Our little man

Ira Hinckley
Ira was born on Wednesday, November 8, 2006 at 1:57 pm. He weighed in at 8 lbs 4 oz. and was 20.5 inches long. We named him after his great-great-great grandfather Ira Nathaniel Hinckley who built Cove Fort, Utah. Joseph didn't want a junior but we did keep Joseph's middle name of Hinckley. As you can see, Ira has a full head of jet black hair. The girls, with the exception of Marie, were all bald. I am also excited because Ira has a dimple in his right cheek just like Joseph. :D
We've received a load of help from Joseph's mom and sister who came up Wednesday and stayed until Thursday afternoon. They brought about 30 homemade frozen dinners with them and took care of the girls (and Joseph) while I was in the hospital. My SIL's also helped to watch the girls. My parents are coming today to help for a few days as well. It's such a blessing to have so many wonderful extended family members!
I am doing great and am thrilled to be back home and have my brood around me again.

Congratulations Montse! I can't believe you had a boy. We had a girl after 4 boys, then another boy! It's a lot of fun to have one that's different. I love his name. What a heritage, we've been to Cove Fort, and we loved it. Enjoy!!

Yea! Thoughts and prayers have been with you. Our son Bryant is named after BSH, but we cannot claim a blood line. :) What a beautiful baby he is. Hope you are doing well.
