The wait is over!

Balin has arrived! He was born July 10th, 2007 at 1:44 pm. He weighed 7 lbs. 13.6 oz and was about 20 inches long. We are having so much fun with him! The delivery went went very well and other than some jaundice he was very healthy! The poor guy has been through a lot this week though because he was circumcised on Wednesday and late Thursday night we discovered that he has an ear infection! Poor baby. Everything is going really well though except for a lack of internet! We will be posting much more whent hat happens!

Last night we went to the Denton Fireworks show put on by the local Kiwanis group. It's actually very well done and allways lots of fun. They do it at the UNT football stadium so we sit on about the 50 yard line (astro turf) and enjoy. I had forgotten that all along we've been telling Ayden that the baby was going to be here "after the fireworks" so of course he couldn't understnd why there was no baby when we got up this morning. oops. Soon, at least we can all hope. We did have maternity pictures taken last week at a park. They were lots of fun to get done and the photographer is very nice. We are looking forward to getting back the pictures any day now! My belly measured 40 cms at my appointment this week. Thats big for those of you unfamiliar with preggo bellies. Very big. And I'm not done. eeek. we are now hopefully less than one week away from meeting Balin Conrad and though we are all very excited we are also getting tired of waiting. The anticipation starts to wear you down after a while. We are in major need of holding this baby.
