I just got home from
the hospital.

We got it!
We got baby!

I will be back later to post
pictures and stats,
but I will tell you this...

We had an emergency C-Section
and baby weighed
It's a boy!
Charles Russell...
(after my Dad, her hubby's
granddad (Charles)
and my hubby's grandmother's
last name.

Tomorrow I will figure
who won the contest.

We are blessed.
Mom and Baby
are both well.
your photo name

Tete said...

Well, well, grandma. I am glad you got this posted this morning and I cannot wait for photos of this little Packer. So- you going to call him Charlie?
You know, CR was born into a great family and his life is going to be so awesome.
Hope sweetcheeks is taking the news well.
And you had better start working out and doubling up on your vitamins if you plan on bouncing this one on your knee for very long.
Don't forget to grab a Happy Meal for him on the way home from the hospital. That one is going to be hungry all the time.
Hugs for Charles- Tete
Oh yeah, pinch those cheekies for me!
