It's a boy!
by Karla ° Friday, December 22, 2006
Karla delivered the baby sometime this afternoon. It was supposed to be at 1:30, but surgery was delayed. He is 6 lbs 11 oz. He's having a little difficulty with his breathing, but the doctors say it's normal and it should clear up in a couple hours. Otherwise mom and baby are both doing great. I got to talk to Mark and he is very pleased and proud. Congratulations to the whole family!

Excellent! Congratualtions to Mom and Dad and welcome to Nate.

Karla and Mark, I am so very happy for you, I am crying tears of joy.

Heck, there have been births in my husband's family that haven't affected me as much.

I am guessing this will go down as one of the best Christmases ever! You two will make the most wonderful parents to this most wonderful little boy.
