Welcome to the world, Jude Michael.
He's so much like his daddy, just take a look:
It's so hard not to tear up and cry looking at this photo for me. My son with his son. My son, now so big, was once so small and cradled in his sleep . (Okay, my son was never this small, lol, he was 10 pounds 6 and 1/4 ounces!) My son is gently protective of his little guy. Such a beautiful thing to watch.
And if I could just listen all night long to the way his mommy talks. She sweetly asks him all sorts of questions as she learns the nuances of Jude. Love glows in her eyes. Love grows all around them. Love growing strong and resilient.
I'm a grandma now.
