Number Nine

In other news...

We have a new grandson with a head of wavy black hair. He arrived this morning, and now Hannah and I can have honest labor and delivery conversations without me scaring her. She been through it. "I was ready to die," she said, and I laughed because I remember the feeling all too well.

It will take me a little while to get used to his name as it is one I have never heard before. His name is Idris, and although
I'm, still mulling it over, I'm sure it will grow on me just like the names of all my other grandkids. (If not I'll just keep calling him Russell. ha ha!)

Mom and baby are doing well, with baby getting a little extra attention for having pooped in his amniotic fluid. A little time in the NICU and some antibiotics.

You gotta love his hair!

  5. Congratulations on number nine!!! He's so sweet. Is it pronounced "Ee-drees"? I really like the name, it's different, but I like it. He's in my prayers too, sweet little guy...:)

  6. What a beautiful baby!! One of my grandsons was born with a mass of black hair too. I just love babies....they smell heavenly. I really like his name a lot......he won't have four others in his class with the same name. Congratulations to everyone.
