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!
