A Month...Really!

Actually I don't think it's been quite that long, but around here, it has been a hoppin', action packed and toe tappin' time!

On June 14th it was time to have a baby!

Unfortunately things did not go as planned or expected in fact. At...

We were asked to leave the room for the epidural. What was to be routine went down hill fast, and as a crash cart rolled into her room, knew something was wrong. Once she was stable we were allowed back in but only to pack up and move to the C-Section area while hubby got in his scrubs.

What seemed like hours, was only really minutes and at 11:18 I was called back to the nursery where they took me to meet...

Remember, we did not know the gender until birth, so we were all surprised...

So let me introduce our new grandson, who weighed in at 6 lbs 2 oz and 20 inches.

For my blog he will be our "Buddy"

Daddy's "Buddy"

Bug's "Buddy"

Button's "Buddy"

And of course, beautiful Mommas, beautiful "Buddy'.

Her family is complete.
(I wasn't there to help her go home, so daddy took the photo for her)

Due to the c-section, her going home right after wasn't happening. Our time, yep, still doing the hopping around thing, was already booked to head back over to our son. "K" was going out of town for a week and we had made the arrangements to take care of him while she was gone. Though he can do a lot for himself, he can not drive and has daily doctors appointment. Some days are just one, while other days there are two and three visits to get him too. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel. He recently got both drains out and his wound is healing to the point that the vacuum is no longer needed. No drain, no vacuum means no every other day wound care or daily iv antibiotics. He is doing so good! He is able to stand and put 50% weight on the leg and has been relieved of all movement restrictions. He is seeing his kids regularly again and just having life at home has been the best thing for him.

I had a wonderful week with him, and come the weekend, our daughter, being driven by her dad, made her way over to finally see her brother and he got to meet "Buddy".  

Plus the cousins got to meet "Buddy"

 It was so HOT that grandpa and I took the kids swimming...

 It was the best weekend to end one hoppin', jumpin', toe tappin' month!
