Presenting...

baby D, who was born at 7.30 yesterday morning via C section. Until about 8 PM last night, he was nameless, but Carrie and Dave finally settled on Brig Paul after spending the day getting to know him.

He is absolute perfection. His fan club is already large. Here is Yah Yah, looking for evidence of dimples (he has them in both cheeks!). He is sizing her up as well, and wondering how soon he can get her to buy him a Wii.

Here he is, demanding food. Already an A+ nurser.
Burping like a champ. Can you believe all that hair?
Cousin Scout, who kept fighting with Calder for turns to hold him.
Calder, working his magic to put baby Brig to sleep.
We kept a couple of assistants close by when the kids were holding him, to make Dave feel more at ease.
Welcome to the family Brig! We are so happy you are here.

I'm so happy for you all. what an adorable little boy. Tons of hair! I'm happy to hear he's taken to nursing. Sometimes babies have a rocky start. What a happy time.

yeah, i really didn't do a very good job with the stats. i can't believe i didn't get a single picture of dave with the baby! probably because the whole time we were there, he didn't get a chance to touch him.

we'll get better pics up soon. dave has a ton of great ones... including some very graphic ones of the c-section.

Hip hip horay, Briiiiiiig.

Wow! 100% Lewis. He is really cute. Love the cheeks and hair. I look forward to meeting the little man. Welcome to the world of parenthood. Brig is lucky to come to a family with great parents.

After meeting little Brig this afternoon we agree that he is perfect. I loved seeing him sleep in Carrie's lap with his fist nuzzled up against his chin. He clearly already knows and loves his mom. I'm sure he knows his Dad too, but Dave didn't have a chance to hold while we were there. Welcome to the family Brig.
