Announcing the arrival,

Of
Garren Shane Kirkpatrick

5.17.11
6 pounds, 14 ounces
And his first picture...
here!

I actually got to be present at the birth.
What an experience!
And Gracelyn's first look at her new baby brother.

And finally last night when she got to get her hands on him.

She was so excited.  She did not want to put him down!


However...
this was the night before when she
Partied Like a Rock Star.
Literally.
Bouncing
Off
The
Walls...
and
Windows

Time of photo
3:45 AM
I think.

In a pensive moment around five in the morning.
Still Waiting.

And last evening, cuddled with Mommy and Baby

Yesterday afternoon spent with her cousins.


And Aunt Shelby took them all to my house so that I could get a little work done.
How does she get them to do this? 
I think she Photoshopped this picture.
They are never that calm for me!

She even vacuumed my house and made cupcakes.
Must be nice to be young!

So
Grandchild #6,
Garren
joins
Tyler, 5
Logan, 4
Gracelyn, 3
Kendall, 2
Wyatt, 6 months

My cup runneth over!

Congrats, to you and to your family. Baby Garren is precious. Would love to cuddle him and smell the smell of newborn babies,,, truly a miracle. I am so proud for you that you were there. It's a wonderful experience. Gracelyn is so cute and will be a great big sister, as well as all the grandchildren. Off in a while to have lunch with Holly and Darbee Rae. A great day in store. Hope you are having a good one too.
