welcome zach

On Sunday morning, my sister-in-law and her husband welcomed their second son into the world.

Behold the beauty that is Zachary Willard Webb:














Zach's big brother Alex came to the hospital to meet him. Look how gently he is reaching out to touch his baby brother. Look how tightly he's holding on to his granddad's finger. From what I understand, Alex is still quite firm in his conviction that he will not be sharing his Thomas the Tank train with Zach any time soon!!


Uncle Tom was singularly impressed with the fact that of all the football Sundays Zach could have been born on, he chose last Sunday, which was the Colts' bye week. The Webb's are from IN and by default are Colts fans, although I suspect that Mama Webb secretly roots for the Giants since she is and always will be a Jersey girl.


We will get to meet Zach at Christmastime when he and his big brother and parents will drive out to NJ. At which time Aunt Jen will once again have to supress those urges to run right home and get pregnant!!

Nope, no C.

He is a pretty good looking boy, if I do say so myself.

What a cutie!! Congrats, Aunt Jen!

I'm delighted that, while he may not be rooting for the same team as I, Zach is already rearranging his life around football. Play ball, baby!

I'm assuming he's named for Zach Thomas...the Dolphins' middle linebacker...even though there was a reference to the Colts.

He's beautiful! I love the wide open-eyed pictures you can get of newborns. It's like they're just as amazed as you are, just for different reasons. Gorgeous boy, and sweet, sweet big brother!
