His first name, Gibson, isn't after anyone - just a name his Mama and Daddy chose especially for him. It was a while after he was born before he received his name, as they were hashing it out even after he arrived. I don't know what his sanctioned nicknames will be, except for perhaps Branch, which he's been called for several months (another branch on the family tree) but I've taken to calling him Gib, Gibby, and the Gibber. These may all be contraband. I don't know. But it's a name that lends itself to cool nicknames, for sure. His middle name is a family name - my grandfather's name was Edward Ellett. Ellett was his mother's maiden name. Her family helped to found Ellettsville, Indiana.
Of course, relying on others to send me photos, here are some photos of the new little guy with my Indiana family:
This is the only one so far where I see some resemblance to his cousin LM
Here he looks JUST like his dad.

Veda, Deacon, Cora with their new brother!
Nana with another new grandbaby.
Grandpa and Torchy checking out the babe.
Uncle Bob and cousin Amber.
I think it's funny Gibson already has his eye on Uncle Bob.
Smart kid. ;-)
Bevi and Unk stopped by too!
Cool Man Gib.
It's like he's saying, "Enough with the photos!"
The three boys.
And, my brother Steve with a look on his face that looks like HIS dad.
The four kids, dad looking on.

The whole beautiful family.
So there you have it! Our latest baby! As I said, I'm dying to meet him in person. It won't be long.
See you soon!
See you soon!
