And Baby Makes Three
The long anticipated arrival of our grandson went off without a hitch yesterday. Well, the doctor was running late (they always are, I told our son!), so baby's birth was about an hour later than anticipated.
And he is healthy and whole, though his legs and toes were a bit purple from being folded up by his head for so long; he has a little flat spot where his head was wedged too. He weighed just under 7 lbs and was about 20 inches long. Ashley did great during the C-section and our son was thrilled that baby Dane looks so much like him. The family has been sending us little video updates on a new app we downloaded called MarcoPolo. It has been fun to interact within our family group and see Dane become accustomed to being outside the womb :)
Here with Mama...
And Daddy :) He's feeding well and had perfect hearing.
Eyes open now and then! Can't tell what color they will be yet, of course.
This is our son Nick when he was about a week old. Pretty similar! Can't wait to meet baby Dane in person. We went and got our COVID testing today, and will get flu shots in a couple of days. Meanwhile I still didn't completely finish the cushion covers for Ashley's glider. Only the closures left to wrangle into submission, which I will get done tomorrow without too much drama, I hope.
Sliver of moon was visible at sunset. The smoke from county fires has cleared a bit so we can see regular clouds in the southeast. Coincidentally, Nick was also born in August during a fire :)
