Duncan joins the family

We've got a new member of the family!!! Meet Duncan Jack Phipps. He was born on May 4th @ 1:33 pm. Knowing that he had a big act to follow in Elsie, Duncan managed to top her birthweight by 3 oz., weighing in at a hefty 10 lb. 2 oz. (and 21 inches tall, with a head circumference of 34.5 cm). So far, after about 6 hours of life, we have figured out that Duncan's likes are napping and eating, and his only dislike is sponge baths.

Kristi did a fantastic job in labor, and needed only 15 minutes of pushing to deliver Duncan. They wasted no time in getting acquainted.

Jack opted to start immediately conditioning Duncan to be a fan of the correct sports teams.

Grandma Jan and big sister Elsie stopped by for a visit later in the day. Elsie was interested to see how Duncan would respond to a friendly poke on the nose.

After some initial shyness, Elsie eventually worked up the courage to hold her new little brother (just long enough for a photo).
