New Arrival in the Family!

Meet my newest great nephew, Penny's grandson, Wayne Bryant Hawthorne! He was born at 38+ weeks yesterday afternoon weighing in at 8 pounds 7 ounces. Isn't he handsome? He and mama both had some scary moments before arrival as their heart rates were extremely elevated, thus he came into the world a couple of weeks early! He looks like his brother Calvin and sister Hayden.  Both mom & dad, Maggie & Lance are so happy he is here and all is well with him and mama too! Welcome to the family young man, you fill it with more love! I used a new soon-t-be-released kit from Miriam's Scraps called Vintage Baby and the wordart is by AJ's Digi.
I finally went to see the Doctor on  Monday and 2 injections, 2 inhalers and some pills, I got sent home with a scolding about open windows when the ragweed and tree pollen count is so high...bad asthma attack that I have not had in a few years.  Feeling somewhat better, but the prednisone makes me less hungry (good thing), very dry (also good makes me drink more water) water gain in my feet and legs and sleeplessness....NOT A GOOD THING! I've been used to getting 6-7 hours of uninterrupted sleep and now I'm lucky to get 3-4, but I am feeling better and I guess that is what counts most, right?
Okay, I got interrupted, my neighbor just stopped by with some pumpkin bread and short visit, so of course I had to stop and have a slice and a fresh cup of coffee with her.  So enjoyable too, the bread, the coffee and especially the gab session to catch up. Thanks Jan! Now back to what I was doing! Where has the morning gone? I can't believe I started this at 11:15 a.m. and now it is 2:30 p.m.  Time surely flies around here! ROFL!
I also got a cute photo from Amy of Annabeth dressed as Cinderella.  Hayden wore this a few years back and gathered up all the paraphernalia to give to Annabeth, well, of course she had to wear it right away so she could be a's the page I created of it, using a freebie Disney page I got online. The background is from me with an overlay from HG and the wordart is by Sunshine's Creationz! She reminds me of her mama in this photo and her grandma at that age too! LMBO!
Today is my handsome nephew, Jeff's 37th birthday so I must say Happy Birthday to him as well.  He is my sister Kathy's baby boy!  She sent me this photo of him and his gorgeous bride Tiff just yesterday! They live in Illinois so far away! Here he is in a QP by CT Arlene at With a Russian Dutch Heart's kit Fallicious!

 Well, enough gabbing for this time, must finish the clothes I have in the washer and the load in the dryer so I can stay caught up around here and the fur babies are demanding to be fed, can you believe it? I think they have internal clocks that never forget! Y'all have a great Wednesday and I will chat more the next time...just remember to keep making lots and lots of memories to share! Hugs to all!

  1. Congratulations on the new arrival in the family! Hr looks ever sooo cute.
    And I am happy to read all went well with the birth dan mama and son are okay!
    Oh, good you went to the doctor and you received quite some medicatin hey? Not good indeed that you cannot sleep as well as you should at the moment, but well, you can catch that up later, I hope. For now is important you get lots better and will not need thse medicins anymore for a very, very long time.
    Cats do have a kind of internal clock for several things, but often for feeding time. LOL.
    Take care, and get better soon.

  2. Asthma takes a lot out of us, and makes it difficult to keep up with things. So glad you have your meds to help you breath better. There seems to be allergens and pollens year round now. This year was not good for my breathing either, though it's much better now.

    Hope your sleeping habits get back to normal soon. It seems all fur babies have internal clocks. In a way it's good, in case we human forget things. haha.

    I've been quite busy all day trying to get to the part where I can have a lazy day. Somehow, time is not on my side. By the time I slow down, it will be time to take Joe food shopping. Ah well, maybe Sunday will be a good lazy day. haha.

    Stay well my friend, and have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
