Safari Baby

Holden loves being a safari baby!

Here Holden hangs out with his favorite jungle animal...Elmo the Elephant!

Holden loves getting all bundled up to go outside into the cold Montana weather on walks with his mom. Thanks Katy and Joe for the warm REI outfit!

Holden Adjusting to Life at Home

Papa Jim giving Holden a gentle kiss.

Always precious when he's sleeping.

Holden doesn't mind the view of the house from upside down.

Lounging in nothing but a hat and a blanket made by Bonnie Zimmerman!

Holden has lots of big brothers and sisters on the UGF track team! Thanks Janie and the McCauley family for the duck flower arrangement that Cameron is holding!

HOLDEN IS HERE! Welcome little guy!

HOLDEN STONE BREWER arrived at 12:05 p.m. Montana time today (on his due date and Groundhog Day), a healthy 8 lb., 8 oz., and 22 inches long. Mom was a trooper to say the least.

His parents are absolutely overjoyed and so is everybody else (this is Auntie Janie here as fill-in blogger until the new family gets home and settled ... more pictures to follow soon!). ... A couple of cute comments from the new, proud mom and dad about their handsome little fella.

"This is the most amazing thing I've ever experienced in my life," happy papa Jim told The Associated Press in an emotional phone interview about an hour after Holden entered the world. "He came out screaming and pooping." :-) (After everything this little guy went through, who could blame him, right?).

Said the beautiful, thrilled new mama: "This is so special. He's got a lot of curly hair. I'm not going to know how to tame it, but little Evan has curly hair, so I'll ask Holly. Jim has curly hair and we cut it short. He has a button nose and big blue eyes like his daddy."

No word yet on when Holden will go on his first run (in the stroller to start, of course). We're guessing by the weekend!
