Morgan was born at the Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City on December 27th, 2000 making him a Capricorn born in the Year of the Dragon. He was 7 pounds 4 ounces.

Morgan, about 10 minutes old. He was born by Cesarian Section with hardly any fuss at all. They put him on the baby-warmer right away, at which time he proceeded to howl in a healthy manner.

About 1 hour old, Morgan and Mom are in the recovery room. Morgan's feeding reflex is working fine. His eyes have antibiotic ointment on them.

Morgan is ready for his first car ride -- a New York City taxi! It seems he already knows what to expect...

Morgan in his bassinet. He surprised me by being smaller than I expected, and stronger than I expected too.

Morgan sleeping. What an angel. He only seems to cry when he wants something fixed, at this point mainly feeding, a diaper change, or needing to be burped.

The "burrito wrap" swaddling method. It seems to work for him. I think the hat really completes the look.

It's a fascinating new world for Morgan. Who knows what the future will bring?

It doesn't get earlier than this!
