An exciting week!

I have been telling Cindy that she was going to be having this baby early. I had no idea he was going to be this early. On Wednesday November 21, Cindy went in for a usual appointment. The Dr did the measuring and was about to send her home and Cindy asked if they would check to see if she was dilated. Thats when I got a call from Cindy telling me she was at the hospital and she was 90% effaced and 4.5 cm dilated. At 7:03 PM Elmer Kai Barrientos was born. 6lbs 6 oz and 19 inches long. look at all this dark hair! He is such a sweet baby. Loves to sleep and loves to be held (of course.)

Chris, Susan and Hattie got here that same day and it was great to see them. Hattie is quite the character! We got to see how shy Michael can be. That little girl sure knows how to take charge. At one point she was sitting in Michael's rocking chair and he was standing near her waiting for his turn. Hattie sticks her finger out at him and says, while shaking her finger, "no no no no no" It was so cute!

Chris got a new memory card for his camera and let Todd copy his pics. That is where these came from. Last time I took pics off our camera I really messed things up so I am posting the ones Chris took since they are already here.

We had our first snowfall last night. Brrrr it was so cold!
