Ricky has arrived!!!

See what can happen in just a week?

Richard James aka Ricky
March 6, 2008 8:50PM ET
7 lbs 19 1/2 in.

You are so loved!

More details will be posted at a later date. Right now, I am resting (at least as much as he will let me) and recovering at the hospital. We are also working on mastering the art of breastfeeding.

And for the record......this is definitely the most amazing feeling in the world.
