Meet Henrik!

This has been a week to remember. After nine long months and 24+ hours of labor, we finally got to meet our very first grand-baby.




















This is Henrik (AKA Henry)! At 8 pounds, 4 ounces, he wasn't as small as the doctor predicted, and came about a week earlier than Daughter's due date. I see this as a good thing. After all, delivering a 9 pound baby would have been a tad more difficult. 

This is such a hopeful, happy time for our family. There's been a parade of grandparents, aunts, uncles, great-aunts, great-uncles, cousins, and friends coming by to admire him. We are all ecstatic. 

Let the spoiling begin.

Congratulations to you all. New babies bring such joy. We are about 10 weeks from the arrival of my first nephew (I have a niece) and are tired of waiting!

Congratulations Grandma to you and your family. That is so exciting, and he's a cutie too. Will look forward to an occasional picture of your grandson scattered among the cats - will be so cute.
