Baby update

The new baby has been home since Monday and he's doing very well. He's eating like crazy, which as you might expect, results in lots of lots of dirty diapers. He's sleeping pretty well, but Vicki and I are still exhausted. Ellie is a great big sister and has been very helpful.

We decided to name him James Tristan Ramsey. We knew we were going to name him "James" for my dad, who wanted us to continue the tradition -- the new baby is the fourth James Ramsey. The middle name is from the character in the book All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot. It's a book I've loved since I was a kid and my favorite character in it was named "Tristan."

We're still trying to figure out exactly what we're going to call him on a day-to-day basis. My mom and sister call him "Jamie", Ellie calls him "Baby James", I've been calling him "Tris" or "Tristan", and Vicki's been calling him "Triscuit." I think we'll just figure it out as we go along.
