He was born on Monday, October 4, at 5:37 PM. He weighed 8 pounds, 1 ounce, and was 21 inches long.
This is my firstborn. I’m amazed at his cuteness…I can’t stop staring at him. (Click the picture to the right for a closer look. I bet you can’t close it once you open it.) 🙂
Words can’t expressed how thrilled my wife Pam and I are. He’s simply incredible.

- Ben Gortmaker – Ben guessed 8 lbs, 1 oz. (Owen’s exact weight!)
A Tale of Two Bens
Funny story. I happen to know both of these Bens personally. I sang in Ben #1’s wedding, and Ben #2 played guitar at my wedding. [Disclaimer: Neither of them had any insider information as to when the baby would be born. They knew everything you did.]
Thanks to everybody for your prayers and well-wishes. I’m sure Owen will make his way into many HSC articles and videos in the future. 🙂
