Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful for the arrival of my nephew Samuel Aaron Garlyn Rodney Aldridge born at 7:40 am this morning. He weighed 7 pounds 8 ounces. He is 19 1/4 inches long- but my mom and I will be remeasuring him before he leaves the hospital. Erin is a little sore from her c-section. Erin had originally scheduled her delivery for March 27. It got moved up last week to the 22nd, but it appears that Sam had picked out that day long before Erin as her water broke before they arrived at the hospital.

Emi was so excited for Sam's arrival that she didn't sleep all night.

Here are some pics:

Sammy Rod is dressed like a little pea. So cute!

 Look how big my Emi s is compared to Sam! My my how she has grown!
 Sam's got the old man receding hair line. Don't worry Sam- Tony's hair eventually came in too.

I'm looking forward to Erin feeling back to herself. Today while Sam was getting a bath I said to Erin "There are a lot of doctor's this practice group whose name start with a "B." Brink, Bingaman, Bellaire..." The lady washing Sam chimes in "Hoegh..." I was ready to start giggeling and rolling my eyes but my sister didn't seem to notice.

Anthony is staying at my mom's while Erin and Josh are at the hospital. I decided to take Anthony to my house this afternoon. The other day he told my mom he wanted to take a nap in Auntie Dawn and Uncle Tommy's bed. I thought that sounded wonderful, but he is not interested in that this afternoon. Right now he is sliding down my chaise chair telling me the reason he is making that noise is because he has a muffler on his back. :-)

I nursed Emi when we got home from the hospital. Anthony ran over to me and pulled the blanket off of Emi and said "Auntie Dawn what are you doing?" I told him I was feeding Emi milk. He found this very interesting. I was not prepared to teach a lesson about breast feeding at a very young age. Specifically, it can be tricky to explain to a child why it is approprite for an infant to suck on a breast but not for him to touch it (or at least mine!).

Happy Thursday!
