Grandbaby #5

On July 19, we were blessed with our 5th grandchild,  Andrew James Leischer.  If you want all the details, check out Tabby’s blog post here.

He weighed in at 9 pounds when he was born. 

When Tabby went into labor, she called me and I headed to the other side of the state to stay with Bella.  Drew was born the next morning so that afternoon I took Bella to the hospital to see her new baby brother.

Bella had a present for Drew and we stopped to pick up a balloon.  She insisted on carrying everything herself so it was a long walk across the parking lot and through the hospital.

Of course a little window shopping along the way.

Finally, what she has been waiting for.  Snuggling with Mommy and holding Baby Drew.

Drew at two weeks.  How about those dimples?
