Hello family and friends!
It is with great joy and surprise that we announce to those of you that
don't already know, the sudden arrival of the latest Hooker. Ian
Elkin Hooker was first brought to our attention about 100 minutes
before he was born on Monday, March 27th at 9:06 AM. We deliberated
for a full 30 seconds before saying an enthusiastic "Yes!" to the
hospital. We met him and brought him home with us on Tuesday afternoon.
It's been a whirlwind to say the least, but not too difficult an
adjustment so far. He was born 7lbs 8oz with brown hair. Alec seems
to like him just fine. He wants to get close to him and pat Ian gently.
Love to all of you,
Eric, Elaine, Alec and Ian
