Gareth Joshua Krebs

For those of you who do not know, Katie and I’s second child was born last Wednesday, July 20, at 2:14 pm. Weighing in at 7 lbs 11 oz and at 20 3/4ths inches, Gareth is already a speed demon.  We arrived at the hospital around 12:30 pm, Katie having had inconsistent contractions for most of the morning, she went into to full fledged labor at 12:45 and Gareth was born at 2:14.  For those of you a bit slower at math that is 1 hour 29 minutes. For those of you who haven’t had kids or aren’t familiar with labor, a “normal” labor with a second child is between 6-12 hours.

Katie did amazingly well.  I am always amazed by how well Katie handles things.  Not because I doubt her, but because I can’t imagine be able to do the things she does.  Goodness knows if she has survived this long being married to me she is a saint, but she is such a champ. Thanks for your prayers.

  1. Katie is awesome. You’re not too bad yourself, but you’d rate a little higher on the awesome scale if you included a picture in this post. 😉 Probably garner a few more comments, too. Just sayin’.
