Introducing: Jansen Bridges

September 3, 2010 at 7:30 am 50 comments

So I’m not going to do a full update because I’m at the hospital and it’s currently midnight and I’m tired. I’ve finally calmed down from the craziest day and a half of my life and I’m ready to sleep. At leastΒ for a couple hours until they bring Jansen in for a feeding, or until one of the billion nurses come in to check on me or take my blood pressure or something.

I figured you wouldn’t mind that I keep it short as long as I show you a couple pictures of little Jansen. We have several million pictures but these are just a couple from my cell phone. They aren’t the best quality but he’s so cute that it doesn’t really matter.

Precious? Yes.

He was born at 1:37am on September 2. He weighed 7lbs. 14 oz. and was 20 inches long. He’s totally not a bobble head like we expected. In fact, he’s quite perfect.

I’ll have more pictures and details next week. Thanks for all of your comments, emails, tweet, etc. etc. etc. You guys are awesome!

    I hope you are taking advantage of the hospital stay and getting some rest. I love you so much and I can’t wait to meet Jansen.

    Love from Alice….
