I'll try and go easy on ya ;) GRANDBABY!!!

My little girl :) Bless her heart, she didn't think she was miserable enough Friday to be in "real" labor, and arrived at the hospital at 11 p.m., already at 8cm. She said she only went because she was hoping they could do something to ease up the back labor. FAR tougher than she looks.

Hubby Miciah and I were there the whole time. After the most amazing, ulcer-inducing night I've ever been through...Wow!

Daddy's in love

So is Uncle Phil

and Grandpa Jim

Grandma thinks it's pretty okay, too.

Sprung from prison, Mini-Mom couldn't be more pleased

I think she's gonna keep an eye on me ;)

I expect to be goofy for quite some time, lol!

It's my grandson. YAY!

There, that wasn't so bad, now was it?

It's all so amazing isn't it Brenda. And it's going to be so much fun.
He is a cutie. Enjoy him.

Each portrait you've shown is very very special! I think I like uncle Phil's best! Babies put the rest of life in perspective.
Guess it will be a while before he goes jumping with ya!
Great big hugs to you and Grampa!

Thanks for sharing the special event - he couldn't be more perfect :) but all babies are, aren't they?

What a wonderful bunch of pictures. Everyone looks so happy. Jude is beautiful - I especially like the 2nd shot. He looks so "new" Enjoy him.

What a little doll baby! It is so easy to forget how small they are. I am so glad everything went well for your daughter, and Jude was well worth the wait! Congratulations!!!

Brenda -- great story teller (as always) and wonderful shots -- such a joyouos occasion. Thanks so much for sharing them with us -- I know they are the first of many many joyful occasions for you and your family.

(Geez, Chelone, dont give her ideas - Mini-Mom might cut her off!).

Thanks everyone! It's interesting that a random group of women chatting about gardening just happen to have the most beautiful and brilliant children and grandchildren in the world ;) We're pretty lucky, I'd say!
I especially love to see Jim and Phil holding him. They both act like tough guys, then melt as soon as they touch him.
It'll be 18 years and a couple of months before he can do his first tandem. Now, Cindy! Don't blame Chelone-the thought has already crossed my mind. Time will tell, I commit to nothing :D
Gosh, Marian, I can't even compare the two. Skydiving is a full-on lose your mind thrill that lasts a few minutes. Jude's arrival is an awe-filled wonder that hasn't worn off yet, and I don't imagine it will. No choice at all if I had to pick one, but I'm glad I don't have to ;)
I've been kind of hanging back this week. Daddy has a week off work, so it's nice for the little family to have some quiet time together, and for Miciah's family to be able to come visit while he's home to show off his son. Next week will probably be a different story.
Chelone, I'll be sure and document in pictures the growth of his hair and fingernails, lint-balls between his toes...all the important milestones, lol!
