You guys, thank you so so so much for all your wonderful comments over the last few days. I’ve been wanting to update but we’ve been stuck in the hospital forever — seriously, they would not let us go until late this afternoon, despite everyone’s robust and gaseous good health, we started thinking we were going to have to jailbreak our way out a window or something — and now of course we have some major not-sleeping to do, as well as overcompensating with Riley for this horrifying new arrangement (“Hey Riley, let’s go buy you a MOTORCYCLE! Unless you’d rather have your very own HOOKER?”).

More actual blog content to come soon. Until then, some squishy newborn photos:

HE IS BEAUTIFUL! But umm, how big are his feet, they look like they are already about a size 13 IN MENS! Dang! Also, why do you look so damn good in your post op pictures? I was all puffy and stoned looking! Not fair!

Oh Linda (and JB) he is too flippin’ cute for a newborn! And that is coming from a mom who just had a baby 3 weeks ago and doesn’t think any baby is as cute as hers. :) I hope you get some rest.

I’ll have you know that I am no longer allowed to ogle Dylan’s photos, as my persistent shrieks of “I want a baby!!” have terrified my husband.

But seriously, beautiful baby. Congrats and blessings to the whole family!

I predict Dylan and Riley will have much in common- they already share the same suspisions!

Good luck sleeping for, oh, the next 18 years or so.
Wishing you goodness and a speedy recovery

I can’t understand how I can be so emotionally invested in a family that I have never even met, but I sobbed tears of joy today for you and your beautiful family. Your sons are so handsome, and you look amazing even though you just had your guts cut out and put back in. Congratulations Linda, good luck with that whole sleeping thing.

The first thing I thought when I saw that 3rd picture is that he has your eyes! Then I scrolled down further and realize he has your nose! He looks so much like his mama! So cute!

Darn it, you made me all misty with Dylan’s gorgeous photos. The last two, in particular, made me wistful for those newborn days 6.5 months ago. He’s just beautiful!

Congratulations! JB looks just a little bit proud. I can’t wait to see pics of Riley and Dylan together.

Dylan: “Yes, I know I am totally awesome and monch-able and already cool in every way, but I have this feeling…hmmm…

SOMETHING IS SUSPICIOUS.”

He’s so beautiful! And that little hat is too cute…is that standard issue for your hospital? Much cuter than the generic blue and pink striped hat we got.

I’ve never seen a newborn who didn’t look like a wrinkly old man until these pictures of your newest.

Well done!

I would have commented earlier, but I too had a c-section this week + gave birth to Dylan’s future trophy wife. ;)

Here’s to our brand new babies + a quick recovery!

Dang. You know I hate it when people say this, so go ahead and punch me in my e-throat if you want, but he does look like you. I don’t think I’ve ever actually looked at any newborn pictures. Or at least I never paid any attention. My mother has told me numerous times that I looked like a prune when I popped out, but I guess I never fully appreciated how purple and wrinkly newborns are. I mean, I guess they’ve been holding their breath under water for nine months, so that sort of explains it, but still, wow.

I think in that picture with the two of you he may actually be practicing Riley’s patented suspicious face. And tell JB I’m again astounded by his natural manliness because it appears he wore a lumberjack shirt to his sons birth. Awesome. Get your strength back quick so you can get started on that new business extracting and bottling baby head smell. (not extracting the head, just the smell. I could already hear people getting pissed about that one, and I wanted to clear up any confusion)
