Number 5 is alive

As a reward to my loyal readers, I'm letting you know before we've even told our families: We are expecting #5, due May 15.

  1. May 15th? By that time, our #5 will be doing long division...or be finished with the meconium stage, at least.

  2. WHAT?! Can that be possible!? Holy cow congratulations. May I never complain about challenging days with my ONE child ever again. Go Gabby- you are a champ. Queen Champ in my book.

    Oh good. I hope your new baby is as funny as Ralph and as beautiful as Maude and as hardcore as Olive.

    On a side note, blogs are cool, Its pretty cool you let everyone know on your blog. But Jeff, did you just announce your upcoming birth in Ben's comments?

  11. Actually Josh, I was born 34 years and a few months ago. Announcing one's own birth is a bit difficult, the sole example being found in 3 Nephi.

  12. Jeff-
    I just think it deserves a headline in your blog or something. By the, I hope your next one is a girl.

  18. Josh: have you not met Oscar? He's one of our kids. I guess I assumed--you being his uncle and living down the street and all--that we would have introduced you to him. Sorry, our bad if we haven't.

  19. Ive met him, he just hasnt impressed me as much as your other kids. I mean dont get me wrong, he's great, its just that I cant see any of his qualities that I hope your new baby should really try and emulate. Maybe you should take this as more of a motivational critique, maybe if you worked with him a little more, maybe teach him a few tricks, I don't know.

    You know what, Oscar is fine. Don't worry about it. I hope the new baby drools like Oscar. There, is that better?

  21. Since this is the first time I have crossed the threshold of this blog I can not be a loyal reader, yet I too have received the blessing of the information therein contained. To balance the blessing/sacrifice scale should I now review past posts and do what a loyal reader would have done? Joy health and prosperity to all.

  22. Triathlon, Senate Convention, new baby... I think there is time if we want to sneak in a wedding or reroof my house. Let me know.

    Congratulations. Will you name her after me?

  23. This is a big deal. 5 is a big number. I'll plan a trip to NY (sometime after the election and triathlon). How's Gabby feeling? What do all the other Blair kids say? I bet it makes you fit right in with the NY culture to be expecting #5.

  24. Dell, yes, you may need to balance out your blessings with sacrifice, and probably the best way to do that is to read all the other posts and comments.
