Although I was due on July 11th, I decided to make an early entrance into the world. So...I was born on July 1, 2000 at 7:22 p.m. I weighed in at 7 pounds, 3 ounces and measured 20 and 1/4 inches.
I decided to make delivery a fairly short event and mom was in labor for only 9 hours. Mom also thanks me for being early given that I would have been much bigger had I arrived on time. Both mom and I are happy that I didn't get dad's huge head. (Ouch).
Mom and I can't say enough good things about the nurses at Newton Wellesley Hospital, especially Jane, Betty (the "Quick Stick"), Sherry and Kathleen. Thanks for all the help and support - we did it!
