Seth Titus Edwards

Seth has entered our world in person. At 05:30 or thereabouts on Sunday morning (Father's Day), Rebecca's bag of waters broke. We arrived at the hospital around 6am. Seth was born at 07:18 July 21, 2009; 7lbs. 10oz.; 21 1/2" long; blonde hair; blue eyes.

Dr. Ferguson arrived on the run in time to clamp and cut the cord that was wrapped twice around Seth's neck... and catch. Seth was a bit dusky and needed oxygen, but revived well and has done outstanding. At his 4 day check up, he had already gained back his birth weight plus 3 oz. He is a delight to all--easy going and loves to hear his siblings around him. (They also enjoy him greatly!)

Few hours after birth (catching up on some TV with Dad:)

New Pictures/No Baby Appearance Yet!

So sorry for the delay in posting, but a combination of pregnancy, moving, buying a house, cars, renovating aforementioned house, carpal tunnel in pregnant Mommy's hands, moving into the house with 3 separate shipments (minus a dining room table that mysteriously disappeared from storage), etc... has kept us away from the computer for the most part. However, we did get some pictures here and there and thought you would enjoy a short snapshot of our lives the last couple of months until we can get more on here...

Stopping at Norfolk on our way from the Azores to Enid, we met up with Ryan's sister Maureen and family... all had a blast in the relatively quiet morning airport.

Papa and Mama Robin took up residence outside our living room windows and produced some exciting babies to watch.

The boys (perhaps inspired by their sister...the story gets a little fuzzy there) decided to snack on the seeds of our backyard tree. We spent that Saturday morning trying to find out what the tree was, much less whether it was poisonous. All was good... evidently it is a male Pecan tree. Boys!!!

We're supposed to be outside looking at a brewing tornado, right?:) Leave it to Ryan! You can see some of our house in the picture--some day we'll get some acceptable pictures.

Our backyard has many kid-pleasures, not the least of which is a couple of trees to climb...

...and then fall out of...
