Ethan is here!

Little Ethan (the Bean) decided to come a little early. On Friday night Becky and I had ordered some pizza and were watching Rocky Balboa. She got through a few pieces before the contractions got so strong that she couldn’t eat any more. After timing them for hours, we decided they weren’t going away, so we hopped in the car and sped to the hospital.

At 5:11 am Saturday morning, Ethan made his appearance. He was 21 inches, 8 lbs and 7 ounces and the cutest little guy I have ever seen. Becky did fantastic.

After a couple of long nights at the hospital, they finally let us go home. Tonight is our first time to be a family at home. The eager grandparents (first grandchild on both sides) will be flying in tomorrow and Tuesday. We’re very grateful to God for our little blessing and thankful to all our friends and family for their support.

You might want to keep up with this kid... I suspect he’ll be doing some great things in this world. smile
