After 36 hours of labor, our son Burl Augustus Ek was born Friday night, 3/21/08 spring equinox, at 10:31pm.
He weighed 9 lbs 10 oz. and was 22 1/2 inches long. He has thick black hair, beautiful clear skin, pink lips, long toes and fingers, and a very cute voice. He's easy going, healthy and a champion nurser.
A Burl is a type of wood, an offshoot of a tree, a redwood tree. Redwood trees have special meaning to both Alex and I
