This is How it Begins!

Ok, Grandma mode is on today. May I present Mr. Owen James.

He arrived last Friday at 6:24p. Weighed 7lb 11oz., was 18.5" long and has brown hair and blue eyes. Owen really doesn't have this pronounced of a double chin. It's the way Grandpa is holding him. 

Mommy and Daddy are doing well and splitting the nighttime duties. Doesn't seem to matter to Owen - he wants fed at 1 and 4 in the morning. DD told me even if the tank is topped off at 11p - Owen is up at 1 for more. Oh, and this kid has everyone wrapped around his finger. 

And on the stitching front - 

Oh Whale
Hands on Design
Finished this one this last Monday and am now about half way done with the last of the series. I changed up the colors. They should have been lighter and I just am not feeling these light floaty colors that don't pop off the fabric.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I am excited that DH will be home all weekend. His last job had him working 7 days and 12 hour shifts. This job is straight 8 and five days. The money isn't as good, but life will be better!

What a handsome young fellow! I'm sure those fingers will be wrapped more and more tightly every day, but that's ok. I've always said there's good spoiling and bad, and I'm positive his will be the very best. I'm sure Grandpa is going to be just as happy to be home more as you are glad to have him. Great stitching, too!
