The best news we can share is the birth of our first baby Jaxon Ethan Thiele. He was born on Halloween at 11:58 p.m. He weighed 10 lbs 3 oz and was 20.5 inches. He is 5 weeks old now and has grown to 12 lbs 10.5 oz. Liz has been on leave from work since late Oct. and I have been fortunate to take time off work periodically. It has been great to have Jaxon in our home, he has changed our lives for the better and we are so grateful for him. Jaxon's been able to see one of his Grandpa's, both of his Grandma's and one of his many uncles. He didn't get to celebrate Halloween too much this year (he was a little busy getting cleaned up by the nurses). But we still got him to wear his halloween outfit a few days latter.
