And Baby Makes Three

Brandon est ne a Toronto, Canada, le 18 juin (Fete des Peres en Amerique du Nord). Il pese 3.76 kg et il a 53 cm. Quelle journee incroyable!

Born on June 18, 2006 at Women’s College Hospital, in Toronto, Canada, Brandon weighs 3.76 kg and is 53 cm long (8 lbs 5 oz, 21″ long). What an amazing day!

Brandon Has Arrived!

C’est commence le samedi matin, 17 juin. Ensuite, vers midi, toute l’equipe c’est deplace vers centre ville, ou Deborah passe du temps au jardin d’une amie.

It all started on Saturday morning, June 17th. The caravan arrived downtown around noon, where Deborah put a new spin on Labouring in the Garden.

Vers minuit: encore un voyage, ce temps ‘ci c’est a l’hopital. Mais Deborah ne laisse pas trop a faire pour l’equipe medicale, malgre qu’ils etaient tres gentil!

Around midnight, the entourage moved over to the hospital, where these nice folks got all excited, but unfortunately, Deborah didn’t give them much to do 🙂

Enfin! Dimance apres-midi a 12h56 (GMT -5), Brandon arrive! Et, ce s’est passe tres vite!

Finally, on Sunday at 12:56 Eastern Daylight Savings Time, Brandon arrived, and very quickly too!

Le meme soir, Deborah apprend de nouveaux competences… pour tout arranger comme faut!

That evening, in a quiet room, Deborah learned some new skills – including making Brandon feel at-home in a swaddling blanket.

Et, bien sur, loin d’ici le papa heureux marche sur l’aire…

And we know there’s a happy papa walking on clouds out there, far away… 😀

    Deborah, As I understood the due date was June 2nd I’ve been going only mildly crazy wondering what was happening there. I had a momentary period of clarity this afternoon and thought to check the blog and THERE HE IS!!!! I’m so proud and so overjoyed and am sitting at my desk crying like a fool all by myself. I’ll hope to call you sometime but know this is a crazy time and so I wanted you to have my love and good wishes. The kids are in Disneyland til Friday but I’ll be showing them the latest addition to your family quite proudly the moment they get back. Love to your family from ours. xoxo

    Hey Deborah! You DID IT! Your photo shows how truly happy you are. Funny – when I see a new family, I get all choked up inside – just knowing all the wonders you are about to experience. Your Mom(s) too! Being a Grandmother is truly the best experience any woman will have. I didn’t know how much love I was capable of until I had grandchildren.. Like the song says “It’s a whole new world….”
    Congratulations to all. Keep well.
