happy birthday to us!

Look who's 3 weeks old and 29 years old.

I'm not sure if Beau is wanting sushi, but that's what I want.

And, look at the cute card Aunt Robin and the kids made for me.

I got my birthday wish!

Plus some of Andrew's hot lava cakes.

The best helper

While I have a minute, I wanted to give Aunt Robin a big BIG Thank you!

She is such a great helper.

The other day Mom asked me if I knew when Robin might be heading back to Arkansas.

I told her maybe when Elam is in school!!!!

I have one more minute to talk about my smart baby.

With every child, I've gotten baby milestone newsletters emailed to me so I can know what he or she should be doing. (You would think I'd know by now, but I can't remember)

Anyway, at 2 weeks, your baby is supposed to be able to mimick you if you stick your tongue out at him. I've tried this everytime with each child and no one stuck a tongue back at me.

Well, it finally happened and I was thrilled. (a silly thing to be thrilled about, but thrilled non the less)

Just for fun, you can picture me trying to get him to do this. Then Haven joined in!

As I write these words, I look at the clock and realize it was almost exactly 2 weeks ago that little Beau came into the world

PS about Grandpa

If any of you are curious about the last few days be sure and check out my sister-in-law's blog as well as Papa's blog. They were able to keep up with the events a little better than I was since I was in the hospital for most of it.

Immeasurably more

Hello Goodbye Beau and Grandpa

Beau Ryder Littleton was born Friday Oct. 3rd at 1:25pm.
He weighed 8 lbs 10 oz and was 20 inches long.

I won't go into detail, but I was checking into the hospital at 12:23 and I had Beau at 1:30. It went so fast I had no time for an epidural!!!

Gibson, Haven and Elam love their new baby brother.

We got Elam his own baby to take care of. (He gives it kisses and then drops it on his head) Pray for safty for Beau!!

I also need to mention some sad news. The reason this post is called Hello/Goodbye is because the same day Beau was born Grandpa Littleton past away.
This was Andrew's Grandpa and my kids great Grandpa, but we all called him Grandpa. He and Grandma live here in town. The kids and I spent lots of time with them. The funeral was Monday. I didn't go of course, but all his family was there.
He will be missed.
