busting at the seams

my heart that is...

"Little" Grant Joseph was born yesterday afternoon. Every single 9 lbs 15 oz of him is perfect.

I just keep thinking "Wow this is big. Huge!"

It is.

A baby. There is nothing in this world more perfect that a newborn child. It's like starting the biggest, most important project of your life from scratch. Every second of everyday will effect his life in one way or another. Every single person that comes in contact with this child will leave their mark.

Starting now his life story begins. The second he was born he started growing into the man he'll one day be.

I look at my kinder babes and think that just 5/6 short years ago they started as nothing more than tiny body with a mind and a soul and now every day, every second even, they're turning into who they are they will become. They're all so unique and so special. They already have a story.

I just seriously cant get over it y'all. Wild.

Wow, I know that was a bunch of ramble but good gosh, I can't begin to wrap my mind around it. So crazy how something so small can be so "big".

Check out big boys precious, teeny feet.
Dying right?? Me too!

Grant is so lucky to have Mark and Brittany as his parents.
also think he's pretty lucky, for now anyway, to have all of us in his life (until the boys fill his mind with ideas of wiener snatchers and such) :)

Isn't he the cutest? And don't you think I need him? I know it!

I've been trying to convince them for the last 9 months to let me have such luck. Guess they want to kiss and hug those sweet cheeks all day long too.  Perhaps I should try again next week after endless days of sleeplessness?

On a similar note I made a basket for Papa Mark of handy "dad stuff" Starbucks coffee drinks, beef jerky, nuts, candy, gum, etc.  I also included Grant's first "dirty magazine" - Sport Illustrated Swim Suit Edition! I'm hoping he'll have some down time in the next couple days, poor guy looked beat! 
And y'all may remember this box of awesomeness given to me to celebrate my engagement...well it was so amazing I had to do the same for all the happy people welcoming Grant into the world.

Sprinkles Cupcakes did not disappoint. although, if you've ever had Sprinkles, that comes as no surprise...

It's true Grant! We sure do love you!

Baby G I feel so honored to be a part of your life. I can't wait to watch you grow! Oh,and don't you worry, we I have plans to get you a playmate asap just the very second I can trick T into it.
