happy birthday, Eamon James

It's taken me a little time to get on here to post, but I suspect I'll be forgiven with one look at this sweet face:

Rod and I welcomed Eamon James into the world on 1/31/11, at 11:24 p.m.  He weighed 8 lbs. 7 oz.,  was 20" long, and 100% perfect.

He made his arrival during some of the craziest weather I've ever seen in Texas:

It was pretty nice to be holed up in the hospital while the snow & ice were happening, with this little guy to keep us warm. 

That Friday, we were finally ready to brave the elements & head home.  The roads were still horrific, but Eamon was none the wiser - he slept through the entire journey!

We're all doing great and adjusting well to our new family life.  Thanks for reading, and I hope to get back to semi-regular posting soon!!
