Early this warm July day....

We met our second grandson Ethan Nicholas!
This beautiful baby boy arrived early this morning at 5:52 a.m. weighing in at 7lbs 12 oz and measured 20 inches long. He already has more hair than his big brother James and we're already over the moon for this little sweetheart!
Grandma Lisa just had to take off his socks and get his hands out of his sleeves just to check and make sure all ten fingers and all ten toes were there. He slept through the whole thing.
Big Yawn! (And right after this, he filled his pants for the first time!)
Mamma and son are both doing well. James is here with Grandpa, Grandma and Casey tonight and was so tired he was out by 8:30. Aunt Casey joined him about an hour later and Grandpa and Grandma are right behind her.
Thank you God for a safe delivery for both Ashley and little Ethan and thank YOU for your prayers!

OMG...he is absolutely a gorgeous baby!! He looks totally perfect!! I can only imagine the pride and joy you are feeling...tell Ashley she sure does make some B-E-A-UTIFUL babies!!!! Praising the Lord with you that all went well for both momma and baby! I can't wait to hear the stories of sibling rivalry that are bound to start popping up!! and even the stories of how close these two little brothers will be!!

Such exciting times!!
