Sweet Baby James

He's here!

James Francis made his debut on Thursday at 3:32pm at a sizeable 8lb. 8oz. and 20 in. long.

We came home on Saturday and everyone is doing well. James loves to eat and lets us get a bit of sleep. Monica calls him "Jim" or "crying" and likes to mimic him when he really gets squawking. We all have adjusting to do, which seems like that's all you do in the early weeks, really. Newborns change so fast!

Monica hasn't been too interested in holding James, as you can see by this pic:

But she will give him little kisses on the top of head and "hugs" which means she touches the crown of her head to his, kind of like these guys:

I'm excited to get to know our little man and continue to make him more and more a part of our family. We are truly blessed!

Andrea, congratulations! We just got home from vacation yesterday and I've been wondering how long I should wait to call you... and then you post this news! I'm so happy for you. I hope the labor went well, and that James is being an easy baby for you right now. Hopefully we'll see you soon!

Hi Andrea!
Congrats to the Lynn family!! I got your email and thought, I haven't seen Monica in a long time - I wonder if she puts pictures on her blog?...And of course you do and now I am all caught up in your life! Now you are on my google reader and I will be sure to stay caught up. Let's get together when things settle down - I'd love to meet James! Congrats again!!
