There's a new fella in my life!

Stardust picture

Snips and snails..
and puppy dog tails..
that's what little boys are made of,,

Had a call around 4:30 Thursday afternoon from son Bran..
he and wife Jamie were out looking at something or other for their home..
His Message: " hey, Jamie's water just broke!"
Of course,as she was scheduled for a C-section for this Saturday, this minor event caught them totally off guard!
They had not a clue as what to do!
We asked,is Jamie's hospital bag in the car?
Are you closer to home than to the hospital?
Then drive carefully home, retrieve the bag..
and get to the hospital! 
which they did..
Daughter Heather called around 5:30..
as she was finishing her Nursing class at another hospital..
Bran had called for her to come and stay with him..
(they are very close, always have been)
Heather called again at 9:30..
or rather  she picture mailed me ..
the photo of the most adorable little fella..

Braxden Thomas..
weight 5lbs 4oz..17.5 inches long

Altho there was little sleep or rest due to hospital routines..
here's the happy Daddy Bran and baby Brax,,..
Mommy Jamie is trying to rest a bit..
if all goes well,they will go HOME on Sunday!!

Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
