we visited warmth and sunshine...

His name is Grant! Isn't he precious?

We drove down to Virginia, and 50 degrees and sunny, yes sir, we'll take it.

With Evelyn, enjoying some sun.

Adrian, Emily, Mirielle, me, and Evelyn...we went to the hospital to visit baby, and to see Grace and Samuel. Baby Grant was in the NICU (newborn intensive care) with an infection, so I.V. antibiotics, and low sugar levels, and then he developed jaundice. I was the only one of us five to be able to go in and see baby, but I couldn't hold him. Seeing Samuel hold him was precious enough though.

The next day we went out walking, and went shopping, and to lunch, before heading back to the hospital. Imagine our surprise and delight that Grant was doing so much better, he was expected to move into the regular nursery before night! So we all got to visit him, and hold him!!!

Samuel is totally smitten. I am so proud of both he and Grace, they are good parents already.

And this is all for now...home again!!!

what a precious little baby! Congratulations to the parents!
I followed your blog a while back, and we were friends on FB for a while, but I cancelled my account, it was starting to keep me from real life. I miss the blogging atmosphere from 10 years ago, before fb was the thing, people took more time to read and comment.
anyway I just read a few of your posts and I missed your wisdom.
I started reading here when I was engaged and now I have 4 kids and that wisdom is very much appreciated. :)
