jonathan scot ramsey

matthew was almost named jonathan, and 4 years later we still like the name, so we decided to name him after the collective jonathan's in our life... good name.

scot is my middle name. my parents have informed me that the one 't' is in deference to our scottish heritage. i don't have much evidence of this scottish heritage, but i like the idea of it. someday i will return to visit my people. a lot of scottish folks settled in western nc because it reminded them of the highlands of scotland. there's actually a town (a stretch to call it a town) named 'ramsey' out there. we visited once. no one was around.

i'm actually 50% croatian, so we considered my grandma's maiden name, kutuzovich, but jonathan kutuzovich ramsey doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.

so here he is... with the rest of the clan (get it... scottish... clan?)...

he's here!

about 12:30 this morning bobbi-jo was feeling contractions every 4 to 8 minutes so she drove herself to the hospital (i'm pretty sure this means i'm a lousy husband, but wanted to make sure it wasn't a false alarm before waking up jason and diana... that sounds like i'm blaming it on jason and diana, let's just call me a lousy husband) and they decided to get that baby out here.

so i headed over to the hospital, we waited a few hours for everyone to get ready, and at 5:59 this morning, they delivered the yet-to-be-named ramsey baby #4. he was 7 lbs 11 oz and 21 and a half inches long. good size for 37 and a half weeks.

i'll put some pics up later...
