Since I Left out Details
His name is George Ames Baker Wells. George is Jed's paternal grandfather's name. He died before Jed's parents were married, so Jed never got to meet him. He was a good and hardworking man with a dairy farm and four great sons. He had dark, curly hair, and after baths, so does our Georgie. Ames comes from Jed and my favorite book Gilead, by Marilynne Robinson. Named for the good Rev. John Ames. Read the book if you haven't already--it will make you appreciate life more than you have before. Baker is my dear grandma's maiden name. After interviewing her to write a history of her, and loving her and her parents so much because of the experience, I wanted to use her name. (Besides it is a lovely name isn't it?) I am already named after her--her middle name is Jayne. It is fun to have a son share another of her names.
And now I will go into great and gory detail about the birth experience. Because that's what people do on blogs, right? And Jed is just doctoring all the birth photos and videos so you can feel like you were right there along with us! Oh just kidding.
He weighed 9 lb 8 ounces. That should be gory enough for you.
I love this boy.
