Ezra Jubal Thornton



was born at 3:07 am on Thursday June 19th just as the full moon was exactly overhead! He was born on his cousin Hadley's birthday, the full moon, and the beginning of summer solstice. He weighed 8.48 pounds and was 54cm long.


Ezra has some respritory complications and has to be in the NICU in Austin for awhile--we don't know when he will get to come home but he is doing really well and slowly being weaned from the machines that are helping him. We are staying at the Ronald McDonald house nearby and spending time with him whenever we can. Murv is already reading books and the paper to him...We can't wait to get to hold him! Keep him in your prayers...


thank you for all your support!



look at that big strapping chest! He is beautiful!
