Five for June 3rd:
George Picker. Our amazing son was born last Wednesday, May 27th, clocking in at 21” and almost 9 lbs following a very quick, issue-free delivery. Full head of hair just like his sister. He rules, and I can't wait to watch him grow up.
Jane. She is proving to be a great big sister already; super sweet with George and helping Lisa out with taking care of him any chance she gets. She’s also not falling into any of the weird sibling regressions we kept hearing about (at least nothing serious), which is a huge relief.
Lisa. There are few things in the world that can be more taxing than being the mother of a newborn, but Lisa handles it with a level of love, patience and stamina that I can hardly imagine. Best mom and overall human being ever.
Cool stuff. Dear Skating H-Street team shirts, Merritt Trifecta BMX multi-tool, Santa Cruz Eric Dressen deck, new issue of Thrasher (with sticker sheet), taking Jane to Turtle Park, pair of kid-sized Adirondack chairs and Target gift card from my rad coworkers, Rolling Stones Brown Sugar alternate take, evening curb sesh at Deer Creek.
Thank-you's. Doris for watching Jane for a few days, various family and friends for making/bringing food, Denise for taking care of a ton of my work while I was out, Anna and Allison for taking Jane to the botanical garden when we needed a break, Brian Scheffer for fixing up my e-drums for $20, the superb staff at MoBap, and everyone else for the well-wishes and good vibes.
