Zander Pics

Well here are some pics They aren't the best. My daughter has great ones on FB. This is what I look like after being awake almost 36 hours. He is just minutes old in this pic. The nurses and Doc were great. Mostly. Thank goodness for epidurals. How did mothers watch their daughters go through that before they were invented?

Aren't they just the cutest! My daughter did awesome. Daddy did his part well too.

I love how this pic looks. He had to stay an extra day cause he was alittle jaundice. It broke Mom's heart to leave him that one night. So it was under the light for him. This kid is really in the spotlight.

This has been a crazy week. I have learned alot about my kids, Gkids, and myself. I am so grateful for my family. There is just myself and my kids here in AZ. My sisters and other family live far away. We depend on each other. We can count on each other. We love each and like each other. That is a gift. I have a SIL and DIL that I consider my own. I am grateful for a loving Heavenly Father that still performs miracles. Just take a look at that baby. My daughter had genetic testing and she carries the gene for hemophilia. Zander was tested and does not have the disease. A God of miracles for sure.

The Gkids are so excited for their baby brother. I will post of those pics tomorrow. I have been eating pure crap for the last week. It was really hard to eat well and take care of 4 kids. I don't know how mothers do it. I only had 2 kids, 4 years apart. It is freaking hard. My hats off to all you young mothers. I only rode my bike once and walked once this past week. So tomorrow I am getting back on track. Up early to walk. Food shopping I have yet to buy food since I emptied out the old fridge and got he new one. I haven't been home long enough. H20 is going to be awesome. I am so ready to get back on track.

Keep the mood and the food real............


  1. Oh Dana, he is precious! The pictures are great and if that is you with 36 hours of no sleep, well, color me impressed - you look great! Of course I'm sure the new-grandma radiance is helping. :)

    I wouldn't even give it a second thought as to how you did, food-wise - with the uncertainty and chaos of everything leading up to the birth AND caring for the other grandkids, heck - if everyone has been fed, I'd call it good.

    Congratulations again!

  2. Precious! Congratulations to you and your family. You may be tired, but I think you look wonderful!

    And thank God that the baby is healthy. Now go and get a little sleep!
