This is George Stephen Brake, Janet and Matt's newborn son. He's a little tyke, and he barely made a peep during the hour and a half with him today I spent with him today. He looks a lot like Matt, but with a full head of dark hair.
He rushed into the world this morning, arriving two weeks early, not waiting for nothing or nobody, full of brute strength and ignorance, haha. Matt sent me a text around 9:15am that read, "I know you're busy," followed by a picture of George snuggling into Janet. I was getting a haircut down at Fogtown, and had no idea Janet had even started going into labour at all. The b'ys yelled out congratulations and I did everything I could not to completely breakdown in tears, haha. I had a little tear and that was it.
Janet's mother, Anne, held Georgie while Melissa and I looked on in wonder at the beauty of this little guy. There was a soft light accenting his button nose and I grabbed a couple of photos.
Both mother and baby are healthy and doing great. I just got a text from Matt letting me know George is up and crying quite well.
Janet, you're amazing, you've given George the best possible start in life. Your love for him warmed the hospital room today and it's something I'll never forget. Matt, I can't wait to see the father you are going to become, raising George with the values that make you the incredible person you are.
Melissa and I love you both and we are so happy for you.
