Pictures: Our son, Hale Jefferson Hynes!
At 3:09pm PST on May 25, 2010, Hale Jefferson Hynes came into the world weighing in at 6 lbs and 14 ounces. He was a bit of a surprise considering he wasn't due until June 8th, so needless to say it was far more interesting of a day than we expected.
Hale was my Grandfather's middle name (and mine) and Jefferson is in honor of Elizabeth's late Father. Family names ruled the day.
Mom and baby are doing great! Hale kept quiet for most of the day but managed to peek around by opening his eyes and even eating a little. So far he has had very little to say other than he wants to register as a Democrat (after all it was nice of Obama to be in SF today), he told us we wimped out by not finishing our sailing trip around the world, he hopes the Tiger's win the World Series for Detroit and that he doesn't like Merlot. He has also been tweeting at the following address if you want to follow:
Sounds like he already plans to be as opinionated as his parents and will be one hell of a crew member! What a great way to end our blog...
Seth, Elizabeth and Hale
