Happy Birthday Calvin!

Calvin McDowell Conard was born at the University of Washington Medical Center at 11:03PM on 29-Sept-2010 to proud parents Joel and Emily Conard.

He tipped the scales at 7 pounds, 14 oz, and was 20 inches long.  He is happy and healthy, and Emily is recovering nicely from the unplanned cesarean section.

We planted some bamboo in the back yard to give us some visual separation from our neighbors to the north.  Bamboo, as you know, grows fast, so it’ll be interesting to see just how fast.

We did go through the effort of installing a root barrier to keep the bamboo from spreading beyond its container.

Home Improvements

For those that are interested in what sort of home improvements we’re up to, I added a “House” category (to the right).  We’ll post occasional home updates here and categorize them as House.
