Introducing Max!

Apparently not being happy with the idea of being born in the Year of the Ox, Maximilian Samuel Wagner joined our family a whole 3 weeks ahead of schedule.

Maximilian Samuel Wagner
Born at CPMC in San Francisco on Saturday January 24th, at 2:58pm
6 lbs. 3oz., 18 inches

Heather's water broke at work last Friday afternoon at 4pm, her very last day before maternity leave. Apparently, this is the sort of thing that happens all the time in movies and TV, and not so often in real life. We went to the hospital and found Heather wasnt dilated yet, though contractions had begun. We were able to spend the early stages of labor back at home, enough time to get a few bags packed with the essentials for our hospital stay.
When 11pm came 'round, the contractions were intense enough to get ourselves back to the hospital to be admitted.
Long story short, we left CMPC at 12:30pm on Monday, with a healthy mommy and baby! Staff at the hospital, not to mention our parents, got a huge kick out of the fact that Max has red hair.
