Hey! Check it out!!

So, after Jen's doctor decided to induce her on Thursday morning at 6:00, Swanny Jr, decided to take matters into his own hands. After 3 hours of labor and 10 minutes of pushing, Jen delivered our newest bundle.

Here are the particulars:

Name: Adam Jeffery Swanson

Weight: 9lbs, 9 oz That's right, 9lbs, 9oz. For those keeping score, that's 1lb, 3oz bigger than Peanut was.

Length: 22.5in. Yes, he was 2in longer than his older sister.

Swanny Jr. and Jen are both doing great.

Enough of that, on to the pics!

Congrats again to all of you - I've been refreshing My Life With Dogs for the past hour waiting for this post!

Looks like Adam is starting life out just right - doing things on HIS term and not anyone elses! I'm dying to hear Peanut's reaction to her baby brother.

Welcome to life with two - buckle your seatbelts and get ready for the craziest, most wonderful ride of your lives!!!

Big hugs from all of us at OCH!

Whoo-hoo! HOW CUTE IS HE? Oh my word, what a little munchkin! I cannot believe that he was so big! Adam is absolutely perfect!

I agree with the mrs, I am looking forward to hearing all about Peanut's reaction.

Congrats to the entire family.

Adam you are a lucky little boy, you have great parents (who from the pictures, I can tell are already SO in love with you) and you have a GREAT big sister (who has been talking about meeting you for weeks)!

What a happy day! :)

Ahh, this takes me back. What a beautiful, healthy boy!

I love the pure, confused rage of a newborn. We never stray too far from that in life, with good reason.

OK, there's an elephant in the room (accurate choice of words, I assure you) and we might as well just put it out there, Greg:

My man Adam has testicles for DAYS! I'll have what he's having.

Adam (can I call you Ad-Rock, like that kid from the Beastie Boys), in about 18 years you're going to be swarmed by hot chicks. When that happens, remember this important rule: bros before hos.

Hey gang, I was going to acknowledge everybody who made a comment, but I found myself saying the same thing over and over. So, to everyone:

Thanks for the thoughts, love, and support.

He is very cute (so cute you just want to crush him).

Peanut WILL be a great big sister (which makes her sound like she's going to turn into some sort of giant, but I know what you mean).

Someone give literaldan an "Amen".

The girls from OCH can hang with us anytime.

Jen wishes she could go to the yoga conference as well.

Stay tuned for exclusice footage of Peanut and Swanny Jr.

Holy shit! Dad Gone Mad stopped by? Thanks Uncle Danny, "Bros before hos," is a life-long lesson everyone can enjoy.

You all are the best.
