The Gadlet has arrived!
on 09-08-07 at 11:08 am, weighing in at 6 lbs and 13 oz.
After a 10 1/2 hour drug-free labor. Yep. You heard me. Drug Free.
Stewgad, Spousal Unit, and The Gadlet are all doing fine and are going to take an early departure from the hospital today so that they can sleep tonight without the distractions of a medical environment.
Full Gory Details (and yes, they are a bit gory) and some nicely anonymous infant photos to come.

oh wo! CONGRATULATIONS! That's very exciting, I hope you are feeling well and that you are enjoying that new baby smell!!!
Though, I confess this news is a bit disappointing, as my favorite part is robbed here in the blogosphere - I love to know the name...oh how I LOVE names. Give us a clue - Classic? Urban-Hipster Funky? Rap Star? C'mon -- give us a clue?
Just kidding - welcome baby, and congrats to you!

i've been an occasional lurker here for several months and, as a fairly new blogger, I now know that commenting is the better way. If there were ever a time to chime in, it's gotta be now -- CONGRATulations! I look forward to seeing the baby pics. Hope you're getting some sleep.
