(We pronounce his name with a long ‘a’: MAH-gglio.)

My contractions started at about 2pm on Saturday.  I called my mother (who lives in Michigan) at 3:30pm and firmly told her, “Buy your plane ticket.  I’m going to have this baby by midnight.”

Magglio was born at 1:00am Sunday morning, after 3 long and painful hours of pushing.  He was 9lbs, 4 oz!  Nice and fat and healthy!

He is beautiful.
