Oliver!

 
Oliver, about 25 minutes after birth

I remember some months ago when I was first told that our son and daughter-in-law were going to name their baby Oliver. My first thought was, 'Oliver. Oh. Liver.'  Really? It's certainly not a name that would have been top on my list. Who names their kid Oliver?

But then Kevin and I walked into the hospital room Thursday evening and I saw that sweet, darling little boy snuggled up against his mama. No kidding, he melted my heart!

Then I saw his face, now I'm a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I'm in love, I'm a believer!
I couldn't leave him if I tried.

I said, 'He's so CUTE!'  

to which our son responded, 'Don't sound so surprised.' LOL 

Anyway, here's a photo of the little family. I'm going to schedule this to go up in the morning, get the coffee ready, and go to bed. We're going to leave tomorrow morning to go spend a couple days with another grandson (and his little sister and parents) to celebrate his 4th birthday.


P.S.  It's just the strangest thing, 
but Oliver has suddenly become one of my favorite names!

Thank you, Lord, for blessing this family with a healthy baby boy!




Have a great weekend!

P.P.S. I phoned the University of Wisconsin, Madison and talked to a bird expert about the mysterious sound (Update on my eagle post).

I also love the photos of your new grandson, Oliver, and his folks! He is adorable, and I think Oliver is a great name!!

Safe travels, and enjoy the birthday celebration! I'll look forward to photos, Judy!

Angie Vik said...

Congratulations on your sweet grandson. He looks great. One of the drawbacks of being a grandparent is that we don't get to name our grandchildren. But you're right. We love them because they belong to us and then before you know it - you can't imagine them being named anything else.

Eva Ason said...

Congratulations, Oliver is quite a popular name for a boy over here in Uk at the moment, it was 3rd on the list of boys names last year.

He's a beautiful baby
and I really like his name too.
Congratulations to all the family.

Vee said...

Oh he is one adorable baby. One of my dearest friends is named Oliver.

My mother was most profoundly upset by the name I chose for my daughter because she knew a person with the name whom she really didn't care for. Many years later, my mother confessed that the name had really grown on her. Nice to know that you've come around so quickly!

And isn't it nice, after years of made-up names, to come back to more traditional, recognizable ones?

Have a happy time away celebrating a birthday!

Arlene Grimm said...

Congratulations Judy...I love that name! And what a handsome fella, I know you are smitten!!

Congratulations to all on that sweet new baby. Oliver is adorable. Yes it's an old-fashioned name but a good one. Glad you solved the mysterious bird sound.

Empty Nester said...

Oliver is a fantastic name! And, on my dad's side, a family name. My dad's dad and my dad's youngest brother are both named Oliver. I know two boys at my elementary school named Oliver and they are so cute and SMART! Great name! And cute as a button!

Judy S. said...

Congrats, Grandma! Oliver looks like a real sweetie. Enjoy Mr, 4's birthday celebration, too!

Chatty Crone said...

Hey he is not cute - he is BEAUTIFUL and what a wonderful creation from God.

He's so precious!!! congrats to you! I know you are loving this. I think Oliver is a regal name. :)

Lauren @ Bless'er House said...

So beautiful! I love the name Oliver. But I could be biased since my daughter's name is the feminine version, Olivia. Congratulations!
