Spencer Myles Lobb is in the house


So there I (Chris) was having a really good night sleep Sunday morning at 4:00 when the " I think my water just broke episode #3" began. At 6:30 before I was really awake out came the words "it's a boy, and what a boy". 6 Pounds 14 ounces , 19 inches long and piano playing fingers (and toes). Kirsten's doing really well (and so am I if any one cares). Turns out Taylor really didn't care if it was a girl because all she wants to do is hold and kiss "her" Spencer. She's already trying to teach him how to walk. Quinten however is more interested in the hopital t.v. and ear piece. The cast for the life and times of the Lobbsters has now been set and Kirsten and I have had to change from man to man defence to a zone system. Who wants to babysit first?? Anyone, Anyone, Bueller, Bueller.
There's nothing in this world that compares to seeing your child born and the doctor telling you your child has arrived safely. For some reason it's just as exciting every time and I believe I've had enough of that excitement. God has Blessed me with the most wonderful family I could ever imagine led of course by the most caring wife I could ask for. She is of course the real boss.
Kirsten and I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support and would like to have you over to come and meet the newest Lobbster. Don't be surprised if while you're distracted by the cute baby we bolt and go out for a few hours.
P.S. The diapers are upstairs and the baby gets breast fed. Good luck.

Since I didn't get to talk to you (though I know that Jordan passed my congrats along)...HOORAY! Congratulations...I can't wait to see all of you. He looks beautiful- I mean- he looks appropriately beautiful for a boy :)

I will change diapers, but I think he'll be sorely disappointed if he tries to get any sort of nutrition out of me (so please leave a bottle).

Congratulations Chris and Kirsten! I'm so happy for you! You have the perfect little family. And Chris, your post was so funny and very moving as well. We can all tell you love each other so much. Of course we could all tell that 10 years ago! Again, congrats! I'm living too far away to take you up on the invite to come over, but when we're in Calgary again, we will definitely stop by! Love you all!

Congratulations you guys he is so adorable. Jaymee has been asking when she can come see Spencer. So let us know when is a good time and we will be there.

Tammy & Jeremy said...

That was a hilarious blog Chris, and touching. I bet you have your hands full now, but think of all the good times you will have when your kids are older and they come over for family dinners and Christmas. I have always wanted a large family. Maybe someday we will have one too.

Beautiful boy you have there! Give baby and mama our best.

Heather & Lowell said...

Congratulations! Well, since we're moving to calgary we may be able to help you out with your predicament - give us a call anytime you want to go out....alone! And Chris, who knew you were such a comedian! Oh Spencer, what a cute name!

Congratulations, Cris & Kirsten and welcome Spencer! Love the name. He looks absolutely adorable and we can't wait to meet him. Kirsten, if you need a break to sleep & catch up, let me know 'cause Taylor & Quinten can come over to play with Julia.

Desiree said...

Congrats! Try to take it as easy as you can, although I know it can be difficult. Maybe some time that I am in Calgary I could pop over and you could feel free to leave. Our kids are the same ages so they could entertain one another. Good luck with everything. Blessings to you all!

Congratulations!
He is so adorable...Chris you are hilarious!
Ian and I are going to be in Banff this weekend. If you guys aren't crazy busy with other well wishers we will pop in to see your newest edition and your two older cuties.

BethJoy said...

Hey guys, congrats. I am so happy for you guys, and glad he is here healthy and handsome! It's been a while since we've chatted on the phone Kirsten. But I will wait until you get a little more settled with 3, and I want to know what it's like! Cause 2 has been harder enough as it is for me, and we will one day be in your boat with 3 too! Anyway, hope to talk soon!!

so im guessing he's going to be the messy one with a name like S. Lobb ... yikes that could be dangerous having seen what the other two can do to a freshly tidied room. he's pretty cute.. i guess.. just kidding he's just as ruggedly handsom as his cousin once removed ... its funny how genes work.

Nicole said...

Congrats. And next time I am in Cagary I will be more than happy to babysit. Still have to meet the first two.

Here, here, to 2 great parents. I'm available whenever, but I also will not be able to provide nutrition without the aid of a bottle. Great blog Chris! I knew you were funny but who knew you had that sentimental side.

Jenn said...

wonderful news. Congrats to both of you. Glad you are all well. Great names. You have a very handsome little boy. Blessings on your new little addition. Take it easy.

Sketti said...

Congratulations you two on your new addition! I see myself struggling with just one child and there you are with three! I am awed! x
