Grayden has arrived!!!

As always we are a little behind in our blogging. But this is a big one. Grayden James has come into our lives and has completely taken it over. It was not by force of course, but by pure adorableness. (See picture below)

He was born April 27th at 6:19 pm. He was 6 lbs 14 oz and 19.5". Now because this is our first there is great debate on which family he looks like most. When I first saw him, he looked very similar to a few nephews on Mandy's side. But if you scroll down to the post called "Little Drama King" and see the picture of baby Nate, you will see a great resemblance. I think it is a mirror image.

Both myself and Mandy are enamored with him. He is a good eater and sleeper. We could not have asked for a better son. He is also very strong. At three days old, he rolled over. We were doing some tummy time and like most babies, Grayden does not like it. Well, he got very upset and said that is it and rolled over.


As you can see we have jumped into video blogging with both feet. We are no longer chained down by the shackles of just pictures.

It looks like we are still learning how to use the video camera. So here are some more pictures.

SO cute! We planned on visiting you in the hospital but Trevin was running a temp of 103 and even though I would have gone with out him I did not want to risk it. I cant wait to see him.

um mandy, you look gorgeous for just having a baby. He is so adorable. CONGRATS. Have you tried on the pink jammies on him yet?

the first thing Janell said was "how can she look like that right after she had a baby?" So see your little plan to look beautiful after you had your baby worked! I love the video. Now you have proof forever!

Jamie said...

That was EXACTLY the same reaction I had - you look gorgeous Mand! He is such an amazingly handsome baby! You are a beautiful family! Can't wait to see you all and meet him!
