He's here

May I present to you, my Grandson, Vincent Austin Marra! He was born Monday, August 25th at 7:17pm. He weighed 8lbs 4oz, and is 20.5 inches long. I am so happy I'm beaming. Really, I wish you could see my face. Already they are home from the hospital. I went this afternoon to pick them up. Mother and baby doing well. Grandma on the other hand is a bit of a mess. But I was that way before so I can't blame them. We had 8 people in the waiting room when she was delivering. I snuck by her doorway which was a little bit open and heard him take his first breath. When we finally got to go in and see him he was bright eyed and looking around wondering where the hell he was. He even moved his eyes in the direction of the person talking. He's a genius I just know it. My son-in-law is an artist and drew this on Meg's board in the hospital while we were waiting for his debut.
Here's mama and baby bonding. Isn't it a beautiful thing?

And so he's not left out here's my son-in-law giving him his first bottle. Meg can't breastfeed because of her medicine she takes from the liver transplant.
And here's just one last picture of him because I can't get enough. Sorry.You'll be seeing him alot around here.

He's very, very cute. Look at how wide his eyes are open. I love the little knit cap. I'm SURE you're going to knit lots of great things for him. RIGHT? That's a really cute drawing your son-in-law did.

You're a young gramma.
