The baby is HERE!!!


Ethanis Kenpachi was born September 18, 2010. He weighed 5 lbs 10 oz and was 18 inches long. Mom and baby are doing well, as you can see in this photo. This is one of my favorite pictures. I have most uploaded on Facebook. He is perfect as can be...

She called me Friday evening around 6ish. She told me her symptoms and I suggested she call the doctor. After doing a few suggestions from the midwife... I called them back a couple hrs later. At this point they were headed to the birthing center to get checked out. I started packing and getting ready. Not long after that, It was confirmed that she was in labor... dilated 6 cm and water broke. So I hit the wide open road... 420 miles! I was tired in this picture... He was born at 2:15am... I arrived about 5:30am. This was taking minutes after I got there.
The following day I was sporting a Daughtry Tee and couldn't resist snapping all the photos... including this one of Gigi and her baby E.

This is where the "next blog" button brought me.

They all kinda have that Winston Churchill look. Maybe he'll become prime minister or something.
