Dean Paul Evans was born yesterday at 2:36pm at Evanston Northwestern Hospital. He weighed 6lbs 12oz and was 19 3/4" long. Delivery was by planned C-Section, and the surgery went normally through out. Dean started crying as soon as his head was clear of the incision, which is fantastic in any case, but even better considering the biggest concern was lung development. So far all tests have come back as normal and he got feeding and output figured out.
He's been a quiet baby for the most part and easily calmed when he does get cranky. We're hoping that continues for... oh, about 18 years. So far he's had visits from Grandma Paula and Grandpa Jesse, and from Cris and Steph Olson. We're very excited to have him here at last.
Dean was the name of Nicole's maternal grandfather, and Paul was the name of mine.
