We couldn't be happier....


Please enjoy a See's Sucker, or maybe a chocolate cigar to celebrate the birth of.....


Donovan James who weighed 7 lbs 12 ounces and was 20 inches long....


His Mommy and Daddy are very happy with their arrival....


.....and so is Gramps!!!!


I have NEVER been prouder of our daughter.

She had a completely natural birth and was as calm as could be. Dustin was an amazing coach and to see her gaze into his eyes for support brought tears to mine.


We are off to visit our bitty Grandson. Most of this afternoon has been spent with my sweet little Miss so her Mommy could meet Donovan too.

I had forgotten how small babies could be, and how short the span of babies being content to be held and rocked was!!!!

I have never been happier...I have never felt more blessed!!!!

Oh, Congratulations to your daughter, husband and all your family! What a blessing, Donavan is such a beautiful baby! My 3 year old daughter came over and tickled the laptop screen, cooing at him;-)

As much as I would love to nibble on one of those See's Suckers, it's the brand new little cheeks that would have to be my first choice for nibbling! YUM! Congratulations to the whole family! What a blessing Donovan will be to the world!
