  • Kim

    August 11, 2006 at 11:27 am

    Oh my God, he is gorgeous! Since I just had mine, I’d probably get in trouble for saying he’s the most beautiful baby ever. But since she was a girl, I’m pretty sure I can get away with saying the most beautiful baby boy ever! Congratulations – I am so glad you finally get to bring him home!

    Is it possible to hear “Ohmygod! He’s so gorgeous!” too many times? I’m guessing not. so:

    Ohmygod! He’s so gorgeous!

    Congrats to you & D! Just think, this time last week you were in the midst of the longest labor known to man. And here you are now with a gorgeous li’l tike, poop and all. Love him!

  • undercover celebrity

    That sweet little peanut needs a Lacoste polo asap!

  • don't call me ma'am

    August 11, 2006 at 9:41 pm

    What can I say/type that isn’t already here? I actually “Ohhhh!”-ed out loud. What a beautiful child.

    Relish every single minute you can with him. People will tell you over and over how quickly it goes by… the full impact of which will not hit you until you realize he’s a senior in high school. Congrats again!

  • LVGurl

    August 11, 2006 at 10:27 pm
