Eric Daniel Keyes

Eric Daniel Keyes arrived Monday April 6, 2009 at 10:15 p.m. He weighed 8 lbs and was 21 inches long. Labor and delivery were actually a lot better than I thought it would be. If you want details then just let me know. We love this little boy so much and feel so blessed to have him. - -Sarah

Getting ready the night before


Day 1 (night of the birth)

Hangin out with dad:

The Normans came to visit!

Day 3
Going home day

Grandma Pitcher is here! We are so glad that she could come and help us-what do you do with a baby?

From Joe:
he came without too much of an argument, and is a pretty chill baby. they gave sarah the epidural right after she started feeling pain, and she made the whole process look pretty easy. how hard could it be? eric daniel keyes weighed 8 pounds, and was 21 inches long. he really likes burping, and sucking on anything in sight. i think we'll start him on chicken teryaki tonight.

okay EXTREMELY cute videos (except the labor one, joe you are so weird). and joe he sleeps just like you with his mouth open!haha! Sarah doesn't it feel so amazing to have him out of your belly and into your arms! There is nothing better then being able to roll onto your stomach and not have soemthing kick you a trillion times. Lucky Elisha got to be there and hold him. He is so cute and I love his cute face, I wonder how different he is going to be in a month when we get to come up! thanks for the pictures, we'll be looking daily for more!

We love you guys! And can't wait to see you and your little one. He is pretty darn cute. Joe, we need to see a picture of you holding him where your head isn't cut off. Loved the videos. You should tell Ian how cool it is being a dad. Thanks so much for sharing photos and videos. Congrats!
