It's a Boy!!

If there are any regular readers of this blog (I think there might be a few of you out there), you may have noticed the lack of posts the past few weeks. It wasn't from lack of trying, just from lack of sleep and spare time. My wife and I (well, she did all the hard work) just recently had a new baby boy, Henry Carter Abbott.

He was born on July 16th at 5:57am. He weighed a healthy 7 pounds 13 ounces at birth, and measured 20 3/4 inches long. He's the first child for us, and we both couldn't be happier. The lack of sleep is taking a little bit to get used to, but I wouldn't change it for the world.

As far as the blog is concerned, the posts will probably be a little more sporadic than usual until we get into a new routine, or I can learn how to blog one-handed. Speaking of "hands," I think he might be a lefty like his dad, but we'll have to wait a little longer to figure that one out.

With our first, the lack of sleep was actually the hardest thing for me to get used to. At this point, I am an old pro at not sleeping.

Enjoy him, they really do grow up fast.
