It's a Boy!!!

I love being surprised when a new baby is delivered.  Our newest grandson arrived in the wee hours of the morning to the delight of all.  Mom, baby and siblings are all doing well. 

Please pardon the picture that I am showing, but it was one of those "what were you thinking" moments.  I charged the battery yesterday in anticipation that she would not be returning from her doctor's appointment.  I grabbed the camera and started shooting.  Within seven shots I got the message of no room in the memory.  What??????  I had forgotten to put the memory card back into the camera.  Brilliant!!!!  So....the trusty phone had to do, but I will get better pictures when I go up to the hospital later today.




They have recently finished a remodel in the hospital and it is wonderful - private rooms for all.  There was one wall as you entered the OB department that had the most adorable quilt hanging on it.  Again, the picture is not great and there is a glare from the overhead lighting, but I thought it was adorable.  What do you think???  Is it perfect or what????


I'll try to get a better picture of it too as the details were precious.  Soooo cute!

  37. He is a beautiful baby!!! Yes, It is so much fun to be surprised when they are born. You will enjoy rocking him and smelling that sweet baby smell. So glad both he and mom are doing well.

    Just 4 more days and we will be heading out for OR! Guess I should drag out the suitcases! I found a nice black dress on the sale rack at Chico's last week for the dressy night. It's not that dressy but it will be fine.

    See you soon! Love to you and E! xoxox
