Ethan Ross

Wow. I can't even explain how much love I have for this new little guy. It's incredible.

He was 8 lbs. 13 oz. Born 1:08 am March 1st! And that's okay (that it's not on leap day). We're just glad he's here.

We're both doing really well, and we just made it home from the hospital a couple of hours ago. Ross has two tests to take today-- lame.

Here are a few pictures from day one. Plenty more info. and pictures to come I'm sure.

Thanks everyone so much for the warm wishes and compliments on the nursery!

Did your dad take these wonderful photos? I've been so excited to see your blog because I knew you'd have fantastic pictures of Ethan. I saw the ones Becky had a couple days ago.
