Announcing the Arrival of...

A Star Is Born
At yesterday's appointment, Dr. Murray told us that I am not showing any signs of going into labor. Baby Peanut is estimated to weigh over 9 pounds and our doctor doesn't feel that I will be able to delivery him safely at that size. So, he scheduled a c-section for Saturday morning. The fact that his birthday is 11/1 is neat because one of my best friend's twins have the same birthday :)
Baby Peanut has now arrived! He was delivered at 8:21 a.m. on Saturday, November 1st. He weighed 9 pounds 14.2 ounces and was 21 inches long. We are finally announcing his name, Michael Garrett Meunier. We are doing fine :) I am glad we had the c-section. Before the doctor weighed him, the anesthesiologist whispered in my ear that she thought he might be 11 pounds! The one thing I will never forget is the sound of his first cry :)
