Little Dude is Actually A Big Dude


Erick James
May 17, 2010
9 lbs. 1 oz
21.5 inches long






The short version- I huffed, and I puffed and blew the house down.

The long version requires greater emotional energy than I have to tell it right now. But he was born at the right time, in the right place, and perfect in every way.

He is perfect and looks a little hairy too! What a little miracle he is and you are officially my hero! I can't wait to see Scrunch with him, I'm sure she'll fill the role of big sister wonderfully.

He is too damn cute. Definitely a chunky monkey. I just want to squeeze him. I can't wait to hold him. Love and miss you all.

He certainly is a big dude! My mom told me about your AMAZING labor story. I am so proud of you - and amazed by your strength. I can't wait to meet both your kids in person someday.

I love the picture of his feet when he is being weighed. I also love seeing you in the background with your hand on your forehead. It was a big day. We are so happy for you all. He and David share the same middle name.
