baby boy


It's a boy! How exciting! Azalea was disappointed at first, but decided she was happy anyway. I feel pretty relieved, the anticipation was too much! It felt strange seeing the baby rustle around and yawn, rub its eyes and snoodle down, getting comfortable. It was fun watching him, the miniature human. We decided to cook a feast and prepared country ribs, asparagus and potatoes on the grill, with corn on the cob and green beans cooked with caramelized onions and almonds. Andrew baked delicious dark chocolate cupcakes topped with a cream cheese frosting Greg made. Our friends Cheryl Ann and Michelle came over and brought a refreshing peach sangria (that I stared at, but didn't partake in). I have to say, today was a very good day!

So, how happy is Greg? :) B says that if we still lived in Asheville, our boys would be built-in playmates. We'll just have to visit a lot! Congratulations to all of you.

So glad that your baby is healthy, I well remember all of those moments with my own where I saw them for the first time, or saw their face, or that their development was on track.

He looks like a beautiful boy! I feel like giving Greg a total high-five.

So Xavier Raymond, X-Ray for short, right? My cousin Cecily refused another great one of my names, Cupcake Jackson. I had to name one of our new baby cardinals that just so it didn't go to waste.

Felicitations!!

Congratulations! When I was 5 years old, my little brother was born. All I wanted was a sister, so of course I was disappointed at first. But as soon as my mom put him in my arms he was all I wanted.

P.S:I have been enjoying your blog very much. Thanks!

It looks cute even in the ultrasound! I think Azalea will have fun with him, even if he is a boy.
