It's A Boy!

As the lovely Miss Frazier mentioned in the comments below, we now have evened the family child count and have two boys. Peter Benjamin was born on Saturday and weighed 7 lbs 13 ounces and is 20 inches long. We decided 24 hours was long enough in the hospital and came home last night. All is going pretty well thus far. Anyone wishing to see all the photos can check out my flickr account.


How can you look so good at this point?


And that's a perfectly good name.

Bravo! Well played, madam! And my dad is Peter, so I'm definitely in favor of the choice.

Congrats all around.

I didn't mean to be a spoiler, but I was excited! He's very handsome (looks just like a newborn Adams). Congratulations; can't wait to meet him in person!

Absolutely handsome. Perfect name.

Congratulations. Everyone looks so happy. On the drive home from work today, you popped into my mind and I wondered if there would be news tonight.

My goodness. Last I saw you in photos, little Peter was inside! You look just as sweet here as in your pumpkin photos.

Take care and rest lots. So happy for your family...and I love the name too. I know the names of your two youngest and both are so pretty.

I had a feeling! I have plenty of little boy things I can send over too! Congratulations!

Looking good Jordana. I see that the lil wiggle worm is all ready to start work as walleye bait. :-) Conga rats to you and the clan.

Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful new baby boy.

A fellow blogger, Mary, sent me your way!

A little late to the congrats party, but I'll join in and congratulate you and Justin on the birth of PBj! Praise God for the addition of another precious life to your family.

Well, he could use a good Southern nickname (beside PBj) ... since his name is Peter, how about Bocephas?

Congratulations to the Adams! (Specifically you and Peter, but I think we can be generous and open that up to the rest of the clan)

He's a fine looking boy. He might not know it yet, but he's one lucky kid. I'm sure he'll have the rest of you whipped into shape in no time! ;-)

I'm definitely late to the party, but congratulations anyway. He looks wonderful, and I just can't get over how fantastic you look 24 hours after giving birth!!! Beautiful all the way around -- and a great name, too. Love to all.

Congratulations! You are BOTH beautiful!!!

Oh, Wow, Jordana...where has the time gone! Congratulations to you and your beautiful family. Peter is a sweetheart...you all must be so proud!
