We're calling him Anders

It's a boy

-who decided he was ready to come into the world yesterday, early morning (12:40 am). Thus far, he is quite a gentle soul, and we are cherishing the opportunity to get to know him. Ginny is currently doing great, and all details about delivery will come (or not) from her.

Of course, as all parents do, we have enjoyed seeing similarities & differences between him & his siblings already. We think he’s pretty great.

We’re still at the hospital with a winter storm beginning to take shape outside; should be able to head home tomorrow, but the weathermen are predicting icy armageddon, so we’ll see.

Thanks for all of the visits, prayers, and notes.

Congratulations! He is adorable. I used to work for Tom at TRS before we moved back to Texas. I actually worked there when you all were planning your wedding. I found Elliot's blog through another blog I follow and was so touched that I had to read all of your posts. I was surprised to see that it was someone I knew. (kind of) You have a beautiful family and are an inspiration to many people. Congratulations once again! (BTW...Your mom made the best strawberry pie I have ever had!)
