He's here!

Kellen Peter Muirhead arrived 12:07 am Monday, Feb 20. He was 8 lbs, 3 oz. What a long day Sunday was. I thought they were going to send us home again, but they said I was 3 cm finally and would admit me. The nurse said its usually 1 cm an hour. Since it was 2 days for 2 cm we thought it was going to be a long week! I guess Kellen was ready to come though as it wasn't long before I was trying to grasp the reality that I had a son! I don't even feel like I can write about the experience yet. It's all so unreal. Besides, Kellen is going to wake up at any moment to be fed yet again. Just wanted to put out a picture. Maybe later tonight I'll share some thoughts and more pictures. Oh, yeah, Ian did great. He stayed on his feet the whole time and surprisingly enjoyed the amazing experience.

Gorgeous, gorgeous and a good strong boy I'm sure. We like them like that ;) For what it's worth, I was sent home to "relax" after going up to the hospital in the wee hours of the night and mom was with us. She didn't complain either. You just never know! Congratulations! You are super and in for the ride of your lives!!! Thanks for sharing. Rub Ian's head for me and tell him we send our love ;)

Congratulations Ian and Janet! I rejoice with you in your addition to your family of Kellen Peter. My younger brother's name is Eldon Peter and I wonder if there is a connection because my parents and the Pete Muirhead family were neighbours in Ongre a couple of years before Peter was born. Anyway, it is a moot point but interesting. We love you guys.
