Raymond Scott

Mary and (not)Frank welcomed baby Raymond Scott this morning at 8:03. He weighed 9 lbs even and measured 21 inches. Big guy. Mother and baby are doing wonderfully and are happy as can be. He's a beautiful boy and has been pretty much peaceful all day.

Here's a picture of him in the recovery room:


Not long after this picture, Gabi and the grandparents got to meet him. Gabi was bouncing off the walls all morning waiting to meet him and wanted to hold him as soon as she could.




Mary is tired, but feeling pretty well overall. She'll be home later in the week and will have lots to blog about to be sure. In the meantime, one last picture of Baby Ray all snuggled up and ready for bed:


Thank you all so much for your warm wishes. I'll print out the reply page tomorrow or the next day and bring it to the hospital for Mary to read and share with Raymond.
