Welcome Baby Eli to the World!

Elijah Gregory was born today! I was there and cant even remember the time..but it was around noon. I was privilged once again to see another grandchild enter our world. He's a beautiful baby boy and one of the calmest babies I've seen ever. Whats funny is his Daddy (my oldest son) did just as he did when he entered the world, he just looked around and kept looking and checking things out. I still remember laughing at how he just laid there and looked around.
Above photo is of Baldyman and Eli, and here is me and Baby Eli.
Here he is just minutes after birth--not even cleaned up and already looking really good.
AND....proud Mom and Dad, Toshina and Jason. She had a very early trip to the hospital so I know she's pretty wore out. Hopefully Eli will be as calm at home and she can get back on her feet real quick.

All the babies are born now--safe and sound. This makes #5 of grandchildren for me and Baldyman. We were talking today at how we had 5 children and now we stand at 5 grandkids.

15 Thanks for your comments!:
