It's Gage Again

I warned you that you would be seeing more of the massive amount of pictures of this little one. lol. Today, I went with Mommy to take Gage for his check up. He had to go last week because,when they discharged him from the hospital, he had lost a few ounces (from 7 lbs. 14oz to 7 lbs. 9oz.) and was just a little jaundiced. Last week it had improved some. Today he was pronounced a completely healthy, perfect baby boy and weighed 8 pounds 1 ounce. He's a good little eater, Papaw says he's trying to catch up with Miss Fluff. lol. That may take a while though, Miss Fluff has a 6 month head start and she has her eating skills down to a fine art. LOL

Gage had his first professional photos made today. Kevin and Dawn said they had talked about it last night and set a limit as to how much they would spend. They decided no more than $150.00, after all, he's only 1 week old. Well, like we always did with Kevin when he was little, that limit went out the window when they saw the pictures! Double that amount and you will see that they simply could not choose "a few" of the poses. Needless to say, I have a lot of pictures to work with when making pages of our new little angel. Add to those the gazillion pics that I have taken in just one week,LOL. Oh well, I say you can never have too many pictures and I know you all agree with me!
Thanks so much for looking in on our newest blessing.

My First Visit to Papaw and Mamaw's House

After leaving the hospital Wednesday, Kevin, Dawn and Gage made Papaw and Mamaw's house their first stop before going home. Dawn is doing amazingly well, getting around much better than I am, lol. Papaw is thinking Gage is a definite "keeper". Even though he weighed in at 7 lbs. 14 ozs. we think he looks so tiny..of course ya gotta remember we've been babysitting Miss Fluff who is 6 months old and according to her routine doctor visit today weighs in at a "fluffy" 20 pounds 6 ozs. and has grown 3 inches in length since her last visit. Can you say "big girl"? lol. Today they both visited..all we were missing was Ashton (who usually visits on Sat. mornings). Oh, my, Miss Linda...I see lots of wonderful memories in our future!!

Here he is, all cleaned up and napping. Went back to the hospital today and took dozens of pics but he was sleeping in all of them. He's resting's a lot of work coming into this big world. They get to come home tomorrow. Big brothers, Jay and Cory have been staying with us (Daddy refuses to leave the hospital, lol). So it has been some long days for this old Mamaw..getting up early to take the boys to school and today I kept Miss Fluff until her Nana got off work, made supper for Rhett and the boys, then off to the hospital in Johnson City (only about 10 miles away). Now it's 1 am and I need to be up at 6 so guess I'd best hit the hay. Will do more pics tomorrow. Thanks for looking in on our new little sweetie.

The little bundle of joy that we have anxiously awaiting. Connor Gage Hill. In this picture he was only minutes old, had not even had his fist bath yet, but Mamaw thinks he is beautiful and can not wait to show him off. It has been a long day for us, even longer for Dawn and Kevin. I had the honor of being present as he made his entrance into the world. To say that we are over joyed is an understatement !! Believe me...more pics will follow ! lol ( Now we have great-grandchildren who are older than our newest grandchild). How blessed we are!!

Thanks for the prayers and sharing in the blessing of this precious bundle of joy !!

Once a nurse...

ALWAYS a nurse. Sorry, I've been MIA for a while. I see Linda and Miss Carol did manage to get my SOS message. LOL

Rhett is on the mend, of course he's getting some great nursing care, lol. He did get to attend Cody's wedding, but wasn't able to stay for the reception. Each episode like this just takes so much out of him, seems like it takes forever for him to be able to do anything. This last one really took a toll on him, he's talking about putting the camper up for sale. Says he just doesn't see any more camping trips in his future. He has a doctor's appointment Monday morning so we'll see how it goes.

Speaking of Monday...Dawn's (our daughter-in-law) doctor says if Connor Gage doesn't make his appearance before Monday, he is going to admit her to the hospital and induce labor. So Monday is lookin' like a busy day around here. Hoping to get to see my new grandson in person!

I had big computer problems Tuesday and it wouldn't let me do anything!!! Couldn't even get into my Photoshop program (now that's a major deal). I tried to send out a short message on chat..had no idea if it got sent or not. But I see from the cbox message that it did get sent. Now, I'm nursing my 'puter. Just got it back today and I'm scared to death that it will have a re-lapse. LOL. So far, it seems to have recovered nicely. I'll do my best to make rounds tonight and leave love and hugs and even a few toddies for everyone.

Love and Hugs,
Miss Scarlett
