Grant Edward Andreas decided he wasn’t going to follow the doctors time line and made his appearance today (2/27/10) at 6:15am. Grant weighed in at 7lbs 5oz and was 20 inches long. Mom and baby are doing fantastic. Here is a quick shot I took with my iPhone while in the nursery with him. I will be posting more pictures as soon as I get a chance and can tear myself away from this guy long enough to edit.
Shelly has been a real trooper. Within 12 hours of her surgery, she was walking around the halls of the maternity ward. Last night I pushed Grant in his crib along side Shelly as she took her walk. Our first family walk. Once the weather clears up there will be plenty more of those!!!
The second day he was with us I started playing with his hands and feet. I noticed he tended to swat at my hand as it came near him. Here is a quick video I shot of the game. Quality is not that great, but it shows just how smart of a little guy we have here. Give me five
As requested, here are more photos of the little guy. I promise there are plenty more to come.
