Eric and Dawn Olsen are new parents, again. The details have been posted on Dawn Olsen’s blog, but I’ll summarize here.
Alexander Kirk Olsen was born at 7:05am Eastern, this morning, and weighed 9 lbs even. He was 20.75 inches long.
And yes, I keep using the past tense, but that’s because they grow and shrink hour by hour these first few days!
Congratulations, Dawn and Eric!
Thanks Phillip! I’m back for a little while. Dawn and Alex are doing very well. We made it to the hospital at 6:40 and he was born at 7:05 – no messing around this time! For all the 24 hours of pain, suffering, fatigue, emotional distress, and drugs conflicting with each other when Lily was born four years ago, this time it couldn’t have gone much more easily or quickly (if it had, we wouldn’t have made it to he hospital) – when he was ready he was ready. Dawn thinks it was the Mexican food last night.
Thanks so much for all your kind thoughts!
