Baby Madsen!!

Introducing baby Madsen! Barbie is my ultimate hero and did such an amazing job today. I was overwhelmed by the experience and so grateful and happy to be a daddy! I feel bad making a post before we give the tyke a name, but that's the way it is. He weighed in at 7 lb 11 0z and 21 1/2 inches long. He's struggling a bit to breathe on his own (they suspect some fluid in the lungs) so he's currently being watching in NICU, but is doing well and hopefully comes home with us on Friday. I am such a lucky man.
