Henry Finn Brazelton was born at 1:27 PM on Sunday, February 18, 2007 weighing 9 lbs. 2 oz. and measuring 20.5" inches.
Incidentally, his head measured a little more than 14" inches around. A "normal" baby has a head circumference of about 11" or 12". - victim of the famed "Brazelton Head Syndrome" or B.H.S. A condition in which you a born with a friggin' huge noggin. Seriously - it has it's own weather system!
Subsequently, medical professionals in attendance concur - THAT'S a big baby.
For those of you monitoring "Brazelbaby Watch 2007," the wait is over. Cami performed like a gladiator through 30 hours of labor including 5 hours of pushing before Henry was delivered by C-section on Sunday afternoon. I am beside myself with pride. Never once did she complain and she gave to me a beautiful baby boy. Both Mother and baby are doing great.
I know you may have been looking forward to a new comic here (and there will be one on Wednesday). But since this has been a moment that I've been building up toward and involving you guys in for several months, I thought it would be a nice thing to take this time and celebrate it with all of you as well.
Many thanks for your previous messages of support. We've saved every one of them and it means the world to us.
It's been a long ride for the three of us. I think we both got about 4 hours of sleep between us in the last 48 hours. Stay tuned, though. It's a great story and we're looking forward to telling it!
Tom, Cami and Henry
