These Cheeks Were Made for Kissing


Code Yellow Dad here again. I thought you might like to see a few photos of our newest little bubba. Charles (Charlie to those who know him) was born yesterday at 3:45pm after 21 hours of labor. He weighed in at an impressive 10lbs even and is 21 inches long. He is pretty mellow and quiet. The nurses had to really rough him up to even get a half-hearted little squeal in the nursery. We will see how long that lasts when he comes home the loudest house on the block.

Calvin and Henry are miss their mom and think the doctors are mean to make her stay at the hospital for 2 whole days. They have been showing off the baby holding skills that they learned in their sibling class a few weeks ago.

Yes that is what a 10lb. baby looks like in the arms of a 4 year old. Calvin can't get enough of Charlie, but they need to find some bigger blankets because his feet keep popping out.

Henry likes Charlie too, but not as much as all the cool buttons on mom's bed. They are way cooler than a baby!

Tell the boys that mommy need the rest--that's why they call it labor! Blessings for all of you in that 10 lb. package ;)

Oh my GOSH those cheeks are to die for! What a big boy---Cal holding him really puts it into perspective. That is a new look too---he's precious. Can't wait to meet him!
Congratulations and good work T!
"Charlie to those who know him"---very funny!

Ha ha ha. My kids always prefer the bed buttons, the little sink, the light switches, the TV... come to think of it I'm sure they would rather the baby and I went home and they stay at the hospital to play.

megachick said...

congratulations! good job delivering that giant package. my little bug was only 7 lbs 4oz, and i was delirious enough to feel guilty that she was small....

blessings for your family.

S said...

Wow! Girl you did it! Not one but two bags of flour!! HE is beautiful...looks as if he will be drivin before his big brothers! Love love love his name!

Dawn said...

Code Yellow Dad - you're doing a great job of keeping everyone up to date. My youngest brother weighed 9 lbs. 5 oz., never did wear newborn stuff. What a sweetie! Those big brothers will be such helpers!
