Nothing like a marathon

Most people who follow this blog probably already know by now that Fig has arrived. Fig was born on August 12th at 1:19 in the morning, weighing 6 pounds, 12 ounces and measuring 19.5 inches long. We named him William Miles Raguet-Schofield. He came 9 days early and 2 days before my 30th birthday. He is wonderfully healthy and happy; he loves to eat and sometimes likes to sleep, but usually not at nighttime.

Someday I will write the whole story of his birth, which ended up involving a lot more drama than I’d hoped. Giving birth was absolutely nothing like running a marathon. It wasn’t even like running a hundred marathons back to back. Writing the story may take me a while; I don’t really have the time to get anything done these days. I’m not even finished with the thank-you notes from our last baby shower.

Rob has posted a lot of pictures on his blog and flickr account; here are a few of my favorite ones.

Thanks for reading.
