Default It's official. I'm a dad!

Connor Griffin Butler was born last night at 7:51pm. We were going to have a scheduled c-section tomorrow morning, but her water broke yesterday as she was leaving from work, so we had to move it up. Both are doing well, but Connor has a hemangioma (benign tumor) on his left leg. They are common in infants and usually go away on their own, but his is larger than normal so a specialist is going to look at it. Here are a few pictures:

Me and my boy:


The three of us (Paige wasn't allowed in the recoveryroom):

OMG he is so freaking cute! I miss the newborn phase, my baby is almost 7 months now. They grow so fast so treasure every moment. Make sure you help mom by taking the baby and letting her sleep!
