Wow, you all like a good ship party! Me too, and what a party.
Today Thomas Hawk came and shot a bunch of photos that are really precious.
Patrick has been carrying around our new Canon 5D and I predict he might give Thomas Hawk a run for the money! He’s gotten some awesome photos, we’ll get some up later so you can compare his photos with Thomas’. The kid has already started copying Thomas’ moves (machine guns the 5D, which takes up lots of memory cards very quickly. Milan has already had 8 gigabytes of photos taken of him. Damn, I remember when a gig of data storage was something only a huge corporation could afford.
Anyway, I’m beat and I had the easy job. I have a newfound respect for mothers.
Milan is spending his time in the special needs nursery because Maryam had a slight fever during birth. Turns out they are ultra paranoid about infections and so they are paying extra attention to Milan. Which means Maryam gets some very needed rest. Patrick and me are home now, back for more fun in the morning.
Another thing that has my attention on Maryam? Her epidural didn’t work very well. So, she gave birth saying it was like having a knife stuck in her and someone twisting it.
Some little known facts:
He was born at 2:24 a.m. this morning.
Weighed 9 lbs.
21 inches long.
Middle name is “William” after my dad’s name, pictured above.
We picked “Milan” because Maryam has been bugging me to take her to Italy for quite some time. When Milan showed up I told her “there goes your Italy trip for now.”
Anyway, we’re having a great time and thanks Thomas for the beautiful first-day images.
