He's here!  

Welcome to the world, Daniel Anthony Pritchard! He was born Sunday, January 9th, weighing 7 pounds 10 ounces. He's adorable, healthy, and very cuddly. Mike too this picture just minutes after he was born, when I held Danny for the first time. We are already smitten with our little blond cherub.

Yesterday was Daniel's birthday, and today is Mike's. My family had a birthday party for the two of them tonight in my hospital room, where they took this picture of us. Happy birthday to both of my beloved men!

I will share more pictures after I get home and settled. In the meanwhile, I'm resting comfortably and loving all the cuddles with the baby.

Mike and I are so touched by the outpouring of love and support from all our friends near and far. Thank you for cheering for us - every message has been cherished.

Congratulations! Daniel is a handsome, darling little boy. :) I know you both will be such wonderful parents to him. I can't get over the fact he's got blond hair. Little toe head--ADORABLE!

Congrats again. Charlotte, take it easy. Don't try to do too much. Let that wonderful family of yours dote on you for the next week or so. You just enjoy your sweet angel baby. :)

Congratulations! With such loving parents, I'm sure he'll be a very happy boy (and probably a naturally great photographer, too!).
