My newest grandson, Thomas - relaxing after his sweet, gentle 25 hr. home birth!
Her other two are very blond, like their Mom - but this one looks like he may favor
his dark-headed Dad. A brownie and two blondies. Perfect :)
Big brother, Cooper, holding his hours old baby brother.
Doesn't he look happy...and proud? (As if he had
anything to do with it...)
My daughter, the Mom, with Cooper, Adeline, and baby Thomas. I love how delighted big brother and sister look!
And doesn't Brite look amazing for having just birthed a baby ?!
She does not get that from me. I am HHM (high, high maintenance) and need lots of solitary rest and recuperation time (especially prior to photographs.)
Well, now that GrandBaby #3 is "out", we can move on to preparing for GrandBaby #4. My younger daughters and I took off for Savannah the morning after Thomas' birth in order to attend a baby shower for Jacqueline. This is only the second time I've seen her during this pregnancy. She was glowing! Pregnancy obviously agrees with her. We took this picture to send to her husband, who is deployed. He enjoys getting frequent pictorial updates of his wife and his "basketball".
The table was beautiful, the food was yummy - and Elijah even had his name on a plate.
I can't get the text to stay up by the other pictures (one weekend away and I've forgotten how to blog!!!), but one is obviously Jacqueline holding some hand-made bags; one to put her dirty cloth diapers in, and the other to hold hand-made wipes. (Gotta love the optimism of first-time moms! And no, she doesn't get that from me, either...)
The next to the last picture is of me (purposely trying to look fat so as not to make my daughter feel bad...) and her skinny, athletic, young-looking mother-in-law, Gina. She, and four of her daughters, drove 8 hours to come for one night of celebration - so we had to make it worth their while by staying up until 2 a.m. watching a Chick Flick and eating nachos and ice cream. The sacrifices mothers continue to make for their grown daughters!!
