Day one - Welcome Will!

Will joined our family at 3:50 AM on Friday, June 13, 2008, weighing in at an amazing 11 pounds and 5 ounces.

Aside from our obvious excitement to meet the little guy Laurel's been carrying around for 9 months, the 13th of June seems an auspicious day for a few reasons:
  • In 1979, Lorne's Mom found out she was pregnant with him on June 13th.
  • Lorne's great-Grandma used to always make a trip to Reno on Friday the 13th, because it was her lucky day. When she got home, and people asked her how she did, it was always "I won a little, and lost a little."
  • As one friend pointed out (thanks Alysa!), he shares his birthday with Margaret Thatcher, Steve Buscemi and the Olson twins.
Welcome Will!

At 11 pounds, he weighs more than the Olsen Twins. Combined. And is far more handsome.

Laurel! Lorne! Congratulations!!! I am so sorry I'm so behind with this!!
