Welcome, Baby Punkin!

My daughter the night before


Born Friday, Aug. 26, 2011
It's a BOY!
Logan Christopher
7 lbs., 8 oz. 
19 1/2 inches long

The name Logan is in honor of his daddy's great-grandfather, who drowned in a boating accident. His middle name is in honor of daddy's best friend, who passed away suddenly from meningitis a few years ago and is still missed dearly. 

I have a grandson! He looks like his daddy.

They got home from the hospital tonight. She had a c-section. They've had about five hours sleep the past three days. Grammy to the rescue tomorrow to help the weary parents out. I don't know when I'll get back to blogging, but as soon as I get that monkey and its stinkin' wrench off my back (gotta get my work done while baby is sleeping), I'll catch up with your posts. 

My question for all of you:  How have you been sleeping lately? I hope all is well, and I wish you peaceful dreams.

He is so adorable! And I love the name Logan, very sweet. It's even better that it holds sentimental value. Congrats to you and your family!

Right now the sleep is good. I'm not writing. All those comfy nights will disappear when I start that next story.

Congrats on the beautiful and healthy baby boy. I can see how proud you are.

Stop by the WRite Game when you aren't changing diapers or cuddling Logan. There's a little something for you there, Grandma Lynn. :-)

I am soooo excited for you and am prepared to babysit any time Logan makes it to Colorado...I love the meanings behind his name. Congrats all the way around!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! It's been a wonderful week. It's amazing how one newborn can exhaust three adults! But it's a good exhaustion. What a sense of wonder babies bring into our lives!
