Baby X is born today!

Today was the day. When we woke up we didn't know it, but it was! Everything went exactly as we had hoped, and we are now parents to a bouncing baby boy! Kirsten ended up having a C-section as we expected, but here 1.5 blocks from our house. Her water broke naturally, and we walked down and had our new baby boy at 4:45pm PST. He is 9lbs, 12.5oz, and 21.5" long. Grandpa and Grandma Cassingham are watching Dominic at home as we speak, and already brought him down to see his baby brother. No names yet, but we're thinking of a few like:
  • Michael Knight Tighe
  • Perignon Champagne Tighe (to match his brother Dom--thanks, Aunt Jenny!)
  • Walker TexasRanger Tighe
  • Chad Nuevedoce Tighe
More news soon!

Michael Knight Tighe....I like that one. Do they make talking strollers that push themselves? Congratulations from the Jetton/Emersons!

Erik and I are voting for Michael Knight...in the event you don't use it, could we use for our little guy's name??? He'll be here in September. Missing you on Perry Street. Carmen & Erik
