Awake and Aware

As I get older, I'm amazed at how quickly life speeds by.

Next Tuesday, the baby boy will be two weeks old.
He and his mama are home, and he's already gaining well.
Big sister is being so sweet, she takes care of her baby dolls while mama takes care of little brother.

It just seems like yesterday that he was one day old.
In fact, it seems not much longer since his big sister was a newborn.
Time is funny - it compresses and expands in amazing ways.
Right now, I just try to enjoy every bit of it.
Thanks for all the good wishes!
You are great friends, and much appreciated.

A Little Man

We have had a busy week here in Central Louisiana.
On Tuesday, my daughter had her baby boy.
has joined the world.
He and his mother are well and home from the hospital.
Big sister is doing well, too.
And his daddy is a wonderful guy, taking care of everybody!
Things are getting a little back to the usual schedule now,
since we brought baby brother home on Wednesday.
He weighed 7 lbs 1 ounce at birth, 21 inches long.
And he's already almost back to his birth weight. 

I know I've been pretty absent here, life things have been keeping me super occupied elsewhere. You can imagine, I'm sure!

But my new resolution is to be here on the blog more now, while still taking a few times out for enjoying the growing family.
