    Woo hoo! Congratulations and blessings all around. Oh, such joy! I do have a thing for red-haired boys.
    This is one of the things I love about blogging. The honor of getting to be over-the-moon happy for people you don't know. Big smiles in Maryland, for you, Owen. Welcome to the world.


    I'm all smiles here in Illinois as well! Congratulations and best wishes to the whole family! Most especially to lil Owen!



    congratulations!! =]


    I love that name! What a good idea, blending two names together as well. Congrats Erin and Matthew! And thank you two for making the blogosphere smile broadly today. I've been grinning like a damn fool ever since I heard!

    BTW um... I don't think I've ever heard of a newborn being compared to unwashed fruit, but now that I think about it, it does make sense. A little. Mine looked a little bit like baby monkeys... I don't know why the girls get so mad at me when I bring it up.

    Hugs and congrats to you and your family, Nils. And here's a toast to the next chapter in your lives and the best journey, yet. :)


    Congrats! Owen is a great name.

    When I was awaiting news on the birth of my first grandchild, a friend tried to explain what it would be like. After struggling, he shrugged and said, "when it happens you will understand why I could not explain."

    'My world exploded' comes close. Congrats - it will only get better (as hard as that is to believe right now.

    Another circle has been closed, and life unfolds as it is meant to.


    I have never, ever seen Dad use that many exclamation points. He must be excited!!!!! :)

    Congrats to the whole family on your new addition. Very exciting news!


    Congratulations! I'm so pleased for you so you know that over here we're grinning like idiots too. Oh and I used so many exclamation points in my e-mail to you that the filters thought I was telling you that you'd won the lottery and bounced it back. I imagine you're feeling rather like you *did* win the lottery! :)


    Congratulations to the whole Family, especially Erin who did all the labor part.




    I was felled by a migraine this weekend and am just now getting up and around to checking on things. Glad I did. October is a great month to be born in. With a grandson you'll get to experience the "other" kind of baby. The kind (as Lily Tomlin says) who makes you have to lean WAAAY BACK when you change their diaper. So glad things went well. Congratulations all around!


    I KNEW it!! So happy for all of you, but especially Owen. That little man has won the lottery!
