Welcome, Carson Edward!

Carson Edward has arrived!
Born Thursday, August 21, 2014 at 10:17p
9lbs. 8oz.
21.5 inches long

The very long wait this week was worth it!

Carson is very alert!
I got to hold him, snuggle and rock him.


He started fussing a bit,
I gave him to his Daddy
and he instantly quieted.
Precious!

My sweet Greta has been through so much this week.
They are very thankful for a healthy baby boy.
Now.... 
Mommy needs to rest and heal.

Congratulation Greta and Lynn!!

The circle of Life....a Grandbaby is born and a niece went to meet Jesus this week. I'll write a post about my niece, Lori, soon. She passed away on Wednesday after a long, courageous battle with cancer. Pray for her husband, her two children and her step-son. I was planning to travel with two of my sisters to Michigan to attend the funeral but baby Carson changed my plans. That's just fine. How sweet to think that Lori is celebrating and worshiping at the feet of Jesus with her mom who is my sister Janet, and her Grandparents, two of which are my Mom and Dad.

So happy for you! You baby is beautiful and has the same complexion as mine, such peachy-pink. Love this.

We found out my DIL was pregnant with our baby boy the day that we buried my dad. Bittersweet. He was born on my parents anniversary. They died 6 months apart so his birth was beautiful!

Congratulations to your family, Doris, and especially the new parents on the arrival of Carson Edward. He looked just like his father in that 1st photo. Our condolences as well on the passing of your niece this week.
