Balthazar! That's got to be the coolest middle name in the history of middle names. (Except maybe for my friends who were going to give their son the middle name "Danger," but their son turned out to be a daughter.) I'm glad you are all doing well. I cannot wait to see what the girls think of their new brother. I hope you are back to normal in no time. Although normal will be a bit different now.

Such a beautiful experience. I love his name. Fits right in there with the loveliness of Hilina and Saida. I'm glad everyone is healthy and will pray for rest. (;

Thanks for the precious photos.

He is beautiful! Congrats. And I think he has the coolest birth date ever. 8.8.08. Also born the same day as the Olympics began. Pretty cool. Maybe he will be an athlete!
