Baby Ryan is here!

Please welcome the newest member of Team Thompson, Ryan Paul. He didn't want to come out right away but, after 16 1/2 hours of labor, he finally made his appearance. Mommy and Ryan will be home Thursday morning and Claire and Jay have their welcome signs ready.

Stats for the stats crazy:
  • Born Tuesday, February 16, 2010 at 7:00pm at Stanford's Lucile Packard Children's Hospital
  • 8 lbs, 7 oz
  • 21 1/2 in

A special thanks to Stanford Hospital for understanding our insistence on a vaginal birth and for having the facilities and resources (like an on-site anesthesiologist) that allowed us to wait a little longer and avoid cutting him out via a caesarean section even when the playbook said otherwise. Mommy and baby are so much happier and healthier today as a result! And thanks for delivering all three of our kids!
