Baby Lincoln

 The video isn't available anymore, sadly. But the gist is that we tried really hard to have Lincoln on 10-10-10 and it didn't happen. He was born about 4.5 hours too late. But Fox News in Cleveland wanted to do a story on us because of our nerdiness for trying to get him born on that particular day. 10-10-10 is binary and equals 42 which, if you've ever read Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, is the answer to life, the universe, and everything. While I was in labor with Lincoln I read the entire book and it's pretty dang funny.

Lincoln is famous! And so are you two! I'm glad they still did the story even though it didn't quite go as planned. :) You did lots for this binary baby! Hey, maybe there's a way to alter his birth certificate to say he was born in Hawaii...it was still 10-10-10 there! :)
Honestly, seeing the video made us miss you guys even more. Congratulations and we hope recovery is wonderful! We love you guys!

Congratulations! You are a brave woman for allowing cameras in your room afterward, but you looked fantastic. Give him a squeeze from me.
