Ashton Hinckley Bird

Baby Bird has finally arrived!!! He was born Saturday, September 20 at 2:24 a.m. He was 7.4 lbs and 19" long. Lorin hovered over Brenda the whole time, exclaiming "Wow!" and "Whoa!" and "Humph, interesting" and "Crazy!" and "Do you see that?" and "Can you believe that?" and "Holy Cow!" and "Jeez that guy has a lot of gloop" and "Ooh, man that must hurt!" and "Huh, would you look at that" and a lot of other not-so-funny-at-the-time proclamations, announcements, commentary, declarations, pronouncements, and observations. Brenda pushed for a good 3.5 hours after a pleasant contractional experience stretching from 1 PM on Wednesday and lasting until that lovely and blessed Saturday morning. Ashton Hinckley (Gordon B. and Marvin J. anyone?) Bird is beautiful little boy who has already conquered an extremely narrow birth canal, a cone head, oralized meconium (ask what that is in private please!), hepatitis b shot, low glucose, an IV for aforementioned low glucose, a mild form of jaundice, and numerous cuts for blood testing. He is now wondering why he voted yes for the plan of salvation and who sent him to this fallen and crude world and why are those writhing tentacle-like members always hitting him in the face and what he wouldn’t give to show them who’s boss! His eyes say it all- why God, why?!

Congratulations!!! We are so happy for you both. Ashton is a very good looking boy and he is very lucky to have you for parents. It will be fun to watch him grow up with you. Thanks for letting us share in your joy. Love you both!!

Congratulations Brenda! Aren't you just glad he's here? I think that's why the last couple weeks of pregnancy are uncomfortable--to make you desperate to just have the baby OUT! Hope everything is going well post-delivery with the baby and you. I'd love to see pictures when you have a chance (and if you want to of course!)! Congrats!
