birthdays

My birthday was on Tuesday.

There are certain things I've always thought would be fun to do on my birthday, given its time of year. Like, go to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. Or have a snow day (this was something I really longed for as a child).

This year my birthday was on Mardi Gras, and it snowed. But I didn't care. Nothing really mattered, actually, because I got an early birthday present:

Please meet Eamon Fletcher Wall. Born February 13 at 1:51pm.
7lbs 11 oz and 22 inches long.

Christopher has promised to write up the birth story, which I hope to share when it's ready. In the meantime we are at home, getting to know little Eamon, resting and recovering.

Congratulations!! He is absolutely beautiful, and what a great name! What a wonderful birthday present. I'm so excited for you guys!

P.S. So he ends up with your dark hair - interesting!

Yay! I'm so glad to finally see a clear picture of his face. Do you have a sense yet of who he takes after? I hope everything is going well and you're all figuring it out. What a life change! Congratulations!
