View Full Version : Had a big weekend

Lots of excitement this past weekend in my house. Saturday morning, in the Home Depot Lumber aisle, my wife started having some pretty heavy contractions. 40 hours later....Yes 40 Hours of labor...we have a baby boy.


Crosby Jewell Edrington. 7lbs 5oz & 20 1/4 inches long.
Amber was exhausted, but was able to deliver him around midnight on sunday. I was so proud of her. Her and Crosby are doing very well.

Hope Mom is doing well? 40 hours :eek::eek::eek:

Looks like he's ready for a nice little 4' 1wt rod!

I'd say it's a pretty good sign that being in Home Depot was enough to prompt his arrival!

Congratulations to you and Amber, he's a good looking little fellow. I tell everyone that I never knew unconditional love until my first child was born. It changed my life in so many ways, savor every day, you will not believe how fast they grow up:smile:

Congratulations Grannyknot I second what flyman says having my son Jack changed my life and who I am today. He is just 5 but I set him up a gmail account and I forward or send him emails from time to time with pics, stories, and things I want him to know. When he gets older I or his momma will give him the login so he can read all that stuff some day. I always say hey to him in my posts too on the internet at the bottom of my signature hoping someday he will find a little bread crumb trail out there if any of these sites are still archived somewhere in 20 years.
