Baby Jack

Finally getting to write about my new grandson, Baby Jack. He was born on December 20th at 5:04 p.m weighing 7 lbs 8 oz, 20 3/4 inches long. Living out of town, I did not make it in time for his arrival as Amy had a short delivery time of less than 6 hours for a first birth. He is a beautiful, healthy baby. Has had a little jaundice but it is improving and he is eating well, sleeping and blessing us every moment. He makes me laugh when I watch all the funny faces he makes. He does not know how funny and cute he is, but thats okay, mimi has her camera close by and snapping away. He will know all of this one day as it will all be recorded in his scrapbook I will be making for as long as I am a part of his life. Mom and Dad are the most wonderful parents and enjoying parenthood. Amy is not getting much sleep as she learns to breastfeed, but that will all get better in the days ahead. I did make a trip to the grocery store and on my way out of the parking lot, I did not see a pole and turned my blazer right into it messing up the whole left side of the car. Thankful to have a son in law who fixes cars, so we wait for the insurance man to come and and give the estimate and hopefully Brian can repair Mimi's car. I may get to stay with Baby Jack longer than planned due to the car repairs. At least I only got a big bruise on my hip from the accident, but it is really sore.

Christmas Time

Its been a busy time, getting everything done and ready for Christmas as we await the arrival of Baby Jack said to be coming way before his due date of December 29th. Hoping for a 38 week arrival so his lungs will be good and healthy. So now I am on stand-by status waiting for the call from Amy as she heads to the hospital. It is such a blessing to be receiving this precious blessing from God. My friend Kay just gave birth to her son Davis on Thanksgiving Day and he is like another grandson to me, as Kay is like a daughter to me. We have always been so close and have shared so much since we worked together at St. Michael's. I am busy making jewelry and have put scrapbooking on hold for now. I am so far behind now that I may never get caught up. Hopefully the cold days of winter will keep me home and scrapping again. My jewelry is always for sale and I will be glad to custom design something for you. Have a safe and Very Merry Christmas. LOL
