Congratulations, Alipurr, it's a baby boy!

I know you are all dying to see this little fellow, so here's some pictures. Baby boy was born on Saturday, June 2, at 2:21 p.m. (after about a 3-1/2 hour labor). He weighed 7 lbs. 8 oz. and was 19-1/2 inches long. Mother and son are doing fine. The rest of us are trying to adjust.

Mother, father, and baby boy arrived home this afternoon and the grandparents came home (to rest and relax). He's a real cutie and we are very proud of him already. He's very alert and is trying to look around at everything. Don't know if he can really focus yet, but he's trying. The girls and mom have been talking to him for 9 months so I'm sure he recognizes their voices.

The girls are so excited and are kissing and loving him already. It's difficult for them to understand that he needs to sleep a lot because all they want to do is hold him, kiss him, examine him, pet him, and play with him. I don't think they realize that it will be quite a while before he will be ready to play with his big sisters.

The father, of course, has busted all the buttons off his shirt he's so proud of his "big" boy.

Well, now that the grandparents (us) are home, I think I will go out and mow the lawn. It's up to my knees already. (More pictures to follow.)

Congratulations Grandma! He is so beautiful, as is his mommy and sister's. My goodness, he looks so alert and bright eyed. He looks like he is about 2 months old already. Gorgeous! I know you will certainly enjoy him...Nothing better than grandkids!
