Jade and Ruby have a new baby brother, Jayson Christopher! He was born by C-Section at 5:40 p.m. on 9-27-2011 at the Missouri Baptist Hospital in St. Louis. He was 22 inches long and a whopping 10 pounds 6 ounces. He is one BIG BOY!! He is out of NICU and in room with mommy now so that all can see him. Both mother and baby are doing well and expected to go home tomorrow. Daddy and sisters are happy to hold and "play" with him. Grandpa Jim is so very proud of him and can't get over how big he is. His grandma Kathy is also very glad that he is here and all is well, but she has a terrible cold with a temp and cannot be around him yet. She did see him behind glass when he was born though. His uncle Jeff and aunt Tiff cannot be there until after the weekend as Tiff's father passed away the night before Jayson was born and will be buried today, so they are in Tennessee right now. Here is a couple of the first photos I snitched from Christina's FB account. Will be more later I am sure...LOL!I used a kit called It's A Boy by Just-A-Dream and a cluster by goingdigi called boyish dreams that I flipped. Thanx to both for the lovely freebies.
My sister Penny's brother-in-law had heart surgery yesterday and came through it well, all went as expected. This was the same surgery her hubby had a few years ago! It's a heredity thingy with the aortic valve.
We hit 101 again yesterday! This makes 71 days in 2011 that we hit triple digits. A front finally came through about 9 p.m. with a lot of wind and loads and loads of lightning, but very little rain at my house, but some and every little bit is appreciated. Dropped the temps to the low to mid 80's through the weekend. Needless to say, I have all my windows open and the "girls" are loving it. Each one is in a different window soaking it up...LOL!
Well, today is payday, so have lots of errands, got to go do them. Will chat with all of you next time. Have a super duper weekend making lots of memories to share! Luv, Mat
