And So We Were All Wrong . . .

It's a boy!

Ronald Carlton (we'll call him Carl)
Born September 29th at 11:29 a.m.
Weight: 6 lbs., 11 oz.
Length: 19.5 inches.

His early arrival was due to a placental abduction (or something like that) and an emergency c-section. But QOC and D2 are doing quite well, and we're just thankful.

QOC will fill in all the details on the exciting time, and God's miraculous working later. All went well except for an encounter between yours truly and a rather unsympathetic sheriff on the way to the hospital.

A tiny version of Ronald on this planet. Now THIS I have to see.


Jill Sherman (friend of Ronald Sr.) said...

Welcome little Carl!

the Joneses said...

Congratulations! And thank the Lord that everything went well despite the emergency.

Since the Joneses both predicted a boy, do we get a minor baronetcy at least?
