The JOY of a Grandson

On Friday afternoon, with grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, and uncles present and anxiously waiting, Slaid Daniel made his debut.  
Our first grandson!!  He’s a tiny little thing!!  Weighing in at 6 pounds 8 ounces, he stole all our hearts.  Smallest baby in our family for sure.  My kids weighed 8-9 1/2 pounds, so this was definitely a new thing for us.  Three weeks early, but healthy and ready to be here.  

After a long night and day, he is finally here.  Dad proud of son and Pappo proud of son and grandson.  I just love my guys!!

Love this picture of my four boys in such awe of this little blessing!! 

Nanny lovin on that baby!!

 Loren came to visit!!  Pretty amazing having grandkids together after all these years!!

Adam and Isaac made him an oversized beanie to wear home!!   The hospital nursery nurse asked them if they would start making them for all the babies, how exciting!!

 Two days old and already changing so much.  He’s home and weighing in at 5 pounds 13 ounces.  

It is truly amazing to witness the JOY of a baby, knowing the Lord has a plan for his life and now being able to watch it play out.  I can’t wait to see how the Lord uses Slaid for His purpose!!

I sure hope your weekend was filled with lots of JOY!!
Counting it all Joy!!

You will never be the same. With the coming of grandchildren, comes the opening of a reservoir in the heart reserved just for them.

It still catches my breath to remember the birth of our first, and second, and third .... and just this June, the seventh! It never gets old.

What a beautiful little guy is your Slaid. Every newborn should be so treasured as is he.

OMGosh Angel! Amazingly beautiful that grandbaby boy of yours. He is precious. So itty bitty but I love it. Mine were always so big. LOL
Love the hats the boys made and what an honor to be asked to make them for the babies. So cool.
Congrats to your family.
