He's Here!!!

It's been 9 days now and most of you either keep track of me through facebook or talk to me in person so it isn't news. But it still feels like news to me. I want to shout it from the rooftops.

OUR SWEET BABY IS HERE!

Here are the stats:

Date: August 11, 2009
Time: 2:02am after approximately 2 1/2 hours of labor and 2 minutes of pushing. That's a lot of 2's!!
Weight: 7 pounds 8 ounces
Length: 20 1/2 inches long

Absolutely darling.

My next post will be his birth story, with pictures.

Until then, you get to help name my baby!

Well, sort of...

I try to be pretty vigilant about keeping my children's identity secure on here, just in case, so they all have nicknames. But you know that.

So it's time to come up with a nickname for this new baby.

Some ideas I have:
  • Baby A
  • Peanut
  • Super Diaper Baby (SDB for short. Those with boys who read Captain Underpants books will really understand.)
Short list. Not all that creative. You can vote for any of my ideas or come up with your own and then we can either put it to a final vote, or I'll decide which I like best.

No more rhymes now I mean it! Anybody want a peanut? ha ha ha

Peanut fits best with your other nicknames. Although he might not like it if you're still blogging when he's 16...

Congratulations Heather!!! I can't wait to read the birth story!! I am sure he is darling, just as all of your babies are! :)

Yay! I'm on 12wks to go...home stretch! (we're having another boy too).

I'd avoid SDB and Baby A cuz he won't be a baby forever...I'd pick something that's a little more age-adjustable, you know?
So of your list I'd go with Peanut...it seems to fit in with the other names you have pretty well.

Congratulations!! I am so excited for you guys. Apparently I need to be better about checking your blog. He is absolutely beautiful!

I like peanut too.
SDB sounds too close to STD to me. Sorry to be weird, but that is what I thought when I read it!!!
