Baby Lincoln

It's really happened! Baby Lincoln Clay Millar arrived today at 4:35 p.m. As you can see from the picture, he's 8 pounds 10 ounces, 20 inches long. He's a happy healthy baby boy! Lots of hair. The labor went super well. We were called in this morning at about 6:30 a.m., Camille was put on Pitocin at about 7:00, and water was broke at about 9:00. She was a superstar. She did do an epidural which worked well, but felt quite a bit of pressure at the end. After pushing for an hour and fifteen minutes, Lincoln came into this world screaming and crying with a quivering lip.I got to cut the cord, Hah!After that, he was cleaned up and weighed. Then I wheeled him down to Mother Baby, where they gave him a full on bath and gave him his first outfit. After that Lincoln and I had about a half hour of uninterrupted one on one bonding time on a rocking chair, while Camille got cleaned up and took a short nap. It was fun seeing him calm down and take his first nap in this world. We're so excited to be parents. I always thought it was so cliche how new parents talk about how spiritual the experience it was, but now that I've been through it, I feel like I had the most spiritual experience of my life today. We love you Baby Lincoln Here's some pictures and videos for enjoyment.
