It's a boy!

Elliot Arthur made his way into the world early Saturday morning. He and I are both recovering from some effects of a difficult labor and delivery but we're doing well. He is such a fighter and M is wearing a path in the carpet between our separate hospital floors.

He was 8lbs, 4oz and 20.5 inches. I tried to post a picture but I can't get it to work on M's phone. I'll get one up when I can, along with more details about the last couple of days.

I haven't been able to spend much time with him yet but I've had long enough to know I'm head over heels in love.
