Eddie's Here!

Yes, number eight grandchild has arrived, in Okinawa of all places.
We're happy for Rick and Wendy.
Photos will have to suffice until they're back in the states.

Edward Richard Blair
March 5, 2010
8 lbs. 7 oz.
22 inches

Everyone, especially mom and son, are doing great! 
The Blair Chronicles, for more photos.

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home:

    Congratulations to ALL of the Blair family on the birth of beautiful, healthy lil' "Eddie". I love when a family name is carried on. Josh and Amanda called me when they got home last night and told me how much they love the name "Houston". Maybe . . .

  2. What a beautiful baby boy! So hard to have him so far away! Thank goodness for technology so that we can see pictures so quickly! I love his name! Very cute!

  3. Yes. There needs to be more Edward Blair's out there. (Blair is my middle name)

  4. Very cute! Congratulations Grandma.

  5. What a handsome little guy! Eight grandbabies, that must make you a pretty "Grand" mama! How wonderful!! Sure love you guys!
