This Day In History
Picture by Doodlebug Not bad for 4 years old.
To God be the thanks.
This has been a scarey and frightening road we have traveled the last couple of months. We traveled this road as a family. This was never a choice this has always been a child. A son, A brother, A grandson, A nephew, A cousin a great grandson. As far as anyone in this clan was is concerned the only choice was the name.
Pre-Ecpampsia is very dangerous. With that said I wish to thanks those that were in prayer with us. Yea you know who you are..
His stats are weighing in at 6lbs 7ozs 19 inches tall. After an exhausting morning he is resting well. Oh and Mom is tired and sleeping quietly. Miles James is named after an Uncle James.
And Miles a the man, that raised Dad that didn't have to. Miles the man that stepped into Dad's life and was the daddy that wasn't there.
Granny, and Grandpa had to go to the hospital which goes without saying.taking big sis Doodlebug to meet M.J. Doodle bug only allowed M.J. to be held by someone else so that she could take pictures of her new brother that still smells new.
Dad , what can we say. he was there with Mom for the birth of M.J. as he was for Doodlebug. This may seem like an everyday thing however viewing a c-section is not Granny's cup a tea.
However Dad has been walking above cloud 9 all day.
Note the family has asked that this year Dad give Mom jewlery for Christmas. We can't stand the strain.
Granny took nearly 60 pictures came home and emailed them accross the country to those that couldn't be here today i.e. other grandparents.
M.J. also known as #7 in the chain of grandchildren.
