Today was a very special day for me, but not nearly as special as it was for my brother Kevin and his wife Susan. Today, at exactly 8:34 a.m., they welcomed their first child into the world. His name is Connor and he’s the newest member of the Hall family, and the first grandchild for my parents.
I have 3 brothers, Kevin being the oldest (by 4 minutes, but still the oldest), so it is only fitting that the oldest is the first to have a baby. I’m so happy for Kevin and Susan, and I’m looking forward to getting to know the little guy.
Connor was weighed at 8.8lbs and 21 inches long, has a full head of hair and most importantly is healthy. That hair though, I couldn’t believe how much he had, it actually covers his ears a bit. I think he’s going to be a hockey player, why else would he be born with hockey hair?
As Robyn and I got to the hospital at 6:00, my parents were leaving as was my brother Brandon (Kevin’s twin). Brandon’s wife Courtney stayed, so she ended up in some of my photos. Susan’s parents and her sister showed up just before we left, so they got in some photos too.
Anyways here are some of the photos of Connor, taken when he was just 10 hours old:
