Last night my friend Susan gave birth to her third little boy, Gavin Michael, at Feather River. He was 7 lb 14 oz, 19 1/2" long - tiny compared to the other two behemoths. She was due on 9/11 but thankfully was able to hang on for one extra day, but not so long that she had a baby on Friday the 13th. 
I stopped by the hospital after work this morning to visit with the wee little dimpled one. He had just fed so he promptly fell asleep in my arms. After about 30 minutes one of Todd's sisters, Polly, stopped by so I was able to pass the sleeping bundle off to her so that I could get some feeling back into my arms which are not used to carrying little babies. 
He was so good, never making a peep, just squirming in his sleep. Mom and baby are scheduled to come home tomorrow so the other two boys can practice playing big brother!

To put that in perspective, your hubby was 7lb 15oz and 22.5" long at birth.
