I spoke to Doug again yesterday evening. Little Carson is doing great, as is Rachel. Both are coming come later today (they keep them both in the hospital 24 hours before releasing them). Doug sent some pictures of Carson yesterday and said he would try and send a few more soon. He brought Ruby to see her little brother for the first time, he said, and she was hugging and kissing him.
The official statistics, as I know have them are:
Name: Carson Hamilton Rubin
Birthdate:March 8, 2006 1:00 AM PT
Weight:8 pounds, 3 ounces
Incidentally, Carson’s due date was March 7, 2006. I don’t know how often it happens that a baby is born so close to the due date (he was an hour off of being born on the due date), but that’s a pretty darn good guess on the doctor’s part.
