Our Little Boy

We've been working on a pretty big project at our house for the past 41 weeks, and we finally decided that August 7th would be a pretty good day to meet the newest member of our family for the first time.  Damon and I went to the new Woman's Hospital in Baton Rouge at 3:30 a.m. Tuesday to be induced.  Damon wanted to snap one final picture of Watts in my tummy before he came out to see the world...
 By 10:44 a.m. most of the hard work was over and Watts Ray Pourciau was here!  Daddy tried to comfort him while the nurses were cleaning him up and getting his measurements...
 He was a very big boy!  He weighed in at 8 pounds and 10 ounces (2 ounces less than Stella) and measured 20.5 inches long (same as Cille.)  Daddy actually disputes the length measurement and claims that the nurse moved the tape when she measured him and she should have put him at 21.25 inches (which would be the same as Stella.)  I was preoccupied at that point and can't say for sure, but he did measure at 21.5 inches today in the doctor's office, so he either hit a big growth spurt or Daddy was right...
 When we finally made it to a regular room Mawmaw was the first one to hold Watts (after Daddy and Mommy, of course)...
 Mawmaw Shirley got him next...
 Even Aunt Lacie and the boys were there to welcome him...
 I'm not too sure that Tucker and Reid were very impressed by their new cousin...they played it cool...
 Daddy tends to be a little bit of a baby hog...
 Our sweet boy...
 Just like Stella, Watts was already picking up his head and looking around right after delivery...

 Pawpaw finally got a turn holding the little guy...
When we come back, Watts meets his big sisters!
