Z Quincy Hanselman was born in classic style at 1:11am on his ultrasound's due date at 6lbs 12oz and 20.5in with eyes wide open and strong lungs. Start to finish was ~20 hours. Mother and baby (and I) are resting comfortably at Tuality Community. He has a head of black hair and a penchant for milk. Pics to follow on Scott's blog sometime within the next 18 years if there's ever time to use a computer again. All is as it should be. Good night.
UPDATED: Here's a photo of little Z just 10 mins after the blessed event. Also, here's a video of his cuteness. File Attachment: Z1.wmv (1590 KB)
UPDATED: Better pics of Z.Q.
The Name: Z is short for Zzinhle or Zenzwezinhle (contraction of Z ezinhle). "Hle" is a root meaning Good, as in Kuhle (Ndebele) or Kahle (Zulu). Z means "deeds" so his name means, roughly, good deeds, as in a good samaritan or "one who does good deeds." As far as Quincy, it's just a cool name, and who wouldn't love a kid with the initials Z.Q.?
