It’s a Boy!

Introducing Ethan Richard Heinrich!

At 11:14am today Ethan was born. He was 7 pounds 10 ounces, and 18 1/2 inches long. Mother and son are doing fine; I’ll have pictures as soon as I get them back, probably tomorrow.

The pictures are up! Check them out in the Ethan Richard photo album. Our newest little bundle is as cute as can be; if viewing his pictures online just isn’t enough, you can get a print of any of them through the drop-down list at the top of the image page: just select the service that you want to do the printing. Or, if you’d prefer to use a different service, feel free to copy the image to your computer and send or take it wherever you’d like! Tip: click the “View images: Full” link at the top of the image page to get the highest resolution version of the picture for printing!

You can also view and order his hospital pictures online as well, at the Growing Family web site. Enjoy!

You know, you don’t really appreciate your back yard until you can’t use it for 7 months. After Ivan, there was debris all over and the fences were down. Even after we got the debris cleaned up, we still couldn’t let the girls play back there because of the lack of fences. Then we replaced the roof, so there were shingles and nails all over the place.

Last week I finished the fence, and this weekend I’ve finally gotten all the debris picked up and the yard mowed. The difference was amazing, especially the weight that seemed to be lifted off my shoulders. I didn’t realize how depressing that mess was until it was gone. Rachel and I stood out there tonight and talked about all our dreams and plans for the back yard, back porch, and patio. And now that the back yard is usable for the first time in over half a year, they seem possible.

It’s almost time!

With less than two weeks to go before Rachel’s due date, we’re getting excited about the arrival of our third baby! The only problem is, our digital camera broke, so we sent it to be repaired and I doubt that it will be back in time. So we started using my old 35mm camera, but it broke too. I sure am thankful for disposable cameras! There’s no way we’ll be caught on delivery day without a camera if we can help it! Even with film, I’ll try to get the pictures developed as quickly as possible so I can post them in the photo albums. Read the rest of this entry
