Latham Patrick Copeland

The cutest little boy in the world was born on April 8, 2012! Adam and I are absolutely thrilled. Latham is a family name from Adam's side and my dad's name is Patrick, so that's how we came up with his name. We are calling him Latham...that should make him unique in school!

It's been exhausting thus far, but I can't blame it solely on Latham. Although he came only 4 days before his due date, he is big and healthy. He weighed 8 lbs, 2.9 oz and was 19.5 inches long. He eats well, and sleeps fairly well, and likes to use his lungs to voice his displeasure over things. :) But it's pretty great. Sadly, though, I could have used a bit more time to grade. I still have a bunch of papers and some more classes to run. Some people in my department have helped, but I still have a pile of things to do. I so wish I had time to just devote to Latham, but it'll be okay. I also need to write blog posts about the end of pregnancy, my delivery (no gory details, I promise), our house, the nursery, and a ton of other things. However, I'll just try to be patient, finish the end of the semester, and use my free time to enjoy my son.

In the meantime, here are some pictures of the little Copeland angel.
