Lovin' from the oven

So the other day I was working from home, sitting in my jammies and eating lunch while watching a presentation. And I thought maybe something was happening with the baby, but I wasn't sure (I've never had one before). I called the hubby to come home, just in case I needed to visit the doctor.

At 2:30 p.m., we paid a visit to the hospital.

At 4:09 p.m., we had this.

(Photo by Sub-Zero Productions: HD video solutions for the Red River Valley. More specifically, my brother Cory. We sort of didn't have time to bring in the camera and other things from the car.)

His name is Jack Lee, after the hubby's dad Jack and my dad Lee. He weighed in at 7 pounds, 7 ounces, and was 19.5 inches long -- not bad, considering he popped out of the oven almost three weeks early. He's pretty sweet. And has a piercing wail.

We're still trying to figure each other out. It might take a while. So again, my posting will likely be sporadic. Unless you're interested in how many times I make omelets in the coming months.

Don't forget to enter the restaurant.com gift card giveaway in the meantime!

With love,
Angel in the Kitchen (sans makeup, with I-just-had-a-baby hair), Hubby, and Baby Jack
