Take 2

Family photo in our nice clothes. Our only other family picture was in the hospital.

Here is Ethan in the adorable overalls Aunt Judy sent him. He's still on the small end of the clothes weighing in at 8.5 lbs.

On a nice, overcast day, what do my kids ask me for? Freezer pops! Here they are eating them together on the bench outside my bedroom window. Cosette and Isaac really do like each other.

Ethan with Grandma Jo - Rob's Mom.
Ethan got to ride an airplane at 13 days old (with doctor's permission). This picture is Ethan on the airplane Sunday (15 days old).

Rob's new look.
Cosette was quite the help in the kitchen. Here she is putting brown sugar on the sweet potatos sliced lengthwise.

Our New Home

Here is our new home in Pocatello Idaho. It is a beautiful home that we are excited to move into. We have added a few pictures for your viewing pleasure.

This is the newly remodeled kitchen, all appliances stay with the house. The counter tops are black granite and yes that is a hard wood floor.

This is the main floor living room

This is the basement living room

Part of our back yard. Just beyond the tree on the right side of this picture is a large playground and a city park. If we had a picture of it you would see a hot tub on the left sitting on the patio. What a great place.

We are moving December 27Th to Pocatello, Idaho.

The Kids

Here we have Cosette, Isaac, and Ethan the day after we came home from the hospital. Both of Ethan's older siblings love him to pieces. And, if we don't watch them, they will love him to pieces. Cosette is pretty good about not playing rough around Ethan and rocking his bassinet softly.

Isaac, on the other hand, is ready to have a little brother to play rough with. He is quite sweet though when it comes to giving Ethan hugs and kisses. Isaac loves to hold Ethan on his lap too.

As you can see...Isaac thinks the bassinet is a great place to relax.

Isaac is having the hardest time adjusting, but I think Mom is having a hard time adjusting to not cuddling with Isaac too. This hat (crocheted by Aunt Chris) has become his favorite thing to wear.

Now the other news

As some of you know Rob was looking for a new job opportunity in the field of education leadership. He has looked and applied at several places in southern California only to be let down because of lack of experience. We ll he now has a wonderful opportunity to run the Deaf Services Program at Idaho State University in Pocatello Idaho. He went to visit the campus this last week and was hired for the position. It is a great campus with very nice people. We plan to move between Christmas and New Years and he starts his position on January 7Th.

Yes you read that correctly, we are moving to Idaho. Yes we know it is cold there and it snows and yes there are fewer people, and yes we know the potential for hitting a cow in the road. We are very excited for our future, we can finally afford to buy a house with a big yard and a white picket fence with 2.5 children, well I guess the American dream must now include the third child. This is the beginning of the rest of our lives.

Baby blessing date

We are planning on blessing Ethan on Dec 2nd. In light of other news this will be the best time to do that. All are welcome to attend.We will be having a get together after the blessing at our place after the block of services.

We're Home!!

We came home today and are doing well. Emma gets around gingerly, but gets around. Thanks to everyone that had us in their prayers. Ethan is much smaller than our first two children by a pound at least. He is eating well and sleeping well and we all know what happens when baby eats and sleeps...there is only one other function left. Yup, your right...he poops!

Here is Robert teaching Ethan about Boise State, notice he is wearing a UCLA hat too. What a confused daddy! This picture was taken as we were being discharged from the hospital.

The Wood family has a new addition. Ethan Edward Wood was born on November 3, 2007 at 11:36 am. He is 7 lbs 15 oz and 21.5 inches long. He has brown hair and so far VERY calm. Ethan had a few complications with the labor and was not able to come out the conventional way so an emergency c-section was put into process. Mom and baby are doing great and well on their way to recovering from this scary event. Emma will be released from the hospital no earlier than Tuesday November 6. She is at Kaiser Permanente in Fontana so feel free to call or stop by for a visit. She would love the company.
