Ezra Van Garner

For everyone that hasn't heard the news, he has a name. And to celebrate his new name we gave our blog a new name too. (Since it's not all about Max anymore. Although he'll still get his fair share of attention.) Anyway, Ezra is loving his new home and Heather is glad to be out of the hospital. Her only real complaint about her time in the hospital was that it was too hot (the air conditioning was on the fritz). But considering the Army paid for every penny of it, we can't complain too much. So, thank you, everyone, for financing our new child by paying your taxes.

Here are some more photos for everyone to enjoy.

We've decided that he looks exactly like Max did at this stage. We'll post a side by side comparison one of these days.

As you can see, Ezra is pretty laid back.

This is Ezra getting ready for his inaugural car ride.

And a shot of Max in the middle of one of his favorite activities.

He's Here!!! (But he doesn't have a name yet.)

Well the newest little Garner boy was born at 5:51 this evening. We just went in for Heather's regular appointment and the doctor told her to go up to the delivery room and 6 hours later we became a family of four. He weighed 8 pounds 4 ounces and is 21 inches long. Which isn't bad considering he was 15 days early. We're all excited that he's here and we're working hard to figure out his name. I promised my Mom that he would have one by tomorrow morning. Hopefully we can follow through on that.

Here is the happy family. Max was thrilled to meet his little brother. He had a big grin on his face the whole time. However he really doesn't understand that his whole world is about to change. But so far the two of them get along great.

And here are the three Garner men. Max and I can't wait to have some fun with the new guy.

Airshow Outing

Yesterday we went to the airshow and Max really enjoyed himself. He wanted to see and touch all of the planes and was especially intrigued by the golf carts that the workers were using to get around.

Max loved this miniature plane that kids could play in. In fact he loved it so much that he wouldn't come out and his dad had to go in after him.
This last picture is dedicated to Max's uncle Alex. Max and his Dad are sitting in a Stryker vehicle which is what Alex is cruising around in over in Iraq. I hope its more comfortable than it looks.
