    Hi everyone--just a quick note to let y'all know that Friday night, at about 7:30 PM, Melissa and I welcomed our very own creation into the world.

    It was quite the event, but I stayed conscious and in control of my digestion for the entire time, and we're all very proud of that. Melissa was AMAZING--I'm so proud of her. Due to a few things, she ended up not getting an epidural until 11 hours into a 12-hour labor. She was amazing. I think I already said that.

    The baby boy is also amazing, of course, and doesn't have a tail or anything, but is my son nonetheless. He was 7 lbs 3 ounces, and 19 1/2 inches long. We named him Miles Benjamin Rollins, and he's just perfect. Melissa and I are both people who have made snide comments about non-cute babies, so we were really expecting a jacked-up looking kid, but he's wonderful. He has a cute little squeak (like his brother Rubber Duckie) when he's winding up to a cry, and we're still learning about how to feed him, diaper him, etc.

    We came home today, and I wanted to let y'all know about him earlier than this, but I was too tired the other night when I stopped home to have a shower and nap.

    That's about it. Everyone's safe, everyone's healthy. And now we're sleepy.

    Welcome Miles!!!

    Congratulations to all three of you!

    Hope you get some rest and have nice thoughtful friends and family who will stop by with hot meals, do your dishes for you, and leave you alone to get aquainted with your new son.

    Congratulations Quinnnnnn & Mellisa !

    Miles looks like a cool dude (from the pics in the email) - very well done to you both !

    Anyhow god bless to him, don't say the word 'brother' around him too much when talking to Rubber Duckie or he might have dreams about growing a beak and learning to quack !!! ;-)

    Take care, and remember that babies like to eat Fisher Price Little People !

    I'm so happy for all three of you! Miles (what a great name, by the way) is so lucky to have parents like you and Melissa. I'm so glad that everything went smoothly and that everybody is healthy. Tell Melissa that we're thinking about her.

    Once again, congrats, my cross-country twin. Be sure and tell li'l Miles that his Uncle Byron can't wait to visit him! :D Hours of babysittin' with "Fraggle Rock", "Mama's Family", "The Muppet Show"...I'm ready to pack my bags and head to Utah righty-right now.

    And just think---in about 8 years or so, you'll get to introduce him to the wonderful, fantastical world of Narnia . . . oh boy, oh boy . . .

    And yeah, he actually is cute---y'all lucked out! ;)

    Thanks to everyone for the congrats--two nights with very little sleep later, and he's still perfect, and we LOVE him. He's very VERY cute, and we've had a pretty much constant stream of admirers stopping by to adore him. Some of them bring presents, some bring food--our only rule is that they have to say how wonderful he is, or we kick them out.

    That and at 9:00 PM, everyone gets the boot. Maybe earlier tonight. Mommy and Daddy (that's SO weird!) are sleeeepy.

    Warmest congrats to both of you!

    My sister just had her second kid a couple of weeks ago as well. Looks like we've both got a lot of work to do -- i.e., Muppet indoctrination? ;)

    Congrats again,
