Our Hearts Are Full

Early this morning (4:05 to be exact) we got the call that it was time. I threw on some clothes and rushed over to stay with Little Po031lka Dot. So exciting and nervous all rolled up together, but with my DIL’s mom keeping me informed it was just a matter of waiting! Well at 8:30 a.m. our sweet baby Caleb Joshua was born. Baby, mom, and dad are all doing fine! Here he is sleeping so sweetly on his mama. Those chubby little baby cheeks, so sweet and we hear there is a possible sighting of TWO dimples. He just had to outdo his big brother. He chowed down right away…so he definitely is one of us!!

Papa, Little Polka Dot and myself had to go have a look see in person, but not before we took care of some very important business. You probably have heard we are having some wild weather here in California, and our wild weather turned to snow early this morning. So Papa and L025ittle Polka Dot had some fun in the snow. So sweet, when he saw the snow out the window he said oooooooooooooooo! He was so excited and had his rain boots on .

Off to the hospital we went. Little Polka Dot had to stay in the waiting area with his other grandma…….no little visitors anymore because of the Swine Flu. There was our sweet family, I was just overcome with emotion and we are so grateful that all went well. Mom and dad were just beaming and little Caleb was sleeping so snug on his mom. His mama looked beautiful and hard to believe she just had a baby! The nurse came to bathe him, and wouldn’t you know it, but it was a quilting friend. She was so gentle with him, answering all our questions, and of course getting a bit of quilt talk in!!!

Life is good………..and you know more pictures to follow!!!

Congratulations and WELCOME to Caleb Joshua! Oh what a doll he is! Too funny that the nurse was a quilting buddy - that's almost as good as having a nurse in the family, ol. LPD looks like he's having a blast in that snow. Congratulations to you all!

Congratulations grandma! He looks lovely and well filled ;-). Wasn't his dad there when he was born or did he come home to pick you guys up?
I understand about the Swine Flu but it is a shame little polka dot wasn't to see his brother. Does he understand?
