Off-Topic: At 5 Weeks, Baby Ethan Is Yummy!

By Adam Pick on May 12, 2009

Thank you for all the wonderful notes regarding the birth of our son, Ethan.

Robyn (my wife) and I wanted to give you a quick update… Ethan is doing great!!! On Saturday, Ethan entered his fifth week of life. And, on Sunday, we celebrated Robyn’s first Mother’s Day.

As Ethan is our first child, we have quickly learned how wonderful it is to be parents. Yes, Robyn and I are very tired. Yes, we’re pee’d on regularly. Yes, he’s pooped on us. And… Yes, I’ve had the joy of “spit-up” splattering the side of my face several times. But, all it takes is one look from Ethan and all that discomfort becomes comfortable.

Here are some of the latest pictures we’ve taken of our little man.

Again, thanks for all your thoughtful notes, comments and emails regarding Ethan!!!

Keep on tickin!
Adam

That is the cutest baby! Where did he get all that hair! I see a movie career in his future, you guys. Mazel tov, it’s just wonderful. 🙂

Adam,
Your son Ethan looks like a “clone” of his daddy! I bet if you look at some your baby pictures & compare them to these you will be amazed. Belated Happy Mother’s Day to Robyn & the men in her life!
Thanks again for all you do for all of us.

He looks like he’ll become a heart surgeon! Let us know, Adam… about 25 years from now, when he’s in med school, and all our valves are still working well! 🙂

Thanks Leslie and Debbie!!!

Carol… How did you know that is exactly what we’ve been doing? Holding all of our old baby pictures right up to Ethan. On the whole, we think he’s a good blend of the two of us… He definitely has Robyn’s nose and my hair. 🙂

To Sean,

Let’s talk in 25 years… I’m curious to see how Ethan navigates through life. Whatever he choses, I’ll support – as long as it’s legal. 🙂

Keep on tickin!

Adam
