The baby's here!!!!

So it's 1:36 a.m. on Friday, April 6th 2012 and I am in dreamland and DANGIT, my alarm goes off. I KNEW I cut it off the night before because I consciously made the effort to cut it off so I could sleep in and OMG it can't be 5:30 already, but wait - it's my phone, and it's RINGING! And it's my mom saying Jill is at 7cm and the baby is coming today! Holy Good Friday!! The baby is coming!

Welcome to the world, Maxwell Edwin McDonald. You arrived at 11:05 a.m. and are so-loved. I'm an Auntie again!!!

Here's our little 'glow worm'... weighed in at 5 lbs 4 oz and 19 inches long. He's a tiny boy!
Here's a close up of this cutie while his Auntie Mo was holding him! No one knew whether it was a boy or girl ..... or so we thought. Jill and Thomas knew from week 12!!! I was wondering how Jill would be able to NOT find out....and then how in the heck did she keep the secret?!

And this is him, one day old stretched out in his crib at the hospital. Jill and Thomas were able to take little Max home on Sunday. All is well. The Easter bunny did good for the Chumchal family this year!
And here is Max with his Auntie Mo. And if' you're wondering, Auntie Mo comes from my nickname, Jamo. :) I was introduced to Brody as Auntie Mo, and now that he's talking up a storm it's Mo Mo, but I SWEAR ONE DAY that 2nd "Mo" will be dropped! :) It's cute! He's such a sweetie!

So Max -  let's get this straight now - It's Auntie Mo & Uncle Bert!
