O Henry!

 Henry, born August 27, 2010

I was going to post a 'before' pic of our daughter when she was in labor, but thought she might not appreciate it. :-)  So, here's one of our newest grandson who took nearly 48 hours to muster up enough courage to emerge from his warm, liquid environment. 

In an instant, little Henry went from getting his oxygen through an umbilical cord to getting his oxygen through his lungs, and came out already knowing how to suckle. Baby is alert and looks from person to person, recognizing familiar voices. Grandpa just mentioned how amazing it is that little Henry, never having used his vision before, is now looking from face to face. Why doesn't he look at hands? Why is he looking at faces? Why does he look at eyes?


What an amazing Creator we have!

Praise God for a safe delivery. Mama, Daddy and Baby are all doing well. So are Grandpa and Grandma. :-)

7 lb. 11 oz.  21"  Lots of dark hair. :-)

Congratulations! There is nothing like a grandbaby! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! I pray for his health and most of all that he will grow up to love the Lord with his whole heart, mind and soul, and that he will be a tool in the Lord's hand.

He is so precious! What a cutie! Congrats on the new addition!!

Regarding your comment on my page about baseball cards- that is a bummer they were thrown out. My mom threw out my brothers' cards one time when they were moving. To this day they won't let her live it down. I'm glad I kept an eye on mine!!

Have a great week!!

:)
