52Birth-BardEric and Heidi Bard of Twisp announce the birth of their son, Uli Carru Bard, on March 6, 2013.

His brothers, Owen and Jasper, looked forward to his birth for months, and joyfully greeted him with open arms and lots of hugs. He is welcomed by his grandparents, Molly and Bud Bard of Seattle and Ron and Sigrid Hobbs of Carson City, Nev.

If he is not snuggling with his mama, walking in the sling with his papa or smiling at his brothers, he is cooing at Fred and Patty of Methow.
