Our little family +1

Marcie had been having contractions for the last day or two, and consistently since 2:00 am this morning.

We arrived at the hospital today at about 10:00 am and sat in triage for about 3-4 hours while they tracked her progress.At 6:24 pm on this day, August 16th 2008, Troy Oliver Paternoster blessed us with his presence after only a handfull of pushes by Marcie (much to her epidural enhanced enjoyment). He weighs 8 lbs 6.9 oz, and measures 19.75 inches. He has dark hair (for the moment) that is about an inch long (except for up front - dang mulletts).

We feel very blessed that all went well and there were no complications. Our boy has ten fingers and ten toes and a very lucky Mother, Father, and big sister.

Welcome to the world Troy Oliver Paternoster.

Congrats, Marcie...I know what it's like to have 2 kids so close together. My first 2 are almost 14months apart. That first year is crazy, but cherish it cuz it flies by. It is so fun to see your cute family. You look sooo good in your pics. I wish I looked like that right after giving birth!
