Introducing Charles In Charge

Warning-Picture Overload!

Well, They Did It Now!

They induced labor at about
11am and labor started
progressing pretty quickly.
There was a problem though
so they rushed into an emergency
We were all on pins and needles for
an hour until my son-in-law
could rush out to tell
us that we had a new
BABY BOY in the family.

Let me tell you,
Our newest  famlly member is a bruiser.
I'm kind of glad it's not a girl.
Can you imagine going to
school  when they have you
tell all about yourself as
a baby?
Hi..My name is Cindasissie and
I weighed 10# 3oz when I was born!

Well, our not-so-little guy
is going to be nicknamed by me.
I am going to call him
(Wasn't that an old 80's TV show)?

Enough blabbing..
Here is BabyE meeting
Chunky Charlie for the first time.
He decided he like him well enough
to give him a
Welcome-To-My-Family kiss.
My son-in-law's parents drove all
the way from
Kansas City, MO
for the event.
Hey!  Where is my Kansas City BBQ
you guys are always bragging about?
Here's Gramma holding
The Bruiser.
And Grammpa taking his turn.
Maybe he can wear your hat, Gramps,
cuz none of those cute little
newborn hats are gonna fit him.
My daughter looks tired, but happy,
doesn't she?
Auntie TPot was there for
every bit of the excitment.
And Uncle MamasBoy came after
work with his wife.
(Umm...that is NOT his wife-that is the baby)

Papa showed up late because he was
working all day and had to
drive 100 miles after work.
Hmmm..His hair looks a bit like Papas
if you look at the side hair line.

At the end of the day we took one
last picture of the new little family
and headed home to put
BabyE to bed.
It was a good day.
A long day.
A kinda scary day.
But, in the end,
A Blessed Day!

I will post the contest
winner tomorrow..
after I have a chance to
review the guesses!

I am off-
and the hospital!

Thank you ALL so much for
all your wonderful wishes! 
I love you guys!

  6. Awww, he's so precious! Congratulations to you & your family!

  7. Beautiful baby!

  8. What a big boy! He is ready for school already.

  9. He is so cute! my older boy was almost 10lbs, and I did NOT have A C-section. Funny thing is he was the smallest baby on the ward that day LOL. Congrats to you all Diana! XO

  10. He looks like a keeper to me. I wish you were closer so I could take his pictures! But since you're not, do find a good baby photographer and over do it just a little bit more. He's too precious not to get tons of pictures of.

  11. Oooooh he is so cute!! Enjoy that special blessing!!


  12. He is so cute. That frowny little face......really adorable. Such a big guy. Enjoy, I know you will.

  13. what a happy happy day, beautiful family,, I'm so happy for you all! Best wishes,

  14. Congratulations!!
    That is one precious boy, joining a lovely family. This post just made me smile...what a delight.
    (we have our 1st grand coming in a few months & you just made me more anxious : )

  15. "Charles in Charge" - I love it!!
    Your daughter deserves a medal for carrying that big boy to term.
    She looks amazing having gone through a C- section!!
    So nice that the family came from "hence & yonder" to
    meet the new baby. Again, Congratulations!

  16. Oh, I love Chunky Charlie and isn't Baby E so good with a baby brother?
    I am so glad it all ended up fine. I know you went through the worst few hours of your life up there, waiting for someone to come out with the news.
    You know the meeting I am waiting for- just have your camera ready. Especially if he pees in her face the first time.

  17. Bruise or not, he's a real cutie! Our last grandchild (a girl) was almost 10 lbs. at birth & was such a chunck. But now she is just very dainty and petite -- go figure! Anyway, congratulations on your very special early Christmas present.

  18. Congrats on your new line backer, Diana. He is a big boy! Nothing more beautiful than the gift of a new life. Enjoy & may he be blessed throughout his life.

    Have a beautiful weekend.
    TTFN ~

  19. Congratulations! I just love chunky babies and he is so precious!


  20. Oh he is a beauty!! Congrats!
    My Jake was 10 lbs even!

  21. I don't know why I'm crying, but that post was so sweet. Except for the part where you call him Chunky Charlie. Baby E looks so sweet looking at the new baby. Now don't be starting the new baby on Starbucks yet. Congratulations!!!

  22. He's adorable! Love the big brother kissing his baby bro, so sweet! Everyone looks so very happy and your post is lovely with such beautiful pictures of the welcoming family. Congrats to the parents and the grands. Thanks for sharing. FABBY

  23. What wonderful news Diana!! A big huge congratulations to you and your family!!!
    I love little babies, but big ones look so nice and plump and like a 3 month old, so they are really cute!!!
    I had big babies, I thought!! Mine were little next to Charles in Charge. Only 8.5 pounds!!!
    Many hugs and smooches to you!!!!

  24. Wow, a new baby for the holidays! You can't beat that. What a chunk he is and yes it is better that it was a boy, lol.

  25. Oh sweetie, what a precious little chubby cheeked cherub your little fella is. A blessed addition to your family....CONGRATULATIONS Nana!!!

    xoxo laurie

  32. What a cute lil butter~bean! Congrats! You must be beaming! Chunky Charles lol luv it!

  33. What a special little pumpkin so cute! Don't spoil him to bad. Cong. Vicky

  34. Cute cute cute! He is so round and chunky and you just want to hug squeeze. My little petite daughter weighed in at 8lb 10oz. at birth and was chunky like that. Even the same dark hair. She turned out to be very petite and wears a size 2. Enjoy that little bundle of goodness!

  35. Oh Diana, I am so happy for you and your daughter and the whole family! What an exciting time for your family....a brand new BIG baby boy! Give him lots of gramma hugs and kisses for me! So glad everything turned out alright and your daughter is doing well after delivering such a big guy. So very sweet. What a beautiful Christmas it will be for you and yours.

  36. I'm so excited for you!!!! He is beautiful. And your daughter looks beautiful too...and she just had a baby! Big baby! My youngest, Jeremiah Samuel, was 10lbs 9oz! He was almost 3 wks late...I begged the Dr. not to induce labor but the morning he scheduled it I went into labor and had him in 3 hrs naturally. I'm afraid of hospitals and medicines. We called him Bubba till he was about 8 yrs old. Having a big baby is easier to care for...they don't feel so fragile. You have so much to be thankful for...I know your Thanksgiving will be wonderful. ox

  37. Congratulations, Diana!!! This is wonderful news and what a gorgeous baby!!! I am so thrilled for you and your whole family!

  38. Oh Diana,

    Such precious photos! Thank you for sharing!

    Congratulations to Mama, Daddy, BabyE, Nana
    and the rest of the family!


  39. Oh Diana, congratulations! A new baby to hold and cherish, what a blessing! Each picture is just precious, thank you for sharing such a special time with us!! Ahhh. babies!!!

    Have a great weekend!


  40. S0 cute! Congratulations. What a beautiful family you have. XO
