It's a boy!!!! Elliot Ulrich Papczun, born at 9:02 am on Wednesday morning, July 15th. 7 pounds and very cute. Mom, Baby and myself are doing well and recovering nicely, although quite exhausted -- 17 hours of labor, 2 hours of pushing, and only 2 to 3 hours of sleep since the all night marathon. Kristy was amazing; we are all so incredibly proud, elated and overwhelmed by Elliot and of his coming into the outside world!
More later from Kristy once we get the internet working at the hospital or once we get home Friday afternoon (we think). I'm taking a quick break to post photos, then heading right back to the hospital -- when i left, Mom and Elliot were both tucking in for some nice afternoon sleep.
Patrick (and Kristy & Elliot)
