Grandson Owen's Debute

Owen , our adorable grandson! These photos were taken in the evening 13 hours after his birth.

The foursome!

Grandpa, Owen and Melody

Big Sister talking and singing to her little brother and Mom!

Proud Son/Dad and Mom/Grandma.
It was quite the day! Get a phone call in the a.m. that Owen was born.
We went to church. I checked my cell phone after first service. There were 2 messages, one from daughter and one from son. Well, we wound up meeting Megan at Taco Bell about 20 miles away after church was over. She had gone to hospital to get Melody and took her to church with her. Then we meet up with them and ate at Taco Bell. Then got car seat and took Melody with us to Costco before we headed home with her in the back seat, where she fell asleep. The birthing center in hospital has a long couch against the wall. Melody was asleep when they got there, early Sunday a.m. She stayed asleep even through the birth. But when she woke up later, there become a problem of rest for the weary mommy and daddy. So we stepped in to help. We had a fun afternoon. Had planned on making french toast for dinner but when we got a phone call that Justin requested a $5 footlong sub from Subway, we decided to just go eat there since we were both tired and had to go there anyway! Worked out great. Melody fell asleep in the car on the way up to hospital. Before she did, she was singing about mommy, daddy and Owen the boy, that later turned into baby brother! So cute! I had to shut the radio off!
We spent an hour at the hospital with them and took photos. Left Melody there, even though she wanted to come home with us. (They are to home early afternoon today.) Came home and downloaded my photos and had the scare of my life. New computers do that! I thought I lost all my photos or the last portion. I pulled the memory card out too soon. But my compassionate hubby helped me find them again. We put the media card back in and they were found! Thank you, Lord. Sigh of relief! Will share photos of Melody's day with us in another post! I don't want to show you too much cuteness in one fell swoop!
