I am so incredibly happy for all of you. Congratulations! As it was also the wonderful John Lennon's birthday this weekend, I was reminded of his song for his son:

Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Before you go to sleep,
Say a little prayer,
Every day in every way,
It's getting better and better.

Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Out on the ocean sailing away,
I can hardly wait,
To see you to come of age,
But I guess we'll both,
Just have to be patient,
Yes it's a long way to go,
But in the meantime,

Before you cross the street,
Take my hand,
Life is just what happens to you,
While your busy making other plans,

Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy...

~ John Lennon, "Beautiful Boy"

All the best,

I had to revisit this post this morning (I saw it for the first time at 3:00 a.m. while I was feeding Charlie... the middle of the night feedings you are now getting reacquainted with!!)... it is beautiful. The first time around I didn't have the volume on. Oh my heavens... Amazing Grace! I had chills all over. So happy for you all. xoxo

Kelly, David, Lily and (Charley the Pisser),
I entered your "Life is Good" Blog and was completely enrapt with the introduction of our newest addition (Grady Wayne) to the HERD. While scanning the presentation for a few photographs that I could expound on by saying "what an unforgettable picture" but I found that this would be an impossible task. He is such a handsome boy and mirrors a combination of the complete family. The pride and love are so apparent on the web site. I know Lily will be a caring and loving "Big Sister" and will teach him how to shut doors that are left ajar.
Jen, eat as much of their food as you want and drink their wine because you ROCK!!!

Love you all,

Anna Ruth said...

I have chill bumps and happy tears. Welcome to the world Grady! You are one lucky baby boy. You have family and friends that love you already and will be looking after you to make sure you are taken care of.

oh happy happy birthday to baby grady! what a beautiful post. i cried at the first picture of you holding him for the first time. what a special sister you have for posting such wonderful words. can't wait to meet him and hear all of your stories. what a cutie!!!!!! xo

Jessica said...

So beautiful...the pictures, Grady, and your perfect family! Hope you are settling in at home and enjoying this these first few days of baby Grady. I hope I get to meet him soon!

lynne said...

What a beautiful memory of a special day. Jenn, your pictures have such an intimate quality that I feel like I was there.
Kelly, after reading your previous post, Digitally Nesting..., you can take that worry off your plate of worries. God has the perfect plan. Lily's heart will not be complete until all the pieces of her family puzzle are knit together. Do you know there is something in a baby's saliva that actually HEALS cracked nipples? Isn't that incredible? That was God's design! He's got the details taken care of. Love to your new family. I love you all. Lynne

Heidi said...

he is STUNNING!!!! beautiful. i can't wait to meet him and watch lily with her baby brother!
congrats kelly and david!!!!!! lily and grady too!

Lucy said...

How privileged I feel to have been part of this journey, witnessing the ups and downs (decidedly more ups than downs), and feeling the joy along with you and your little family. And now it is complete – you have your two blessed children. As your Mom,
I couldn’t possibly be happier. My personal love cup is overflowing. I love you all so very much.
Love, Mom
