Beckett McCain's first interview

This is a 1 minute clip of Beckett’s first interview, taken on June 3rd, when he was just 5 days old.


Announcing Beckett McCain Britt-Webb

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.

Laurel's Baby Shower

I am pleased to report that the surprise baby shower for Laurel was a huge success! Laurel was mostly surprised, meaning that while she had her usual sixth sense that something was going to happen, she didn’t know for sure and was completely surprise by how many turned out.

We enjoyed the wonderful company of about 25 of Laurel’s lady friends, along with another 10 family members. Thanks for everyone who turned out. Special thanks to Noreen and Lexi for organizing and hosting the event, and to Del for helping to bake the yummy desserts.

Family dynamics -- use of information to mature the substance of debates

Read a fun article today by Kerry Patterson, one of the authors at VitalSmarts, who gave us Crucial Conversations and Crucial Confrontations. In a nutshell, he highlights how the easy access to information on the Internet has helped his family mature their family arguments from pure opinions about things that are often silly and inconsequential to topics of much more consequence.
