Look at our perfect baby!

Fionn Martin Gandalf Borgersen. August 20, 2007, 10:52am. 8lbs, 8oz, 20 1/2 inches.
Mom and baby are doing fine ... Sinead's recovering from the C-Section, and the docs say "wow, you have a high threshold for pain!" Fionn's sleeping in the nursery so Mom and Dad can snooze a bit, and Dad can head home to upload photos.
Reality really didn't sink in for me until I was looking eye to eye with MYSELF at 20 1/2 inches. Well, almost. He got Sinead's nose and chin (we think, we're still debating that) and a massive Mc Donnell baldy head (it's a blondish-red peach fuzz, we think he may be a strawberry blond in a few years), but those eyes and that stocky chest are definitely lumbering nordic Borgersen.
Martin after his grandfather, and the line of Borgersen men to share that name.
Gandalf because we had to pay homage to Tolkien after 9 months of calling him "the Hobbit". And the second middle name worked for J.R.R. And let's face it, "Bilbo" just wasn't gonna work, so we went all the way.
