New Addition

This past Sunday we welcomed a new addition to our family with the birth of baby Nathaniel William Husky.

Nathaniel didn't come easy, he was stuck in the breech position for many weeks before his due date and despite all our best efforts would not turn. So when Kristen's water broke in the wee hours of the morning on November 6th, we rushed to the hospital to prepare for a delivery by Cesarian section.  Nathaniel was born at 2:11 am and weighed in at 7 lb 10 oz. At least that's the time listed on the papers. It was a little confusing in there since the time change for daylight savings was happening, and only half the clocks had been changed. The surgery was uneventful and we were off to recovery for Nathaniel's first bath and then on to our room for a little rest before daybreak.

Lillian is absolutely thrilled at having a little brother. She has already learned how to hold and cuddle him, and loves to sing songs for him.
