So I guess I'll be changing my avatar now...

Carlin "Mister Kicky-Pants" Hitchens was born last evening and he's a happy, alert, rather trim and muscular (If Mommy does say so herself!) baby.

And while I wish I could say I went into a field and squatted and chewed on a leather strap as pain relief, I'm actually going to admit that I had a medically regulated high-tech birth because it was my health the docs were concerned with.

Long story short, after my usual 107/68 ish blood pressure skyrocketed to 150+/98 during a "routine" checkup, and I admitted to a daylong headache that wouldn't quit, the docs offered me induction or going home to have a stroke.

I expressed my concerns about wanting to avoid a c-section at every cost and that I was rather like "An Osmond being taken to a Stones party at Hef's mansion, escorted by Keith Richards himself," the docs and I agreed: They gave me a 20 hour slow pitocin drip. And then after 15 minutes of pushing, I had my son.

He's fine, and my BP is back to that to which I'm accustomed so we're good. And though it will be awhile until I'm threateaning people in my way at the gym, I'm already feeling a lot stronger.

Nothing like a little pitocin to get things moving along. My wife had to go the same way with our daughter.

Congratulations all around. :)

Thanks all!

We're just having the time of a lifetime over here, and we could not be happier.

We don't know who he most resembles... it changes by the light he's in, but it's fun to guess.

Wow, he is gorgeous!! Oh and Greg's suggestion if a bb, I dont know:) When my first grandkid was born, everyone told me to buy him his first set of KBs (aka rattles):) Either way, enjoy him and remember to sleep when ever you can;)

He does what Daddy calls his "Kung Fu Arms" in his sleep, and boy if it doesn't really look like he's hard at practice and actually throwing blocks and strikes! No punches... yet.

And while I am profoundly sleep deprived, I only regret not doing this sooner!

Thanks all, for your well wishes.

I haven't been this sleep-deprived since college, but I haven't been as happy either, so I guess it evens out.

Just 4 weeks now until I can get back to my lifting...
