Rob informed me that Alma was due around June 29. Thus, I flew to San Francisco on June 25 to the home of Alma and Rob’s family in Mountain View. However, Ezra was having none of it. So…, we waited. And waited some more. All the while I am trying to capture the anticipation, worry and excitement of this long over due moment.
Finally, on July 6 Ezra (at this point he was not given the choice) joined us. Ezra was not wasting time either. He arrived tipping the scale at 10+ lbs. The excitement and privelege of being able to document this most sacred of milestones in the life of a family is always something I treasure.
