Maggie and Nate had finally agreed on Noah, but when he was born, Maggie didn't think he looked like a Noah -- he looked just like Nate. But since we already have a little Nate in this family, they chose Nate's grandpa's name. Maggie had a bit of a rough time, but was in great spirits last evening. (At least I think she was -- I was still in a Halicon-induced haze, but more on that later.)
Here he is with his two grandpas:(It was a great day for Clay -- new grandson and a Browns victory over the Bengals)
Denny had just gotten a speeding ticket driving down to see the baby Monday -- Paul's other grandma, Susan, is in a battle with cancer, and had surgery at IU Med on Sunday. Keep Susan in your prayers, as her prognosis is not so good -- right now, all she wants is to see this sweet boy. Maggie and Nate spoke with the doctor yesterday about taking him up to see Susan; he was hesitant to give them an ok, and said Paul must stay in his car seat and be covered with a blanket. It's such a difficult spot -- so much joy over this baby, but overshadowed by what Susan is going through. One day we'll all understand.
More pictures and updates soon -- once again, I have failed to get a picture of my daughter with her baby -- I promise one today.
