Welcome Owen!

I’ve had a wonderful time getting to know Cam and Melissa‘s new son, Owen Matthew Bahan, aka Kid 2.0 🙂 He was born this past Wednesday morning. After receiving a midnight phone call, I headed over to the Bahan residence. At the time of the call, contractions were still 12 minutes apart. We hung out and watched TV, until, around 2am, it was time to head to the hospital.
Joseph was already in bed; as labour-sitter, all I had to do was go to sleep 🙂 Woke up at 7am to Joseph wandering into my room and asking where mommy and daddy were. That didn’t last long, though. I got him on the potty and dressed, and downstairs we went. “Cars” on the TV; I warmed up some milk, which he downed readily; I got ready; fed him some oatmeal and lo and behold, at about 8:30, I got a phone call inviting us to the hospital.
Owen is a cute kid! Holding him I remember why I’m squeamish about babies. They’re freaking tiny! Joe seems like a giant next to him. But what I thought was really amazing was the way Melissa was up and about so soon after labour. That girl is crazy — she was up out of bed and and holding two two-year olds within a few hours of giving birth. That’s strong stuff.

Went over to Cam and Melissa’s with Louis and Tori last night to visit Owen, and the bruising on his face has reduced considerably. He’s looking healthy and happy. Still trying to figure out who he looks more like, Cam or Melissa… I suppose we’ll know in a month or so.
All my best to you, Owen, and to your parents too. 🙂
