He’s Here!!!

In case you haven’t heard, our very own family leprechaun was born on St. Patrick’s day! Here he is on the day he was born:


And then yesterday:

Guys, I’m in love! After having three babies myself, I thought I was prepared for the intense love, but not even close!

Wizard is teasing that I wasn’t in the room 30 seconds before I had the little leprechaun in my arms. He’s not far off! But first I asked how Special K was doing, and then I asked if I could hold him, so I get points for that right?

That was my weekend. I’d planned to work all weekend, but instead, it was filled with the magic our very first grand baby. This week I’ll try to help out Special K (she’s a champion! And much tougher than she ever realized!) and CPA Boy (best dad ever, and yes I’m biased, but he’s amazing!) I’m getting in a few pages of editing/rewriting, but obviously, I’m hugely distracted :-) It’s been such a wild year!

So how was your weekend?

    GRT weekend…my son and his family were here and my son’s best friend from high school (our 3rd son). Really enjoyed having them here

    What a pretty baby! (And I don’t usually say that about newborns.) He looks like a little elf, so leprechaun isn’t that far off. I don’t blame you for being distracted. Yay for Special K and CPA Boy!

    I finally got my buns working. Only like 50 pages left to edit so I can send Early Grave back to the editor for final edits. Only a week later than expected. That’s not so bad, right? Did some yard work and reading over the weekend, too. Today is crazypants already, but such is life.

    OMG! Look at HIM!!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

    How precious to have a little leprechaun. I know y'all are totally in love with him. Congratulations to the whole family!!! And yeah, totally a good excuse to "blow off weekend plans. " :lol:

    I sort of worked, sort of played, looked ahead to future projects, and prepared for this week. Nothing nearly as exciting as what you got to do!

    Jenn – He is so sweet. I love the photos. You did a good job capturing him. He has great color and looks quite content :).

    I’m glad all went well. Sure hope Special K can get a little rest. Good thing you are all helping out. Bet you all jump at the chance too :).

    Enjoy this special time :). Have a great day!

    Viki, thank you! He’s a sweet baby, and it’s a pleasure to help out. CPA Boy and Special K are doing great The nights are typically hard, but that will improve quickly I think :-)

    I hope you had a great weekend!
