Hello everyone and Happy Friday. I had to share the above picture because it is my newest Grandson. I caught him smiling when I was waiting for the nurse to come give my daughter her discharge papers. I couldn't resist but to share it with you. Nothing makes my day more then a baby and puppy dogs. I mean seriously how can not smile at this picture. I know it might be gas but it might not but either way it is a smile and it is precious.
So I missed Wednesday Hodgepodge because well to be honest when I got home all I wanted to do was to hold my little guy. It feels so great to have a baby in the house again. They make the world right for a moment. And now for all of the Stats on this little fella as promised to some of my regular readers request.
We got to welcome Christian Phoenix into the world on July 19 at 4:13 p.m. and he weighed in at 7lb 2.6 oz and a whooping 20 1/2 inches long with a head full of hair. My daughter got an epidural once we got to the hospital and he decided at that time he was comfortable and didn't want to come out so we have to get them to give her pitocin to make him join us. She didn't have to push very long and he was born. She did an excellent job. He is perfect in every sense of the word and I couldn't be more proud.
He is like most newborns and wakes up every couple of hours for feeding but other then that not a sound one out of him. He is already lifting up his head and I keep telling him he isn't suppose to be doing that but it doesn't matter babies do what babies do regardless of our thoughts or opinions.
I was glad to see that his daddy was able to be here for the delivery. That meant so much to my daughter. He lives in Texas and she moved back up here with me during her pregnancy so she had a support system in case anything was needed or happened. As for her moving back to Texas I sure hope she doesn't but only time will tell.
He was born on Saturday and daddy had to leave to go back on Tuesday and my daughter got some really great photos of him with the baby at the airport and one of them together. Oh I almost forgot to mention that her birthday was on the 22nd so he came 4 days before her birthday. What a present to have.
So thank you for stopping by and I hope you all have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend. I will be enjoying my snuggle bug when I get home.
