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.

A time to be born ....

A time to die ....

The circle of life connected on the same day ... within hours of each other.

It's nice to know that Grandpa's and Beau's souls embraced one another during those few hours.

I have no doubt that during that precious time, Grandpa told Beau what a fortunate baby he was. Afterall, he was being born into a wonderful family!!!!!!

Hello dear Beau Ryder Littleton.
It is a JOY to welcome you into this world!!!!!!!!

Goodbye sweet Grandpa. Your love for your family has inspired us all and will continue to live on ... especially in the life of this little one.
