I had a chance to chat with Rebekah Wells today for a couple minutes. It was really nice and the new addition has arrived. For those of you who did not have the chance to meet the Wells they were the other family living at the Palmer compound. They recently moved to Utah. Rebekah seems to be doing really well. She sounded happy and excited.Here are some pictures and I will also post an e-mail that she sent me. If you want to contact her her e-mail is
Caleb Christopher Wells
Born Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 11:19 p.m. (Thank you, Caleb, for arriving on your due date!)
7 lbs 15 oz, 21 inches long
It was an easy labor and delivery (I had no idea I was in labor). Chris convinced me to go to the hospital anyway. Good thing-- I was already at a 7. Whoops! Once they broke my water, it didn't take long for Caleb to show up!
We are all doing well. Caleb is a cutie. He has dimples (you can't see them in the photos-- they only show up if he's really mad or smiling really big). And he has light brown hair with patches of white-blonde (definitely from Chris). I hope to catch those dimples on film soon. He is also extremely strong. He rolls himself on his side when you put him down and his legs, despite their scrawny appearance, are extremely strong. The nurse today said he was, "the strongest baby she has ever encountered" and broke into a sweat trying to get a blood sample from him. (:
I haven't shared the news with the Hawaii friends, so please feel free to forward at will. I need to get updated contact info from everyone...
