    YESSS!!! He looks beautiful. But I thought he was supposed to be a girl.

    (Remember last year when Mrs. K had the miscarriage and you got all those posts that basically went: "we had a miscarriage too but our kid is now in grade school/in grad school/sitting in my lap as I type"? Now you're going to have a story like that too.)

      Yes!  We were like that too.  Come to think of it, the timing was almost the same too.  We got pregnant in September, had a miscarriage in late October, pregnant again by January and a healthy baby girl born October 30, 1996.  It gave me great comfort to have so many of the people that I knew share that they too had had a miscarriage and went on to have a healthy pregnancy.  It somehow made having a healthy baby seem even more precious.  
      Kos, your baby is beautiful.  Don't worry too much about sleep.  Things will settle down a bit by the end of the 3rd month (usually).  I have two kids now, age 7 and almost 5.  They definitely change everything.  It's a humbling and worthy experience to have your life be about something other than yourself.  We wish you all well.  Kiss your baby.
