Our 40th Week

Well our 40th week of pregnancy brought with it our little bundle of joy! Please welcome Mr. Dempsey Mason Ruehrdanz! He was born on Friday, March 2nd at 8:58pm. He weighed 7lbs, 10 oz and was 20.1" long (and had a 13" head). He is absolutely perfect!!

His name: Clint Dempsey is one of Finn and my's favorite soccer players (he plays for the USMNT as well as Fulham in England). And Mason is my maiden name. So we gave the kid three last names - how awesome is that!? :)

All of the pregnancy symptoms, etc. were totally worth it. He is the most incredible gift we could have ever asked for.

We've been staying really busy with feedings every 2-3 hours, diaper changes, and everything else that comes with a newborn! I will try to do some more posts soon, including: Birth Story (complete with TMI), Hospital Reflections, Dempsey's 1st Week, and more!! :)

In the meantime, please enjoy a few Dempsey pics!
