Introducing...Ezra Thomas Farmer







We welcomed our new baby boy, Ezra Thomas Farmer, into the family this Tuesday, December 9th, at 11:13 am! He came into the world fairly quickly - I'd spent the night with labor pains that never progressed enough to go in, then went in at 6 am to be induced. With Ella, I was in the hospital practically 24 hours before she was born. With Ezra, we were out of the hospital in 36. He is a sweet little guy who mainly fusses for nourishment and who's still trying to figure out this night and day thing. Ella wasn't so sure about her brother at first and is still adjusting, but she has wanted to hold him a few times and offered to share her crackers and chocolate milk with him today. We truly appreciate having Grandma Nancy here to help (so much help!) and we'll be blessed to have Grandma Cathy here in a week. Ella and Ezra are truly lucky Grandkids!

Congratulations Mindy! We are so happy for your growing family. I'm wondering what book the name Ezra came from. I believe you said you wanted his name to be from literature. I'm very curious.

Congrats guys! We got Tim's email and have been looking forward to your post about it. We're glad the labor and delivery went well. Good name! Congrats again.

Mandy - we actually didn't end up selecting a name from the "literary" list. The name did come up on literary lists, but not for anyone we particularly admired. We just liked it as a unique name that you don't necessarily hear alot. Thanks for all of the warm congratulations everyone!

He's a little cutie! Congratulations! I was in labor with David for 24 hours, and yeah, Sydney came much quicker! Hopefully it just keeps getting easier right?
