welcome to this world...

HARLAN EMORY DOEG, born March 7, 2007 weighing in at 7lbs 5.3oz, 19 inches.
this morning at 4:02am, this little boy came out of my stomach. the labor, was, um...let's just say, 'intense'...natural childbirth is no joke...i still can't believe i went through with it. sincerest thank yous to everyone at the cambridge birth center, my mom, and of course, my loving and dedicated husband, who was by my side for the entire labor and delivery...without whom i would have surely lost my mind.

I'm not sure, but it looks like he has an emo expression on his face.

Just kidding. Congratulations (from Dublin)! He's gorgeous

Welcome to the world, Harlan-you look very much like your mommy.

(and yes, natural childbirth is very intense-actually gets worse w/ the 2nd one-but there is nothing more empowering! Be proud!)

that's the best looking hours-old kid I've ever seen. now as long as you don't turn him into a hippy all will be well!

and let me know when I get to come give him his tiny French present.
