Mom and Dad have been together for more than 8 years and married for half of that time. They’ve got a great sense of humor. Mom broke the news that she was expecting by telling everyone to make an extra spot at the Thanksgiving table because she was bringing the turkey this year!
It’s a Boy
Both Mom and Dad had a strong feeling that they would have a boy and they were right! Mom says the best part of the pregnancy was feeling him move around and the worst part was the terrible swelling.
Mom wanted to keep using E names for the kids, in keeping with twin big sisters Emma and Emory’s names. She had always loved Dad’s middle name, Etson. It’s a family name that goes back to his great uncle, so it was a perfect fit.
When Etson made his way in the world all Mom could hear was the doctor say “He’s a cutie, he’s got Dad’s dimples!”
Mom’s first thoughts when she saw him were “Wow, what a chunk!”
The first few days at him were crazy! I can only imagine the craziness of having *almost* two year old twins and a newborn. When Etson’s twin sisters first met him, they would cry whenever he cried. So, Mom and Dad had to deal with three crying little ones!
