Drum Roll Please!

OK OK so I had about 3-4 posts neatly lined up in my head all planned for those wonderful days that I would be off work waiting for Baby Koi to arrive and Lily was off at Mimi's house preserving her day care schedule. These posts were just one item among a whole list of "stuff to do with my new found free time before we have two children". Well I had my last day of work on Thursday, May 7th and woke up Friday May 8th ready to go and....


Baby Koi decided he had his OWN list and opinions on what was going to get done when. And yup, we can drop the s/he business now, cuz it turns out Baby Koi is a BOY!. So without further ado:

We are all very excited to announce the birth of our new baby boy:

Quinton Daniel Man-Hong Wong
And since that's kind of a mouthful, you can call him Quinn :)

Quinn arrived 2 weeks early (the day after Becky's last day of work!) on Friday May 8th at 3:36PM at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Brighton. He was 6 lbs 8 oz and 19 1/2 inches long - just slightly smaller than his sister. For those interested, his birth story will be available here, eventually - well as soon as we figure out how to pay attention to a toddler and meet the needs of a newborn at the same time.

In the meantime - we've put some more pictures here:

Quinn's name has all sorts of connections/meaning behind it. Quinton was picked out by Lily - when given 3 choices she picked Quinton every time. It is also the middle name of Becky's paternal Grandfather. Quinn is also named after Becky's maternal grandfather, Daniel. Man-Hong was chosen by Gordon's parents and is Quinn's Chinese name. He shares the "Man" syllable with Lily and their two cousins. "Hong" means prosperous and reflects the hopes/blessings of his paternal grandparents for him to have a life rich in love and happiness.

Becky and Quinn are both doing well. Lily is trying to figure out what's going on and Gordon is home for a couple of weeks to help us keep it all together!
