Henry Luther

I am a grandma again! My daughter had her baby yesterday. 9lbs 13 oz. This photo shows him at about ten hours hours old. (The mitts on his hands are to stop him scratching himself; being ten days overdue, he has quite long fingernails.)  Welcome to the world little guy. 


Dana said...

Weighs more than I did! Impressive. Beautiful, too.

wendy said...

Busy summer for you.

I bestow upon him the abitity to laugh without reserve, and to cry when he needs to.

Congrats to all!

Tammy said...

He came out as big as a toddler with a full head of hair. ;) How cute is he!!!

Congrats to his lucky family.

KD said...

Aaawwww.I was wondering when he was going to arrive! What a beautiful face -- enormous eyes and voluptuous lips!

Joyce Ellen Davis said...

9 lbs 13 ozs-- WOW! That must have hurt. He looks really really tired, and none too happy about this festive occasion.

Congratulations, again, Grandma! And all the best to the rest of the family, little Henry included!

I'll bestow upon him the knowledge that he is a part of something bigger than himself.

Oh ohoh, congratulations Granma!

What a lot of excitement at your place lately! I've got used to baby weights in kgs now.
Congratulations to your daughter and to the proud grandma of course.
