I'm a Grandma!!!! Gabriel Andrew was born on October 2, Thursday, at 5:00 PM. He weighed 8 lbs. 6 ozs. and was 20-1/2 inches long. He was 10 days late just like his Mommy (Beth) was 26 years ago, but she weighed 9 lbs. 6 ozs. when she was born. We were in Great Lakes/Chicago with Beth for a week. We drove over on the 6th and drove home on the 13th and that morning I really wasn't sure if I wanted to come home. Believe it or not I didn't even miss not being on my computer. Somebody better check my temp to see if I am sick. LOL Each day I could see more of Gabriel's personality coming out. I missed him the minute we drove away. Beth & Gabriel are going to be coming next week to Grandpa & Grandma's home to stay for a couple weeks.

Mommy & me after "dinner." My tummy is full & it is nap time.

When Grandpa & Grandma arrived at our home,
Grandma just couldn't wait until I woke up, she had to hold me.

Mommy & Grandma told me that Grandpa had broken his ankle
& that was why he was crawling on the floor.
I thought he was getting ready to teach me how to crawl.

Isn't our Grandson the cutest little tigger you saw? Yes, we have another Tigger in the family - Beth is Tigger and Gabriel is Lil Tigger. I am anxious to take Gabriel up to meet his Great Grandma when he is here - I hope it is a good day for her.

I noticed tonight that it has been 2 months since my last entry and again I apologize but I really have been busy here. And still am busy. I will get some more pics of Gabriel up while they are here - if I can get my digital camera cards emptied so I can fill them with pics of Gabriel. :O)

I love you, Mom! Love you bunches, Beth! Moca says "Woof" to Zulu, Beth. :O)
