Trial Run

After seeing this on a friend's blog, I thought I'd give it a try to post a slideshow of pictures. The most recent ones I have loaded on my computer are from Mom's trip out here (sorry Mom and Dad--I know you've seen all of these pictures already). Enjoy!

Mom's visit

We have been very lucky the past week and a half to have my mom here to help. It has been wonderful. Evelyn has loved playing so much with Grandma, housework has actually gotten done, we've eaten really well, and it's just been fun to be able to hang out and visit with my mom.

She's leaving early tomorrow morning, so it will be back to reality for us. I may go into shock that laundry and dishes don't magically get done, and I'll actually be the one to change all of the diapers during the day. But I suppose it will be good to get things more back to "normal," and I know that Mom is ready to get back home. We have sure enjoyed her time here, though.

Edison Dean

As many, if not all, of you know, Edison Dean Hinckley joined our family on August 29th. He was born at 3:22 p.m. and was 5 lbs. 12 oz. and 18 1/4 in. long. He was about two weeks early, since his "official" due date wasn't until September 11th, but he decided that he didn't want to wait.

So far he has been quite a calm little guy who doesn't cry much. And Evelyn just adores him. She loves being able to help in any way that she can, although sometimes she tries to help a little too much.

I'll be sure to post another entry later giving labor details, for those who want to read them, but suffice it to say we are thrilled to have Edison in our family and are grateful for his safe arrival.
