He's heeeeere…

Alexander Blake Johnson was born at 3:04 a.m. on Saturday, November 19th, tipping the scales at 9 pounds 4.5 ounces, and measuring 22 inches long. When the midwife put him on my stomach it was the closest I've ever come to experiencing tunnel vision — he just went on and on and on. Baby is great, mother is still sore but the percoset helps (my friend Karen commented, “Wow, you're really druggin' it up…”), and father is over the moon.

The past week has brought a firstborn child, my 34th birthday, Thanksgiving with my divorced parents and Dad's fiancee. So y'all will have to excuse me while I go take a nap. 🙂

  1. Ha ha! I *totally* scooped you on my blog.
    And congrats again on the most rapid weight loss (what was it, 25 lbs in a day?) you'll ever have.

  2. Congratulations, Lynn. It all gets easier from here.
    I'm looking forward to hearing more about your little conqueror-poet's first few weeks in the world!

  3. Lynn, congratulations on Alexander Blake! I was really moved by your comment on Harvey Birenbaum's memorial article; I am sure Harvey is smiling from heaven. I wish you luck on this wonderful journey. Check out my blog sometime if you have a minute and want to–stregastories.blogspot.com (yes, I'm still working on the book, nearly finished now and am looking for an agent). Alexander is lucky to have such a wonderful mom–best, Joan McMillan (used to be Joan Barnett–changed back to my maiden name).
