Our New Arrival

All weekend long I had been having contractions, but we managed to make it until Sunday for Jordan's farewell talk and open house. We had a great weekend in Mesa and are so glad we were able to see Jordan off on his mission to Guatamala.
Monday morning, about 5:30, I woke up and it was definitely time for little Zachary Douglas 'Columbus' Bingham to join us.
We made it in just enough time that I was able to get an epidural.
Since it was Columbus Day on Monday we thought we might consider using Columbus as a 2nd middle name to honor our favorite explorer, as cute as it sounds we'll probably just remember that he was born on Columbus Day.

Zachary was born at 8:33 am on October 13, 2008. He weighed 7lbs 12 oz and was 19.75 in long.
The kids just love him. Ella was ecstatic to meet him in the hospital. Caden and Taylor love to hold him. Taylor is always trying to break into Ella's or Caden's turn when they are holding him. He is always asking to hold baby Zachaee, we think he's saying Zachy, but Taylor always corrects us. It is so cute to see how much the kids just adore their new baby brother.

We feel so blessed to have this beautiful baby boy in our family.

Our pretty toes, Though one of Ella's toes was a little smeared already. She got a cute little flower on her toes.

I have been promising Ella a pedicure for a very long time, so we finally went out on Tuesday evening for a little quality time. Ella loved it, sometimes she and Caden give me foot rubs so she was so excited to get one of her own. It did feel really good and I am glad to have cute toenails before the baby comes.

After the pedicure we went to Cold Stone for a little treat. She is such a fun little girl.
