Benjamin Alec finally graced us with his presence yesterday afternoon, following a 2-day long induced labor and subsequent C-section (phew!).� Mother, father and baby are all doing well despite their excruciating exhaustion.

Congrats to new parents, Sara and Shawn - you two were definitely troopers!� Ben clocked in at 8 lbs., 11 oz. and 21.5 inches long at 2 weeks late.

Now for a look at the handsome little fellow ...

Patiently Awaiting the Arrival of Baby K

James' brother and sister-in-law headed to the hospital yesterday to induce labor.� Poor Sara was almost 2 weeks overdue, and it seems Mr. Baby K (for their last name) was getting a little too comfortable in his crowded little motel room.� Although it seems like it was a little slow going at first (apparently they spent last evening playing cards and eating hospital food), there has been no word from them yet today, so we're wondering if things are starting to move along.

In the life of Emmett, there's not too much exciting going on this week over here.� He seems to have a runny nose, so his nickname of "SlobberPuss" has slowly been evolving into "SnotterPuss."� His Halloween costume came in the mail the other day, and it fits him perfectly!� We can't wait for all of you to see him in it!

Other than that, we've basically just been waiting for the exciting news of Baby K's debut.� Hopefully by the end of the evening I'll be able to update this post and announce the news of his arrival!
