I'd Completely Forgotten How Tiny Babies' Ears Are

Matthew Daniel FriedOkra arrived via C-section this morning around 9:00 AM. We're all fine and dandy if a little exhausted (understatement). He's darling - looks a lot like Bean as a newborn.

More later when I can hold my eyes open!

Y'all can subscribe to FriedOkra's feed here.
