Last photo before...

While going through my vast library of photos I realized this is the last 'real' photo I took of C, 3 days before Rylan was born, and thought it'd make an interesting blog post.

Day trip with Rylan and the fam

We decided to be adventurous and take baby Ry to Bainbridge Island so C's mom and sister could enjoy the ferry ride. It was a gorgeous day and everything was beautiful. He slept most of the time.

Rylan Edward Meert

Happy birthday to me, our baby officially has a name: Rylan Edward Meert!!!

When he was born I immediately noticed something about him looked like, or reminded me, of Charlie's dad. I think it was his eyes. Edward was his middle name, and I like it.

Rylan is much more complicated. The two names at or near the top of our lists were Ryan and Dylan. When we asked a very dear friend for advice he suggested Rylan. After a few more days of intense negotiations we finally decided he'd be Rylan and made the phone call to make it official on my birthday, yay!

All-Nighter Name-Storming

He's almost a week old and we still haven't found him a name... We'll be up all night.

A few shots of the new guy from the hospital and then at home, less than 4 days old.

Sorry, we have not picked a name yet, but obviously will soon. We were going to do that sometime this week, but he decided a week and a half early would be a nice surprise.

Our little boy arrived at 11am this morning after about 8 hours of labor. He weighed 6lbs 10 oz. and was 19 inches long.

He's sitting in my lap as I write this too. :)

Bonus fact: he was born on our 8th anniversary!
