Gabriel Robert L- - - has officially entered into our world bringing with him joy and a big appetite. After a long, hard, and slow moving labor, Rachel won the battle of attrition, but for now, baby is having the last laugh. Both are doing well - Baby is very healthy, quiet, and alert. All he does is eat and sleep..... but sleep is good (and so is eating - I wonder if he's ready for morels???) . Mom is releaved ..... but very weak and worn out. It takes a lot to slow her down.....

ONE FULL DAY AFTER BIRTH AND NO KNITTING YET!!!!

But she didn't miss the Dancing with the Stars Finale. (Don't ask me who won... I missed it again!)

Dad and the kids are thrilled to see him, and he seems to tolerate our excitement.....

Peter has already begun to fill him in on animals and toys, and is quick to share ALL of his personal treasures!

Breanna is a little suspicious about losing her baby status, but she is amused by his baby antics and apparant helplessness. At least she is now bigger than someone. (But I wonder for how long?)

Rachel will be back soon, and soon boot me off the blog..... and for now I have resisted the urge to show any of the pictures of a worn-out mom!!
