Boy Crazy

January 15, 2009 @ 7:36 pm | Filed under: , , ,

[Huck], born January 13th, 9 lbs 12 oz. :::swoon:::

(Psst, sweet friend, see what’s on the arm of the couch? The postman was walking up to our mailbox with your package at the very moment Scott, baby, and I pulled into the driveway. It’s beautiful. Rilla approves wholeheartedly. Thank you so very much!)

And one last shot, decidedly less than flattering but a little gift for my Twitter pals:

Put the ding-dang camera away, honey, so I can eat my PUDDING!

(I didn’t know this photo existed when I was twittering about pudding this morning. When I uploaded the photos this afternoon, I saw it and laughed and laughed. Scott must have snapped that during the one brief moment in time when the pudding was actually still in the bowl. I’m sure I was licking the dish clean five minutes later.)

    We have a family friend who is a devoted fisherman. Whenever a family member would have a baby, he’d go to see it and would then pronounce the child a “keeper” — if he liked the looks of it, I guess. I don’t know if any were ever judged not to be keepers.

    Anyway, I’ve seen this one now, and I proclaim him to the world — a keeper. Good work, you guys!

    Congrats! What a beautiful baby boy! I was laughing at that “pudding” photo. I don’t know why, but pudding is just the thing after giving birth. It was the best tasting thing I had and I kept requesting more!
    Anyway, you all look so happy and there’s nothing like a newborn!

    Congratulations, he is gorgeous to the max, and your family looks so thrilled to be welcoming him. And what a great size too – plenty of intrauterine nutritionfor him! It makes me even more eager for February to arrive (when I’m scheduled to deliver my own third bundle of lovin’, in my case a girl 😉

    Long-time reader, first-time commenter coming out of lurkdom to welcome your (not so) little boy. Hard to believe that big, beautiful baby was safely tucked inside you just days ago. He looks like he’s had weeks to plump-up and beautify.

    Oh what joyful pictures. Such happy big sisters.

    Lissa, numbers don’t do that big boy justice. Knowing he was nine pounds twelve ounces is one thing, seeing that huge baby in your arms is quite another. He is gorgeous.

    And yes the pudding picture is great. Kudos to Scott for getting the shot.

    Melissa Wiley says:

    Melanie, I know, I think I’m still in shock a little. I look at him and can’t BELIEVE he was squished up inside me just a few days ago. It doesn’t seem possible.

    But now I know why the last couple of weeks were so uncomfortable…my ribs were killing me to the point that I could hardly walk. Or sit. Or lie down. LOL. I was SO lucky my mother was here–I don’t know how I’d have gotten through that last week without her.

    Congratulations! Love the photos, especially the one of you and two sisters looking down on him so adoringly. (Now get Dad to give up the camera and get in on the new baby documentary!)

    Many blessings to your lovely family, and happy babymoon!
