The Birth Day

This kid sucks. I mean that literally, of course. William is a sucker. He will suck on anything near his mouth, he will suck hard, and he will not stop sucking. His favorite thing to suck is his entire fist.

We got around 2-2.5 hours of sleep (spaced out over three naps) after William was born in the wee hours of the morning yesterday. We had a few people come to visit. We received plenty of phone calls and emails from our wonderful friends and relatives. Thank you all so much for your kind words and support. The consensus seems to be that he will go by Will (or possibly Guillermo en Español).

We will go home tomorrow morning. It will be a nice birthday present for Melissa. Until then it’s likely to be more eating, sleeping, sucking, and pooping… more for some of us than others.

  4. Congratulations Rob and Melissa! I still remember when you announced to us buffalo on the way to Forest Glen during winter that Melissa was expecting. And then you told everyone at the the Two Brothers breakfast. So this baby is surely going to be a buffalo!

    Best wishes.
