Its a BOY!!! (try to act surprised)

Early this morning, or late afternoon if you were in China, we welcomed into our family our newest little one.  Lukai Paul* YanBing Berzenji was greeted into our family by his mother, older brother BigD and a small army of friends and government officials.
He weights about 40 pounds, and stands almost 3 feet tall.
The "delivery" was looooooong (well over 12 months) and at times, painful.  But at 40 pounds, what did you expect.

Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties, and a certain laptop which appears to enjoy making my life miserable, I have no pictures of our latest bundle of joy.  Once I get some photos of our new baby, trust me, I will be posting them for the world to see.  It's what we proud Dads do.

And yet, I keep sitting here... staring at the computer screen... as if that will somehow make the pictures show up that much quicker.

* == Paul is Lukai s middle name - after Grandpa Paul on the Wife's side!  Surprise Grandpa Paul!  We love you and you mean to the family!!!  From taking BigD fishing to showing SeniorK how to make Wine (which really, I'm not sure it was a great idea teaching a 12 year old how to make wine, but that's for a different conversation.  :-) ) and all the love and support during our Adoption Process - you are a blessing to the family and we love you!

    (Biology textbooks will tell you the mammal with the longest gestation period is the elephant. Don't believe it; these days, that particular title belongs to the parent trying to adopt from China...!)
