So Mrs Johnnymac and I spent most of the weekend waiting on Baby Johnnymac to show up. He was not obliging. We went for walks, we tried having her take a hot bath, we ate spicy food, we went for more walks, and... nothing. All day Saturday, all day Sunday. Nothing. He was a week late and didn't seem to be intent on being born anytime soon.
Around 4:00 on Sunday afternoon we took a nap for about an hour and then decided to take a walk before going over to a neighbor's house for dinner. We were about 5 minutes away from the house when Mrs Johnnymac said, "I think I just had a real contraction." We kept walking and then about 5 minutes later, "I think I had another one."
Yada. Yada. Yada. Hospital. Etc. Etc.
When it was all over at 8:57 on Monday morning, I finally got to meet this guy:
As you can see, he was worth the wait. Healthy as a horse and about as big as one, given the extra time he had to cook.
As you can also probably see, he was born on Monday and it's just now Wednesday and I'm writing a blog post about him, which means we just got home this afternoon. Things have been pretty hectic for the past few hours (days, really) and he's been spending a lot of time with Mom since we got home, but I made him promise that we have a date to watch the Astros tomorrow night and I'm going to make sure he doesn't miss it.
Let me tell you, I can't wait for tomorrow night to get here.
