Extra!! Extra!! Another Precious Little One to Spoil

I just had to add these pictures. These were taken Thursday, baby Nathan is 1 day old.
Mom and baby. First family portrait with new baby.
And of course, me and my precious grandsons. Awww, look at the baby, he is yawning!
I can't wait for AJ to come this weekend so I can have a picture with all 3 of them. AJ is the daughter of my older daughter.


As some of you may know, I arrived in Florida last Sunday to welcome the arrival of my grandson. My daughter took me shopping 2 days in a row. Today, we could not go shopping because she went into labor last night and gave birth at 6:13 AM this morning. I took this picture of her while she was driving yesterday so this is her last picture with the baby still inside her. Meet baby Nathan Lawrence! He was 7 lbs. 15 oz in weight and 20 inches long at birth. My daughter is very petite, only 5 ft in height and the baby seems quite big for her. I am very thankful that both her and baby are doing very well.
There were some red splotches on the baby's face at first but disappeared after a few minutes.
Doesn't he just look like a toughie? LOL
Isn't he just a darling? So sweet! I just love babies when they are sleeping. They look like angels. (not a toughie anymore, lol). Of course, I love them too when they are awake.
And here is big brother. He was kinda shy at first, could not go close to the baby but did after a while. Sorry for the blurred picture. I just could not delete it. It is such a precious moment.

and there is proud daddy with his 2 boys.


and proud grandma with brand new grandson.


I had a great time watching big brother tonight. We watched Scooby-Doo and practiced writing his name. Thanks for coming by and I am so happy to share this wonderful moment with you all. I am just so happy that mom and baby are both healthy and doing great.

Sooo very sweet! Another beautiful blessing added to your family. I'd just want to hold him and not put him down :o) That's great that you took the last photo with her "belly bump" of Nathan :o) Wow! He was a big baby, especially since she is so petite.
