A few days with our new grandson!

Connor made his appearance a little over 3 weeks early, following in his mother's foot steps as she did the same thing. It may be a good thing he came early, since he weighed in at 7 pounds 2 ounces. 


He was born Friday evening and here his Momma cuddles him at home on Sunday afternoon. 


One of the first things Sarah did was open a present we had brought along from Missouri. This was a quilt from his great grandmother. The lucky little guy now has quilts made by both great grandmas!


Grandpa enjoyed spoiling him . . .

  as did I!


How many newborns make a TV appearance?  It helps when your Daddy is a local weatherman.  He made the 10 o'clock news. 


I love this picture! Some how it became the screen saver on my iPod  I had nothing to do with that either, right Sarah?


Come Tuesday, Connor had a new bed. It was a portable light bed. Jaundice had set in. He spent the next 36 hours sleeping in it. But shortly after we left for Missouri on Thursday, he was set free. After many heel pricks, his blood work showed the numbers had gone down. 


I leave you with his hospital pics!  We love you to the moon and back Connor! Congratulations Sarah and Rusty!
