Alden is born

Well Alden was born with the full moon and tropical depression, OF COURSE! He was over a week late and I forgot my camera in the rush up to my daughter's. So these pictures are of pictures taken with my phone!!! HA, desperate.
He is 8 pounds 2 oz and has the noble nose, Ha. So far all is well. He was born on July 20 at 12:31 am Sunday morning. My daughter failed to tell me she had been having contractions every hour (just one an hour) until she was having them 20 minutes apart. We threw everything into the car so we could be up there to watch our granddaughter while her mom (my daughter)was having her baby boy. They had to call a sitter for an hour because they had to leave for the hospital before we arrived. But it all worked out. Hopefully things will continue to go smoothly. Her mother-in-law arrived Sunday evening and will take over for a week. Then I will go up for a while. Precious gift!


  1. Congratulations! I am glad all went well!

  2. Congratulations Grandma. So happy the baby arrived safely. Enjoy!

  3. Well, from the blurry pics, he looks like the little pinky mice I used to feed to my pet snake...

    Heh heh heh. I can't wait to *really* see him.

  4. Congratulations on your new grandson!!!!! All my best wishes to you and your family!!

  5. Congratulations on your sweet little grandson! Nothing sweeter than a newborn!


  6. Oh Happy Day!
