Uncle Eric

Wholly by chance, the very morning we welcomed our little Zane into the family, my dad and brother had set off to come visit us here in Indiana. My brother Eric is moving to Boston so they thought they'd come have some fun before the baby came. Well, plans changed, and they arrived the day after Zane was born. The Dowdle Men have been a huge help cleaning up the house, entertaining the kids, bonding with baby, and generally loving us up during the big transition. They left this morning, and I will admit I was more than a little teary to see them go. The good news is that everyone already made plans to come visit in 11 days -- to work around Zane's supposed arrival date -- so we'll get to have them back again soon.
(Uncle Eric took a vow of non-shaving for the trip. Zoe and Jed were amazed by his "cheek spikes.")
(Hi Zane!)
