And lo, the Kolter was Born.

A new Kolter is among us!

Tristan Kolter came into the world on January 12th at a weight of 8 pounds, 15 ounces with a shock of red hair. He held out about three weeks past the due date, so none of us win the betting pool. :P Induction proved impossible because the little bugger decided to rotate around and land feet first. A C-section was the only course; however, both mother and son are healthy and doing well (if a bit tired and worn out).

Rkolter will post later with more details after he and the rest of the family get some much needed rest. ^_^
When I was a child, I caught a fleeting glimpse out of the corner of my eye. I turned to look, but it was gone. I cannot put my finger on it now. The child is grown; the dream is gone. And I have become comfortably numb.

What a little troublemaker he is already!

Congrats, you three! Get all the rest you need (and maybe a bit more for the heck of it).

So that's what that cold shiver running down my spine was the other day.

Kidding! (it's just really freakin' cold here)

Congratulations to you, Kolters! :D

Congratulations! :D

And on that note: 8 pounds!? :o

Edit: actually, I guess that's really not big for a baby, now that I take the time to look it up. Shows how much I know about babies.

That's becoming pretty standard these days, actually. Babies keep getting bigger and bigger. My son was 9lbs 2oz.

Lil' Kolter's already causing trouble, I see. He wanted to hold out for as long as he could- either that, or there's something about that position that makes it take longer to start the contractions. Also, January 12th makes Tristan Monday's child, I'm trying to remember how the rhyme goes.

Monday's child is fair of face.
Tuesday's child is full of grace.
Wednesday's child is full of woe.
Thursday's child has far to go.
Friday's child is loving and giving.
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day (generally regarded as Sunday)
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay. (Think pre-1960s gay, as in meaning happy)

Anyhow, congratulations!

There's 18 posts, and I don't want my picture-post to be #19, so I'll post twice.
