He's Here!

Landon Grant made his amazing entrance into our world on July 6th, at 1:56pm, weighing in at 8lbs 9 oz. and 21 inches long. Molly was so amazing facing the challenges of labor and a rough delivery with so much grace and dignity. I have never been more proud of her. Ryan was engaged and present and focused on Molly and whatever he could do to encourage and help her....watching them work together to bring their baby into the world touched this momma's heart deeply. They are so good together and already are such wonderful parents to their baby boy. Landon is absolutely delicious. We all just want to soak him in and savor every second of his sweet self.

I have obnoxiously flooded Facebook with all of this already....but for my readers who aren't on FB, I wanted so much to share my joy here with you too. I think anyone who is reading here understands how huge the good parts of life are, how much we appreciate them even more so since we have faced some of our most unfathomable fears...I am drinking in this time, every minute, this precious little fresh boy is so beautiful and will bring with him all of the lessons he has been sent with for his parents....because I do believe that those who hold our hearts are our greatest teachers.
Bless us all.... and bless this new little family.

He is a beautiful little baby boy. Congrats.

I totally get it with being a grandmother for the first time. My first was born in 2000... before blogs and fb, so I started a webpage just for her. I wonder what ever happened to that?

ENJOY every second.

You are not at all being obnoxious on FB. I love your posts.
How is the new mom doing? 8' 9 is big for a first baby. I know because my first was the exact same size. I couldn't sit for a week or two!

I am looking forward to see if his hair is gong to be blonde or red like his aunt's.

Congratulations to all of you!
