Odin- a little man with a big name

Odin became a little man with a big name on July 26, 2006 at 11:01 PM. He currently resides with his Mommy, Daddy, dog, Honey, cat, Grasshopper, and fish tank of un-named fish in Santa Cruz, California where he enjoys long walks along the ocean, daily visits with Daddy to the greenhouse in the backyard, and being social with Mommy and his friends. Odin will be getting a sibling at the beginning of October and he's really excited!

We had our baby!

Hi everyone!
Zephyr was born on Sept. 27 at 2:34PM weighing 8lbs,
6oz and was 21.5 inches. Everything went wonderfully until he was
born and it turned out he was twisted in the canal and then had a very
tightly wound cord wrapped twice around his neck so things were a bit
hairy for a few days. They sent him over to the NICU at the hospital across the street
which was really rough on all of us but thankfully, with a lot of
doctor pushing and prodding from our whole family and hard work with
breastfeeding, we got to take him home last night and now all is going
well and he is a healthy very hungry little guy! His name means "West
Wind" as he came into our lives like a whirlwind into a very chaotic
household under construction and thankfully things are starting to
calm down a bit. Our house looks beautiful and it was so exciting to
come home to all the new finishes! Some of you may remember the
little mischievous monkey "Zephir" in the Babar books and Zephyr is
certainly a little chunky monkey! Two pounds and two inches bigger
than Odin was! He is a very happy easygoing baby and barely cries at
all but is very interested in everything around him and is already a
great little listener which is handy since Odin is quite the talker :)
Odin is very excited to have a new brother...he is being great! I
think he's just relieved to have us all home again and that things are
back to "normal." We hope to see you all soon and introduce you to
our new little guy!
