Back to the important stuff ... he is beautiful! (That's me holding him in the picture) Dark hair, fat little fella (already has the chubber-baby-rolls on his arms and legs, and is really filled out across is back and belly), with a perfect shaped little head and barely a mark on him -- he is lovely (and a good model for why people should have Cesarean sections -- he was camera ready immediately! ) LOL!
Auntie Heddy is the official baby photographer for our family! So I got in there right away with the camera and got some shots (with Jack, their firstborn, I had over 500 pictures of him by 6 months of age! and the picture they send out as their birth announcement was one of mine. They want to have a similar picture of the second born son ... so I took 60 pictures of the new baby and his momma and daddy!) Unfortunately, when I got to the hospital, my Mom had already taken Big Brother Jack home ... so I got no pictures of the brothers together, or whole family of four shots!
By the way, my nephew FINALLY has a name (they decided yesterday - following more than a day of namelessness!) ... Owen Warren -- Owen is a name both of them like (plus it sounds nice with his big brother's name --"Jack and Owen, its time for school!") and Warren was Jason's father's name (he died about 10 years ago). I like the name.
Now ... look at this face -- I am doomed! I will spoil this little cutie as much as I do his brother and the 2 nieces and nephew from T's brother's families! It's fun to be an Auntie!
In these pictures he is not even 12 hours old!
This is Jack at 2 1/2 days old ... he had a rough delivery and got pretty beat up ... but what a doll he was -- slept all the time, and was a snuggle bunny! Now he is a big brother! I think they look a bit alike, but also quite different. Jack looks a lot like Tracy, and I think that Owen will look more like Jason. Jack started out with dark hair, and wound up a redhead like his Mom, while Owen's hair is really dark, thick and spikey ... more like his Dad.
Anyhow, that's enough about babies! If I get a shot of the 2 brothers together, I'll post it.
Next time ... knitting updates!
