Introducing our circus child

Our son Douglas Maximus, aka Bubba, was born February 27, 2011 at 23:29.
He weighed in at 7.38lbs - 3347g and stood tall at 20.5" - 52cm.
Mamma, Diver Dude and Bubba are all a little shell shocked since it all happened at the speed of light - he was born less than five hours after we got checked in - but we're happy, healthy and safely at home.

Promise to tell the war story later, for now I leave you with an image of perfect bliss ;)

  33. Just checked in on a whim (I found your blog via Cats with Passports in the US Foreign Service blogosphere over a year ago) and I am so incredibly happy for you and your husband! What a wonderful surprise to see that little face - such a beautiful boy you have! I had my first baby, a girl, last October. It is an amazing, fabulous experience. I love his name and I am so, so happy for you guys. Congratulations.
