Baby Palin makes surprise arrival!!

Trig Paxson Van Palin
Born 6:30 AM, April 18th, 2008
6 pounds, 2 ounces

Trig was not slated to arrive until May 18th, which makes him exactly one month early. Gov. Palin actually went into labor while in Texas for yesterdays Governors Forum, but flew back to Alaksa to give birth at the Mat-Su Valley Regional Medical Center. The Palin family issued the following statement:

"Trig is beautiful and already adored by us. We knew through early testing he would face special challenges, and we feel privileged that God would entrust us with this gift and allow us unspeakable joy as he entered our lives.

"We have faith that every baby is created for good purpose and has potential to make this world a better place. We are truly blessed"

No word yet on what those challenges are or where the name Trig came from. I will report more details as soon as they are released.

Congratulations to the Governor and her family!

Congratulations, indeed, to Governor Palin and family.

The press is reporting confirmation, now, that the special challenges are related to Trig's down syndrome. (We had heard this reported maybe the day Trig was born, but it took a while to get it confirmed).

Still no news on where the name came from, though.
