Happy BIRTHday Mikey!

Our first Great Grandson entered this world safely early Friday morning after a long 20 hours of labor. 

I was getting text messages from Great Auntie Jen and I was ready to call it a night when she said 20-30 more minutes.  Then the next message was “The Doctor is here and dressed….ready??”  I texted “push”

Jen sent this photo. Which I quickly took a photo of just incase I lost the photo on Far Guy’s phone.  ( me and phones do not get along)

Hey Mikey

I asked if he had ten fingers and ten toes and if he was crying…she replied yes.  It was the middle of the night so I went to sleep. 

He weighed 7 pounds and 5 ounces and is 20 inches long. 

We will be properly introduced later today or tomorrow and possibly I will take a few more photos!

I can hardly wait to say “Hey Mikey!”

  13. Congratulations! Always exciting when a new one is born in the family! The first one is always a hard labor in most cases. I have two daughters due soon too. One is due June 17th..a girl and the other Oct. 25 and they will find out June 6th what it is.Boy have things changed since my oldest was born 45 years ago where the husbands couldn't be in the delivery room. I'm sure she's happy it's all over.

  21. Congratulations to the great grandparents. This is a big deal and Mikey is doing fine. We get to see our 1 year old grandson on FaceTime every once in a while and he is getting to be so cute. Clapped his hands for us and smiles all over like a great performer.
