Introducing....

Baby G!




Born November 17th at 7:02 PM
7 lbs. 10 oz.
20.25 inches

After 27 hours of labor and 3 hours of pushing, Baby G came into this world happy and healthy with a beautiful, sweet cry. I will update more and would have updated sooner, but Mr. S is horribly sick and quarantined away from us in our house, and given that our family is over an hour away, I am essentially single parenting and it's HARD. Living on 15 minutes of sleep at a time here, but at least I'm learning tp type with one hand! Hey, while our fairytale coming home was not given to us, our fairytale child was. My dreams have finally arrived. I am already completely and totally in love....

Shelby!!! Baby G is a doll!!! How cute! I'm sorry Mr. S is feeling sick. I hope he feels better soon!

Baby G looks totally like Mr. S - the eyes, the nose, the mouth - tiny little version of Mr. S!!

Look at that gorgeous baby! November 17 is a wonderful day to be born; I should know. It turns out Baby G was born 40 years and 13 minutes after I was. :)

I hope Mr. S makes a full recovery soon even if just so you can get a little more sleep. Any chance of family or friends coming, despite the distance?

Congratulations again!

Lorraine said...

Gigantic congratulations! He looks much too wise to be only a few days old...

I hope Mr. S is back in good health soon - meanwhile, you don't even have to get out of your pjs. So glad you have so much to be thankful for this year!
