We are thrilled to announce the arrival of our baby boy Ethan last night at 12:30 am our time. Our SM went into labor yesterday early so we have been rushing around getting ready and we will be leaving today at 2:00 to pick Ethan up from India. The smile on Chucks face was huge when we found out it was a boy. And I am thrilled of course too! Pictures of the little guy to follow as soon as we get them. :))))

surrogate is in labor!

Woke up this morning and found out our SM went into early labor at about 430 am. Wow! Can't believe it! Running around, changing plane tickets, getting rx, baby wipes, etc...taking a moment for lunch. Back on road to pick up tickets and go by kitchen place to see if we can pick granite. Glad I figured out baby bijourn last night. Off to india tomorrow! Thanks for everyones prayers for a healthy baby and safe trip!

In the beginning...

This is how it began, in New Delhi Sept 2010. The Taj Mahal was worth the 4 hour trip, one way, on dirt roads with the driver honking every 30 seconds and being attached by vicious monkeys (j/k but they did like to sit on my head).

Preparing for our Trip to India

So we are getting ready for our trip to India to pick up our new addition. Very exciting although we don't have time to be as there are so many things to remember...I am making list after list...keep thinking I am forgetting something. Can't wait until we are back in sunny Cali with our healthy baby!
