New Arrival

Introducing Daniel Joseph Giffone, born 7/25, 12:51am, 8 lbs. 0 oz., 21 in.

Mother and child are fine. Corrie was so fast that they didn’t even get a chance to get the epidural in, so she was all natural. We got the hospital at 10:15pm after we suspected that her water had broken. From there, contractions were so hard, close together and fast that the little guy didn’t have any chance of staying in there any longer. What a night!

The hospital wifi blocks Facebook, but I’ve attached a couple of pictures as a "preview of coming attractions" until I can get home. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.

    Ah, very kind of you to remember. Ours ended up beating yours, though ;-). Ella Grace actually came on 7/6, and thus far, she has been doing a very good job of introducing us to parenthood ;-).

    What a beautiful, beautiful baby! He is gorgeous! Boys rule! Congratulations, Benj and Corrie! Tons of wishes for great health, best of luck and lots of happiness to all three of you!


    PS. Corrie – you got lucky, girl. Just a couple of hours? I’m jealous. :))))))

    Corrie– You had it easy! I was in labor for 17 hours with my daughter and that was WITH the induction hormones! LOL! I told you that you’d be just fine. You look wonderful. ^_^
