I really wanted Ho to come this past weekend so that I could get down to Louisville to meet "it". Unfortunately, little Ho did not come, but I decided to spur on "its" arrival by working on "its" bedding. If you remember, I made Ho's crib skirt and this past Friday I made "its" bumpers:
Let me tell you, working on little Ho's bedding worked like a charm...my sister's water broke on Sunday morning and she headed to the hospital on Sunday night. By yesterday morning she was on the roller coaster that is known as labor - dilating, then stopping, dilating, then stopping. After a loooong day yesterday she finally had little Ho. And I'm pleased to announce that "its" a beautiful, healthy baby BOY! :)
(sorry for the blurriness - these were taken on my sister's phone)
Here's little Ho looking like my dad (or Pop)
And there he is again - all 7 pounds, 14 ounces of him!
For now, Little Ho is still Little Ho because no name has been decided upon. Needless to say my mom (Grandmama) and dad (Pop) are tickled pink. My mom always wanted a son and God blessed her with 3 girls...you never second guess the plan of our Maker, He knows what's best, and I know that this little guy is going to be a huge blessing to our family! Little Baby Boy Ho, Uncle Stephen and Aunt Kari love you and we can't wait to get our hands on you! Mama Melissa, you better watch out! Aunt Kari is going to spoil the socks off this little guy!
