New Grandbaby!

Well our first little grand son has finally made his appearance! He's an 8 lb. 5 oz., 21" long, chubby cheek little beauty! I am so amazed at how alert he is. This picture was taken when he was 2 hours old and behind the nursery glass... can't wait to hold him in my arms and spoil him rotten!

This little darlin' took quite an effort to arrive. And when it finally came time to deliver, my daughter pushed 6 times.... doc came in and checked her and all of a sudden she was not dilated to 10 like she was a few minutes before!

Short story... what our little acrobat did was say, nuh uh no way am I coming out... did a 180 and turned himself breech! I've never heard of such a thing! Needless to say, things got crazy in a hurry and a C section quickly ensued.

But everyone is okay now and thanks to our Heavenly Father and modern medicine, they are both safe and sound! Praise the Lord!



The picture below was taken July 8 - he's down to 7 lb. 13 oz. They always lose a little weight before coming home. A lot of his swelling has gone down! Looks like he already has a tan! :o)
He is so darn alert and follows you around with his eyes! And oops, looks like his teensy finger nails got to his 'lil cheeky before being clipped.
