He's Here!

We would like you to meet:

Ezekiel Andrew Zahlmann

Born: February 8th (10 days early!)
8lbs, 8oz
21 3/4 "
at 8:07 am

This kid likes the number "8!" We were just seconds away from 8:08 am! ;o)

Here are a few first pictures of our sweet little guy!

I am only posting this one for posterity's sake. It's the only picture of me in the hospital.

Going home

Avonleigh and Zeke

Laethym and Zeke

Christopher and Zeke (FINALLY, A BROTHER!!)

Payton and Zeke

Grandma and Zeke

Things are going well (at this precise moment), but will be slow-going, so I will post soon about his birth. It was amazing!!

Not amazing however, was coming home and having all 3 girls come down with the stomach flu! I am so paranoid that Zeke will get it! My wonderful mom (who came to stay with us for 2 weeks!) came down with the flu last night. :o( Poor Grandma!!

Thank you to everyone for the well wishes, calls and goodies! We love you all!

I am so glad that everything went well. I was really excited when Dawn told me... Glad I decided to stay away from seeing you guys; sounds like you had enough sickness at the moment.

Let me know if you need anything.

I am freaking out! Really freaking out! Ezekial is on the top of our "if we have a baby boy" list of future names! I love love love the name and had already thought that we would call him Zeek. Oh' really Steph, we are kindred sisters. The funniest part is when I was pregnant with my girls and didn't know the gender I would mention the name Ezekial to people and they would try to pretend they liked it, but I didn't care cause I thought it was the greatest! So I am flipping out that you named your newest most darling little addition Zeke! OH' I love him already- I love love love you! You have this huge family now stephanie, I can't believe it, well yes I can! I am just too lost for any words because I am just beaming for you and your new Zeke. Love love love the name, love him and you even more! My biggest of congrats to a most deserving champion Mother!
