Unto Us A Son Is Given

The youngest Darwin addition arrived, like the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, in his own time, which turned out to be 9:46 AM on Christmas Morning.


William Oliver weighs in at 9lb 4oz making him the most weighty Darwin yet. He and MrsDarwin are doing well and resting up.

Congratulations!! Rest well, MrsDarwin :) And Merry Christmas to all of you - that Christmas present is going to be hard to top!

(and no, I haven't been checking back for baby pictures - just hit refresh to re-enjoy Darwin's Santa post, and got lucky!)

I love that his first Christmas hat fits. I tried squeezing Marian into one and it was so-so.

Christmas baby! Lucky boy -- every year some kind of party but always off from school, not to mention always getting a say in how Christmas is celebrated.

Congratulations to all of you, and best of wishes into the new year!
