And it's a....

...BOY!


Lincoln Buckley Carter
born on Feb 19th at 6:29 pm
7 lbs 8 oz
19.5 inches

He surprised us by:
1) being a boy
2) coming pretty quickly
3) having an average sized head
4) actually coming out with some hair

I promise a full report to come soon with pictures & the whole story. For now we're just snuggling the little guy & hunkering down as a family to get to know this new addition to our family.

Thank you to everyone for your kind well wishes, love, and tons of support.We, and now Lincoln too, couldn't be luckier to have so many awesome people in our lives.

Congratulations! He's adorable and you look fantastic.

For your sake, I'm glad he's here. But, I have to say that I'm a little disappointed that he didn't hold out for another 9 days. I really want to know someone with a kid whose birthday is Leap Day. ;)

So fun.
How was it not knowing? Was it as exciting as you thought it would be? Would you do it again? Can't wait to read the story.

Congratulations to you! You know, the 19th is also my birthday, and I have had a wonderful, tumultuous, adventurous, and rollicking life so far (I just turned 39)...so may this day be auspicious for little Lincoln, and may his life take him fantastic places and to interesting people....
