Spencer’s Home ;)

We are now a family of six… It has been a fun week, as we begin to adjust to life with four children all five and under. Jill tells me she’ll be able to survive my returning to work on Monday – I hope she’s right ;)

UCLA won?

April 5th, 2006 No comments

I got a good laugh out of an email I received *before* the NCAA championship was played out. The subject of the email was “[placeholder for winning team] Wins the NCAA Tournament!” And the body of it contained the following words:

UCLA Wins!

Congratulations, [placeholder for winning team]! As someone who has purchased sports products from, we thought you should be the first to see our selection of NCAA championship products.

I received the above email at 7:43 AM on April 3rd… Nice snafu for Amazon ;)

Also just found the following article on ABC news about it:

Welcome Spencer Griffin Giles

April 4th, 2006 2 comments

Our fourth child, third boy, arrived at 2:27 in the afternoon yesterday. Everything went well – and mother and baby boy are both doing great. Spencer seems to have taken after his parents — taller than all our others (21″), and also weighing in at the lowest of the four (7lbs 6oz). He is sure cute, and has the longest little feet and toes.

We are very excited, as are our kids. When I called home to report to Michael (our oldest at 5 years of age) he started jumping up and down cheering when I told him we had named him Spencer! He has a friend in pre-school named Spencer, and had been the strongest advocate for the name. He also told me how he got to announce to his preschool that morning that his “mommy was going to have a baby today” and that it was going to be named Spencer.

I’d better head back to the hospital ;) Time to pick up Spencer and Jill and bring them home. I guess we’re going to find out what life is like with four children. Should be fun!
