Wilder Chad Wilson

Last Thursday, a little over a week early, we had our baby boy. He was 6 pounds 10 oz. and 19.5 inches long. It was a relatively easy birth compared to Haylie and Hucks. I went to the hospital at 7:30 and had him at noon. Not too shabby...although I had been in a state of non progressive labor (is that even a real condition?) since Sunday after noon. It had not been a pleasant week up until the hospital finally said they would admit me. We are pleased as punch to have him at home, he is doing well and Huck loves him. Haylie, still not the nurturer, has very little use for him.

My youngest brother is getting married next week. Since I will not be able to attend the actual wedding because my due date is far to close we took a trip to Arizona last week. My whole family was in town, even my brother Tyler who is in the military. Obviously with several of us in the military opportunities for all of us to be in town at once are rare. We took the opportunity to get updated Pear Family pictures done with all the new additions.

We had a great time visiting family. Haylie especially loves visiting her cousins, aunts and uncles and Grandmas and Grandpas. She really loves her Aunt Reilly and Uncle Travis. It's adorable. When we came back to Texas we were putting her to bed and out of the blue she told us "Uncle Travis is my best friend". Aww, so cute. I'm sure it helps that Reilly and Travis only have boys so she is a novelty when she visits their place. Reilly fixes her hair and gives her candy. What's not to like about that?

Upper left corner picture is the original Pear Family. Next to that is the current family with in laws, and kids. The lower is obviously our family. Haylie is 3 and Huck is 21 months. In this picture I'm about four weeks from my due date. Tom was loving his first experience with white linen pants. He said they were more comfortable than pajamas and wondered why he hadn't sported the look earlier. In reality I think he wore them just to see what my family would say when he showed up. I thought they looked nice despite his reasons.
