On Sunday night at 11:37pm, after brave Katie labored for nearly 22 hours, an 8 lb 7 oz Luke Paxton Jones left his cozy womb to enter the world. Big thanks to Kelley Torgerson, who was Katie's doula and an absolutely indispensable help. Thanks also to my parents for providing emotional and edible support and for helping care for the little guy when we got home.
Here are a few pictures to start. We'll post more when we've recovered a bit.
Here's a picture of him right after he was weighed. The picture doesn't do justice to how elongated his poor head was--it was a tight squeeze.
Here's the new momma this morning. He looks a lot like her.
Here's daddy trying not to break him. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it.
This is where he is right now--just hanging out in the swing that Uncle Ben & Aunt Bethany lent us. He's been very docile so far. His favorite things to do are suck (pinkie fingers included), sleep, and grunt.
No more baby in tummy, Clara Lee. He came out!
