Here's our newest grandchild. His name is Jake Mitchell and he was born on May 4 2013. His big brother, Harrison, fed him his very first bottle and he did a great job. There is just nothing like a new baby. First of all you forget how very tiny they really are....and how scrunched up they keep their little bodies when you are trying to change their clothes :0 I had him all to myself for two nights, so mom and dad could sleep. Rocking a baby in the middle of the night is a little bit of heaven, especially when you are the grandparent. First off you are not going to be doing it night after night and secondly you are not going to be doing it night after night :) You get to go home and sleep allll through the night. After raising one colicky baby who didn't sleep through the night until he was 9 months old and cried 24/7 for most of those 9 months I am very appreciative of a full night's sleep...and that baby is now 38 years old........time doesn't take that memory away!
Here's a picture of Harrison feeding Jake. He is a wonderful big brother..... very gentle and very loving. Doesn't this picture just make you smile?
