At seven pounds 8 ounces, 19.5 inches long, Logan David Evans proves our biggest baby, even though he came three weeks early. His arrival was so unexpected that he almost popped out in the car on the way to the hospital. When Lesli entered the hospital, she was complete and had him within ten minutes. The nurses delivered the baby, inasmuch as the doctor did not have time to get there. One tough woman, Lesli gave birth without anesthesia, despite the fact that she requested an epidural immediately upon arrival. No time for that! The fact that he came early combined with any lack of crying when he first came out scared me quite a bit. However, everything ended up just fine. Both he and mom are doing fine (even though Lesli has to have a root canal today; just one more proof that she is made of nails). We feel blessed to invite him in our home. Now we can refer to him as "he" and "him" instead of "it," or "fetus," or "unborn one." We enjoyed experiencing the surprise of not knowing his gender until birth (even though I peeked during an ultrasound and, therefore, had a pretty good hunch). Anyway, we cannot wait until family can get out to Texas to see us. Too bad we live so far away.
