It's a...BOY!!

Luke Anthony Eggemeyer was born January 8th at 1:13pm! Mr. Luke decided to come 3 weeks early...but honored his father's wishes and wasn't born during the Cotton Bowl. Since Dr. B had told us early in the week that I was dialated to 4cm - we knew that it would be soon. So sure enough - Saturday morning at 5am I started having contrations and we left for the hospital at 8:30. By 10:30 I had my epideral (thank goodness - because my contractions were intense) and I was at 6cm. By 12:50 - the doctor had me start pushing... and a few minutes later Luke was born! :) He weighed in at 7 Ibs 2.5 oz and was 19 3/4 inches long. He was nameless for the first few hours of his life - but we finally decided on Luke Anthony - power saints!
Claire has been so great with Luke - she wants to hold him every time he eats. She is pretty patient, for a 2 year old. When we were brainstorming what to name him - we asked Claire what she wanted to name him - her response was "Ohhh baby". So he was "Ohhh Baby" for a while. But now she calls him Baby Uke - "L's" are hard to say...
Here are a few pictures from the hospital.
