Meeting Mr. Weston

Monday afternoon we met our newest grandson. Weston Miles Ham was born on September 30 at 1:07 pm. A whopping 8 pounds and 13 ounces, at 20 1/2 inches long, we tease Kelli that he is already half grown. He was a stubborn little thing, making his mother wait for over eight hours before he made his arrival...but she said he was worth the wait.

Matt called at noon to tell me that he should arrive around two. But he came before I could make it halfway to the hospital. Brooke and Maddux were able to meet him first, and Elliot eventually came around and gave him a kiss on the forehead.

He opened his eyes to check out Pappaw talking to him.

Mom and baby are both doing well and should get out of the hospital later today. I meant to post pictures Monday night but Pappaw and I are tag teaming the care and feeding of the other three. They don't leave me much time with the iPad.

Honestly, I don't know how we made it with five children way back when. Pappaw and I may need a week's vacation when things get back to normal! - Posted using BlogPress from my iPad

Congrats on the new grandbaby!! Give him a kiss from me the next time you get to snuggle with him.

I don't know how you did it with 5 kids either. It seemed so overwhelming to me but you made it look so easy.
