new person.
