The Surprise Family is FINALLY proud to introduce Clinton Francis Surprise. He was born August 22, 2010 at 1:17pm. He was by far my biggest baby, weighing in at 7 pounds, 9 ounces compared to my 5 lbs 7 ozs and 6 lbs 5 oz babies, but he also cooked the longest. Both of my boys were born early, so when Clinton was born after his due date, I was beginning to believe we was just never coming out. We are at home adjusting to a life of 5. The boys are loving their new brother, Kieran can’t seem to give him enough kisses. I am enjoying a little bit of peace time with my family, now I just need to figure out a whole new routine. The thought of a trip with 3 kids by myself right now freaks me out.
The story behind the name: Clinton has been one of my husband’s favorites for a long time now but was bypassed when Kieran was born. For the past month, we were down to 2 names but couldn’t decide. We figured we would wait to see baby and pick the name that suited him best, Clinton it was. Francis was one of the most wonderful people to be apart of my life, my grandfather. We lost him 4 years ago to cancer and he has been very much missed since. All of my boys carry the name of a special person in our family we have lost. It is our way of keeping their memory alive and letting them know how important they were to us.
I want to thank everyone who has sent their well wishes, they are really appreciated! I also want to thank the Doctors and Nurses at Vassar Brothers Medical Center for taking great care of us, especially our baby.
