Welcome to the world, Ezra!

baby_cartoon_st8Just over three years ago, I introduced you to my firstborn.  Elijah has since grown into an active, inquisitive three year old.  I also wrote that we were expecting our second this past December.  I was busier this time, and so wasn’t able to blog about the run up quite as much as with Eli.

Two weeks ago, Ezra Matthew Zook was born at 1:34PM, weighing in at 6 lbs 13 oz, and 19 inches long.  Labor proceeded very quickly this time.  Melissa is doing great, and Ezra has quickly made a place for himself in our home.  Eli was initially a bit unsure of how to react.  Since then, he’s become very protective of his little brother, and loves him dearly.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I’ll stop writing and let you see the what you’re actually here for!

Brand new!

Brothers, meeting for the first time!

They say he looks like me.

We took him to the river for the first time yesterday; he showed us the true meaning of "relaxed."

More to come soon!  We went to a new swimming spot yesterday, and I have some photos to share of that too!

    Congratulations! So happy for you and Melissa. It’s great seeing the snapshots of y’all’s life and the joy on the faces everyone. This really goes without saying, I suspect it’s already being done, but take care of momma she’s a trooper! And way to go Big Brother! Teach Little Brother everything you know!
