Oh, Bella you may have thought you knew what love is but just wait till you spend time with that beautiful baby boy!
He looks like he will be ready to take on the world in a week or two!
I also love his name. It's different.
Also I love the way parents (esp Dads) are so proud and act like the world has just been waiting for this wonderful example of humanity to be born. And in a way we always are, for each new person. Who knows what wonders they will achieve?
I was present at his birth. Poor girl. Took forever, but worth the wait. Nice healthy boy for such a little mom. They're going to be great parents. He has 3 grandmothers, 2 great grandmothers, and 2 great, great grandmothers. Yeah, he'll be spoiled all right!
Being raised in the North, Grandma will be fine with me. We didn't have cutsie names for grandparents when I was a kid. If I HAVE to have a cutsie name, I guess I'll be Grandma Cici or something...if I MUST. Nina would be ok too, but there will be absolutely NO Granny, Memaw, etc. It's just not me. Plus that, I think all those names are already taken!
This one's a little blurry, but I think it's my favorite pic so far. He was 2 days old.

Bella, Peter's grandkids call their grandmothers Nana... and my name is Mary Ruth but most of my family calls me Ruth. So, Peter's grandkids when they stayed with us in Virginia used to have a hard time with Nana Ruth, (at 4 and 6 yrs old the th sound is harder) so it came out Nanaroo. They still call me that! LOL I LOVE IT!
