The Best Christmas Present Ever!

After 21 hours of labor, failure to progress, and a c-section, Brennan Michael Riggs arrived at 4:13am on 12/23. He's 7 pounds even and 20 inches long.
Daddy couldn't be prouder!
Big sister Cate is in love with him (she kissed him and said "I love you, Brennan" without any prompting when she first met him).
And Mommy is happy to be a family of four.
A slightly more specific birth story to come later. For now, we're taking it easy and resting up for discharge this weekend. We might be home for Christmas. But I'm completely content and at peace if we're not. We've decided that Santa Claus comes the night mommy gets home. Thankfully Cate is young enough she won't know the difference.

Merry Christmas!
