The New Family Member

At about 04:56 on the morning of September 27, 2008, Jean-Luc Philippe Elder joined us. He weighed in at 8lbs 15ozs or about 4,055 grams.

We were fortunate that Monique's mom could be with us since Tuesday which really helped to reduce the stress around not knowing when the baby would be born and what to do with Anne-Marie and Raymond when the time came.

Here we are:

Philip, Raymond, Monique, Jean-Luc, Anne-Marie, Marie

When Monique let me know it was getting close to the time Friday evening, the T-Shirt, I AM READY Launch 2007, was totally appropriate! ;) I was! The nurses sure got a kick out of it.

Once we had the green light to leave the hospital later Saturday afternoon, in went Jean-Luc into his car seat and off to his new home after the other two were put to bed:

Now that's what I am talkin' 'bout! ;)

Our children are what it's all about. There is no other way to describe it for us.

congrats dude - the baby looks awesome - and such a cool name - it'll make for a great detective, actor or race car driver.

Hope they are both doing great since the hospital trip.
