Announcing my son's birth

I was six days overdue when I went into labor on Easter Sunday at about 8:30 AM. My son was born 7 1/2 hours later. Everything went very well until his blood sugar levels began fluctuating early Tuesday morning (3/29), so we stayed in the hospital an extra day while they stabilized him with some supplemental feedings. We went home on Wednesday, March 30, and everyone is doing very well.
