You can tell I'm new at this because I forgot to post the STATS!
When he was born - 6 lb, 10 oz and 18 inches long.
Another fact that is included on his information sheet: "He has a bowel movement a day in good condition." Good to know. ;)

Your baby is a Gemini (which is my sign!).
He was born in the Chinese Year of The Ram (Goat).
Here's a bit about those born in the Year of the Goat:
Daydreaming all afternoon sounds heavenly to the Goat. This creative, esoteric Sign needs plenty of time alone in which to feed its Muse. Goats are generally most comfortable in their own minds (which other, more linear-thinking Signs may have trouble deciphering). This Sign makes a great craftsperson or artisan, or perhaps a teacher of New Age studies -- any occupation that allows its mind the full range of freedom. Goats tend not to be very well-organized, precluding many more dry business endeavors. In fact, Goats tend not to be very materialistic in general, finding plenty of riches in their own imagination. However, especially when in love, the Goat can be quite a lavish gift-giver.
Perhaps it's that artistic temperament that so often causes Goats to feel insecure, but the result is that these high-strung creatures need to feel loved and admired lest they start worrying incessantly. For this reason, Goats tend to have a hard time with romance; anyone who couples up with a Goat must know, this Sign has a sensitive streak a mile wide and can be subject to bouts of anxiety over seemingly inconsequential things. Goats need plenty of love, support and open reassurance from their lovers. If a relationship is marked by conflict, the Goat will often pull away -- either physically or simply by retreating into the safe haven of its imagination.
If the romance is going well, however, Goats won't hesitate to tell their partner what they need -- and they can be quite insistent about it! This Sign will definitely return the favor, however; the Goat has a luxurious side that delights in indulging a lover's every wish. Appearances are also important to the Goat, which may explain why these folks can spend hours primping and posing.
Goats would be well-served by learning to relax and let others run the show from time to time. Once they can be certain that their friends and lovers won't be gone when the Goat returns from its daydreams, life will be a field of daisies.
The most compatible match for a Goat is the Pig or the Rabbit.

HE IS SO CUTE!!!!
Congrats on your new coming baby! You must be so proud. Good luck and again, congrats!

Yay, Angi! I am so happy for you. Really really. This is the best news I've gotten in a LONG time. I know you'll be a great mom just thinking about all the love you've poured into just getting Elijah... let alone having him to hold. Congrats. -Apryl

I'm happy for you Angi. Your son is beautiful, and so are his parents.
