For A Long Time Lurker

One Minute Old

Delighting Grammy

Still Puffy From All Mommy's Fluid Intake
I have over 1,000 photos of this baby.  A long-time lurker has requested more photos.  I'll post more each day.  His daddy snapped the top photo one minute after he came out via C-section.  The second one was taken the next day.  Poor Younger Daughter was in labor for something like 36 hours, and on IV fluids the whole time, so she and he were both puffy little balls of water for a while afterward.  That swelling gradually faded.  I thought he was cute then-and he was-but it didn't really look like him at all, I now know.

Grow and Grow

Julian, Newborn

Julian, 1 month

Julian, 2 months
Julian, the sweet little angel.  Julian was born one day after his due date.  He is sweet, and snuggly, and interactive and bright.  He will be three months old on the 29th.  He sleeps through the night, he recognizes his parents and grandparents, he smiles all the time.  He is mimicking us now.  He blows bubbles.  He rolls over from front to back.  He coos and squeaks at us.  His personality is forming and he is so mellow.  My attempts at keeping a journal here have not been successful, but I hope to be better about that.
Julian is living proof that if you never, ever give up on your child, they might just reward you one day with the prize to end all prizes.  Someone like Julian.  Grammy's dear boy.
Julian, 3 months
