Luke Patrick Kirby

I'd like to introduce the most perfect, precious baby in the world, my new nephew Luke!

Isn't he beautiful?? This little chunker was born last night, March 28. He is a whopping 8 lbs 11 oz. That's probably a big baby for most families... remember we're accustomed to 3 pounders... this guy is HUGE! Did you notice his chubby cheeks? How about his chubby arms? Look again. Precious.

He looks like such an angel... but this "little" guy gave my poor sister quite a hard time! After 14 hours of labor, and 2 hours of pushing (can you imagine??) Maureen had a C-Section. That wasn't an easy decision... and it wasn't an easy C-Section. The poor girl had quite a few complications. Very painful for her... and very stressful for her family! She is one tough mommy though! Little Luke is doing great and Maureen is recovering well.

Here is a picture of the happy family.

Luke and his favorite aunt :) Largely because I overfeed the little chunker! Maureen let me give him a bottle and I was so proud that I got him to suck it right down! No one told me he was only allowed to have HALF a bottle. My boys were only allowed 5 ccs when they were first born... I have no idea what an average newborn eats! 53 ccs later I declared Luke a great eater and watched my sister turn pale... oops!

Tell her congratulations!!! Sorry it was so traumatic. You look like such an excited happy skinny aunt! I'm glad you got to go. (And I would have fed him all of the bottle too and would have been proud of myself. Maybe that's why Isaac is so humungus.)
