The Boy

Melissa went into labor yesterday, three days before her 30th birthday, about 10 days prior to her due date. We went to the hospital mid-afternoon. At 1:19 AM this morning (August 12, 2009) William Miles “Fig” Raguet-Schofield came into this world, waterlogged and tender. Melissa and William are both doing fine.

I am utterly exhausted after merely assisting with a day-long labor. I can’t even imagine how Melissa must feel. She’s one tough cookie. I can only assume the boy will be just as tough.

  1. Congratulations!!!
    That’s one quiet 18 second video! Great to have that and remember this silent time :)

    Our love to you all. We can’t wait to meet Baby William!

  2. Congratulations to you guys! Please tell Melissa that I am so proud of her! – Ashley :)

  3. William looks great! Congrats and welcome to the world of parenting. Of course, I didn’t really feel like a parent until Faith was about 2. Before that I was more of a monster keeper.
