The Brand New Baby

It was 3:15 a.m. when we got the phone call. As I woke up I heard Honey's sleepy voice quickly saying "sure... yeah... ok". I propped up on one elbow squinting in the light of the bedside lamp as he hung up.

Then I realized why we would be getting a call in the middle of the night... the new baby was coming!

Our friends, who also moved out here to Ft. Leavenworth from the south like we did, were preparing to leave for their one-hour drive to the hospital to deliver their fourth (!) baby. We had already arranged for Honey to stay at their home with their other three children whenever they went into labor. Well the time had come!

I kissed Honey goodbye and promised to call and check on him when Parker and I got up.

Later that morning as Parker and I ate our oatmeal and banana slices for breakfast we called Honey to see how he was faring. His morning had started several hours before as the three children each came downstairs to find him ready and waiting to prepare their breakfast and pour their juice.

I asked him how they reacted to seeing him in the kitchen instead of either of their parents. He said they were totally fine with it - of course after he explained what was going on. They basically wanted to have some cereal and watch cartoons and since he was equipped to handle that they were pleased!!

He sent me this adorable picture of the game, appropriately named "burrito", he made up with these three cuties!
Meanwhile their grandmother was on an airplane from Tennessee to relieve Honey.

And a teeny tiny baby boy was born to join this special family!
A week later I snuggled that sweet peanut!
And that little peanut's daddy held my little peanut!
And a week later when all the visiting grandparents went home, I prepared a couple of meals so they could have just a few nights with one less thing to worry about in the precious moments they were becoming a family of six!
Welcome to the world JMC! I can't wait to watch you grow over the coming year!
