Oh Boy, Oh Henry!

I couldn’t be happier to announce that (not-so-)little Henry Seamus Nack–marvel of creation, California King, Little Brother to the Stars, & general delight to behold–sprang into the world at 2:47pm yesterday afternoon.

Mom & baby are doing great after a crazy-fast labor (end-to-end 20 minutes in the hospital!*), and big brother Finn is suitably intrigued** with baby “Goonie” (short for “El Segundo”). The big-little man bested his whopping bro’s marks, coming in at 9lb 12oz (what’s that, about 4 hectacres in Metric***?) and 21″. He and mom are chilling at the hospital while dad squires Finny around and runs sandwich-fetching missions.

Here’s a little gallery of the goings-on, and of course we’ll be updating the soon-to-be-renamed Finnegan Wakes as we bring our buddy home and learn to niño-juggle. Wish us luck!

I expect to be taking a little break from work-blogging, though I have a bunch of links set to publish on an automated schedule.

    Congratulations on your healthy (and big) boy! Life with two little boys is grand, I promise. Enjoy!

  • Eric — 11:32 AM on July 10, 2009

    Congrats! Great news. Enjoy what sleep you’ll be able to squeeze in! (But then you already knew that, right?)

  • Kenny McLean — 12:02 PM on July 10, 2009

    Congrats John and Mrs John.
    Let the good times roll.

  • Mel — 12:09 PM on July 10, 2009

    Ah, now you are blessed with THREE joyous beings in your life!
    But HECTACRES? No, no, no. If I am doing the math correctly, 9lb 12oz converts to 7823 furlongs per fortnight… [:-)

  • Simon Brown — 12:13 PM on July 10, 2009

    Congratulations, John, excellent news. Life’s going to be even fuller from now on :-)

  • Joseph — 12:39 PM on July 10, 2009

  • Mark Alan Thomas — 2:12 PM on July 10, 2009

    Congratulations! I’m sorry you didn’t hit your 12:34:56 goal (though I still think 11:11:11 would have been just as cool).
    I guess you’ll have to just keep making babies until you get it right.

  • Pedro Estarque — 3:54 PM on July 10, 2009

    Congratulations John, to you and your family!

  • Lavonne — 4:14 PM on July 10, 2009

    I was just thinking ‘When is John going to have the next baby?’And then I read the blog.
    Congratulations to the Nack family! Everyone looks great. I think Henry has your eyes John. Thanks for sharing with us.

  • sam — 4:17 PM on July 10, 2009

    congrats!

  • Klaus Nordby — 4:48 PM on July 10, 2009

    Hearty congratulations, John & Margo!!! But no, “9lb 12oz” is 2 parsecs and 7 joules.

  • Nat Brown — 5:00 PM on July 10, 2009

    Ah. I can finally look forward again to those sleep deprived blog posts you used to put up at 3 AM after Finn came along.
    But excuse me. I almost forgot.
    Congratulations!
    :-)
    Nat.

    Henry is a beautiful baby (and that’s my professional opinion as a Pediatrician). Have a wonderful time with your wife and your boys. I have enjoyed your blog for a long time.
    Marty
