We are proud and excited to announce the arrival of our newest family member: Beckett McCain Britt-Webb. Beckett was born at 9:29am on 5/29/08. He weighed in at 6 lbs, 15 oz and measured 19 inches long.

Special thanks to Cousin Lexi (and Aunt Reenie) for her inspiration in picking his first name, Beckett. And his middle name, McCain, is in honor of Grandma the Great, Elizabeth (McCain) Harris (see her memorial here).

See the slideshow below, as well as the videos from our YouTube account.

If you really want the play-by-play account of the birth and aftermath, read Erik’s Twitter posts at the bottom of this page.
