Ethan Scott Perkinson arrived at Saint Lukes Episcopal Hospital, The Woodlands, by the grace of God and with the help of Drs. Christina Frome and Holli DenHartog, on 16 July 2012 at 10:00 AM sharp, weighing in at 6 pounds, 15 ounces (3147 grams) and 19.5 inches (49.5 cm)!
He was a lot smaller than his mama predicted but, as suspected, he's pretty much all head. That big head has a bit of hair on it - we're not sure yet how light (and how red) his hair will be, but we'll keep ya posted!
For the ob/gyn and pedi crowd: PROM (technically, PPROM) at 36w6d, C/S for breech, Apgars 9/9.
