Welcome Clark Kelley Wagner To The World

After a night of labor, Eva gave birth to Clark Kelley Wagner via emergency c-section at 7:07am February 9, 2008. He was 7 pounds 12 ounces and 20 inches long. His umbillical cord was wrapped around his neck and tied in a knot (like a noose), but he recovered quickly and he’s a healthy little boy. His mother is recovering well, too, and they are both enjoying a midnight feeding as I write this (on my Treo) at 4:45 am, less than 24 hours after he was born. What an adventure we’ve all begun.

UPDATE: There’s a few more pictures of Clark on the Eva’s family’s blog.

I’ll be posting a best of category once I can go through the 2 gigs of images I’ve already taken. ;)

UPDATE 2: See Eva’s class blog for more fun pictures of Clark Kelley.

    Congratulations Mark and Eva! Let the diaper changing begin!
    [TIP] – Open front of diaper slowly! A rush of cool air can lead to surprises!
    It WILL happen to you, too!

    Hooray for Clark’s arrival! My daughter Julia was born with the cord wrapped around her neck twice and in a knot and she was fine. Amazing how these little people get tangled up!
