Our Newest Treasure

....As you already know, yesterday was an exciting day in our lives. We have a brand new grandson to love.
..............And here he is.......................our newest treasure!!
Isn’t he beautiful?
I posted his vital statistics yesterday so you know all of that or can scan back and check them out if you’d like. Mommy and daddy are on cloud nine. You should see the smiles on their faces – almost as big as the smiles on grandparents’ faces. Sarah’s parents and Harry and I were at the hospital to welcome the little guy. The other grandparents (Buddy’s mother and step-father) will meet him is a few days. It’s a beautiful world for this family.

I believe daddy will be OK. He played an active part in this miracle all the way to being at the birth and giving Baby his first bath. What a wonderful little family they make.

Sarah was ready to hold and coo to Baby Hooper as soon as she was out of recovery following the C-Section. The time waiting seemed like forever but it was just over an hour. Can't you see the love flowing from mother to baby?

Sarah is up and moving this morning. All the IV’s and various hook-ups are gone. The C-Section didn't slow her down at all. We're so happy that she’s feeling well. Baby is happy and hungry. Buddy is still beaming even after changing a bad diaper this morning. Yep, they are gonna be just fine.

Three little boys and one little girl – how perfect is that? We are truly blessed.

He's simply beautiful, Mary. I love how C-section baby's are so round. :) Sarah and Buddy are just glowing, too. What a blessed event for you and your family! Enjoy this time.

I never had a c-section ...even though I did beg a few times. :)

He is totally gorgeous! Looks just like my babies did. perfect amount of hair, perfect head, beautiful!!

I'm so happy for all of you.

They have a saying in the south "every old crow thinks it's crow is the blackest"

Well, that's funny and all, and believe me...sometimes it really does apply ,here.

But my "crow's WERE the blackest " and so is Hooper!!!

WOO HOOO granny!

Thank you to everyone for humoring an old Nana. I just had to show him off and brag just a bit.

I really appreciate your comments.

Such pure joy ... that's what that is, a picture of joy.

I couldn't be any happier for you, and I cannot wait for the day I can say that I have a grandchild too.

Yes, you all are blessed. And that makes me happy.

As a side note, two days after he was born, his great grandfather passed away.

This man had come up through some hard times. He served his country in WW2. He married a beautiful young bride. He worked hard and raised two children. They were inseparable until two years ago she passed away. Thursday he joined her.

One day we rejoice, and then the next day we mourn and grieve.

I reflected on this yesterday and was reminded that for all of us this is the path we must trod. This is the way it has always been and the way it always will be. The green leaf that buds this spring will fall to the ground this autumn.

He is perfection Mary.

I'm sorry to hear about his great grandfather though.
