Welcome to the world

Mason Joseph, born May 24th at 5:01am, weighing in at a whopping 9 lbs 11.4 ounces. It wasn’t the easiest delivery but Mom and Mason are doing really well now.

075 Inducing was started and then stopped due to an overload of maternity patients requiring all available staff in the OR, so Emma was able to see Mommy and Daddy a couple of times before Mason was born. All she was interested in was Mommy’s food. Take a look.

023Sugar cookie. (Dessert first, you know).

027

Grilled Cheese, mmm..yummy.

060

And some O’s.

055 Holy cow….what kind of tub is this? I could play here all day.

083 And finally….Baby Brodder was here!

070He even brought Emma a present.

071

A magnetic paper doll set to play with. What a smart brother. Starting things off on the right foot.

082

And Emma gave Mason a present too. A cute little squeaky toy.

088 A very proud Papa and Grammy. (and Emma with more of Mommy's food).

101And the happy family at home!

The weather for our drive to and from Seattle was absolutely perfect. I couldn’t resist taking these two pics of Mt. Hood, right outside of Portland.

001

004

006

And this is Mt. St. Helens, between Portland and Seattle.

007

Mt. Rainier, southeast of Seattle. It was hard to get a good picture while travelling at 70 mph. (I sure hope that’s the speed limit in Washington LOL). It sure makes for a nice drive when you have such beautiful mountains to look at.

And… lastly, a couple more pics of Miss Emma playing at the park.

So, Mason was well worth the wait and I’m excited to get back there in a couple of weeks to help out.
