It’s a boy!!!

Yes, I know, I haven’t posted in a whole week, but for good reason.  Last Saturday, very, very, very, VERY early in the morning my darling wife gave birth to our newest little boy, Carson Ray Lindquist. 

He came a full two weeks early, but true to the mold, still weighed in at 8 lbs 7 oz, and was almost 22 inches long.

He’s now our fifth boy… much to the chagrin of my only little girl – the princess (family photo available at the bottom of “about me“).

While it’s true, most newborns look somewhat akin to aliens, I must be wearing my Daddy Lenses ‘cause I think he’s simply adorable, and squeezable, and totally sniffable (yes, I love that new-baby smell, kind of like the smell of a new car, only for humans).

So I took the week off work, did almost nothing besides partying and playing with my other kids while my wife and newborn rested up.  But, I did get lots of musing done, and have a full list of blog topics to resume my one-or-two-a-day post commitment.  I think you’ll enjoy them, and I guarantee one or two are bound to incite quite a ruckus of comments.  It’ll keep things lively at least.

Here are just a few photos of my little boy.  Click for a larger photo, click again for one even larger.

    He is just beautiful, Rusty. Congratulations! I have had the privelege of being in the delivery room for the birth of 4 of my 8 grandchildren (thank you daughters and sons in law!). I am always overcome with love and the miracle of it all! It is such a privelege to be a parent (and grandparent) but also a great responsibility. Carson game to a wonderful family! Have fun with him!

    Congratulations! This is always a very spiritual event and brings such joy into the family. However, I don’t envy all the diaper changing and sleepless nights ahead…:)
