Aaron is here and beautiful!

As you can see from the banner, Aaron has arrived! He was born Monday, February 6 at 7:40 pm after 36 hours in the hospital and 12 hours of labor. Betsy's water broke Sunday morning, but labor didn't start until this morning.

Aaron and Betsy are both doing fine.

The stats:

Aaron was 50 cm, 3.07 kg, with a head circumference of 36 cm.

For those of you who are American (most of us!) That is: 19.7 inches, 6 lb 12 oz, and 14.2 inches.

Sorry, no pictures yet, I forgot to bring my card reader to the hospital! Will post some pics tomorrow!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Whitty!! And welcome to the world little Whitty! We wish you all the happiness in the world, and somewhat restful nights. :)

Congratulations! I guess Aaron will help you forget the defeat of your Seahawks to my Steelers. :)

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! We are so happy for you to have your new little baby to hold and snuggle, to listen to, and to care for. Glad to hear that Bets is doing well. Hooray! We are happy to have a new little grand-nephew! Thanks!

(And as for Beth, the Steelers fan, pride goeth before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.....I rooted for the Seahawks, too! It was a terrific Super Bowl, exciting game. Both teams performed very well! Danny, have you told Beth that you named your baby Aaron 'Seahawk' Whittaker, yet? :0
