Our second son, Callum Oliver Shipman.

Logan's baby brother was born Monday night, April 19th, at 10:14pm PDT. He weighed 7lbs, 12oz and measured 19" long. Though he's smaller than Logan was, he seems so much chunkier! I think it's the short Chinese/Mexican genes that make him appear so much heavier than he really is. ;-)

I thought I'd hold off posting about Callum until we actually had some time to decompress once back home (we came home this afternoon), and allow me the time to put my thoughts together on his labor and delivery. But, I'm realizing that may not happen soon enough - so a short announcement will have to do for now. :)

One of these days, I'll get around to writing up a few more details on his birth, I promise.

In the meantime, let's just say Callum has made his own entrance in the world unique and not at all similar to Logan's. He's going to be a tough contender to his brother, that's for sure.

And I wouldn't expect it any other way.

Welcome to our family Callum - we love you and can't wait to watch you grow and develop into your own.

(Most pics are courtesy of my mom and dad, until I have a chance to post up a gallery of some of our own - Thank you Zafu and Zabuton!)

So blessed to have another little life in our clan. Look forward to getting to know him and to see Logan interact with his new brother.

Thanks Charlie! I certainly don't feel it but I appreciate the compliment nonetheless!! ;-)
