Zeke Stats

A friend pointed out that I forgot to included Zeke's birth stats on the "He's Here!" post.
I have revised it now.

Happy Love Day

My one-and-only honey had to work today. No biggie, he usually works on Saturday. But he came home bearing gifts - cards and candy ;o) We've had a nice, quiet day.

I/Zeke had a great night last night! So I was feeling pretty good this morning and wanted to surprise my sleeping sweetheart when he woke up. One of his favorite breakfasts is biscuits and gravy, so we decided to make red-marbled heart biscuits.

Ready for the oven

Grandma, still lookin' cute without her makeup!

And Mr. Zeke. He found his fingers. It was love at first bite.

Happy Valentine's Day!

What's with baby acne? This kid has little zits everywhere! They only seem to last a day or so, then disappear completely - too bad puberty acne isn't as quick-healing! ;o)

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.

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!
