On November 20th, 2008 at 07:56 (AM Eastern Time), my son, Malachi Alexander was born via C-section. He was 9lbs 9oz and 23 3/4 inches long. It's exhilerating and tiresome. Hopefully, he'll start sleeping at night pretty soon and I can get some time to write. I have found that reading is an easy way to stay awake during the day while he sleeps.
