One week and four days prior to due date Dudo has arrived!
Here are the vitals:
Jonah Harrison Born 12/29/2008 01:19 p.m.
Weighed 7 lbs 1 oz
Height 19 3/4 inches
lots of red/strawberry blond Hair
Healthy Lungs
Laid back disposition (so far)
Delivery went smoothly, it was scheduled and not a frantic rush to the hospital (we’re 0-2 in that department, but I’m not complaining). Heather is recovering on schedule or better, Jonah is doing great.
Isaac and Logan are very happy to see their little brother.
Jonah’s least favorite thing in the first 36 hours of his life is being cold, so most pics are his face and blankets:

Happy New Year everybody!

Merry Christmas to all

Greetings everyone, and Merry Christmas.

My how time flies – y’all were probably wondering if some lingering effects from Hurricane Ike had knocked the Texas Grilliot’s off-line. (There are still roofs with tarps and fences that need fixin’ 4 months later, maybe Obama Claus can make that happen). Have no fear, we’re here, trying to decide what to wear each day – we’ve had to run the heater and the AC in the same week for the last 3 weeks.

The updates have been missing because it’s almost Dudo time! Since Heather does most of the updating she’s been busy with other important tasks like keeping up with Dudo’s demands. All is on track and in tip-top shape now that we’re down to less than 3 weeks until due date.

Boys wrapped up school for the holiday, had a rockin’ Christmas concert, they sang “Santa got stuck in the Chimney” and “Twinkle Twinkle Christmas Star”. I need to brush up on my Dad skill of video taping these performances, looked like an earthquake relief concert during the aftershocks! They are decking the halls to “Have Yourself a Tractors Christmas” and the dogs who sing er bark Jingle Bells, and they know exactly how many days until Christmas since they started counting Dec 1st.Post man has been delivering packages for a few days now, so Sunday they opened one from Grandma and Grandpa, it was a Model D John Deere just like Grandpa’s:

And then today a package showed up from Uncle Eric:

The entire setup shown did not come today, but what did come tied right in with what was already on hand…Have a safe and blessed Christmas everyone!- the Grilliot’s

Hugs for Grandpa

My awesome father-in-law suprised me with a new yard decoration this year, I have wanted a nutcracker (“A Cracked Nut” as Isaac and Logan call him) for years, how cool that he remembered that I once mentioned that I would like to have one, I was jumping (as much as a pregnant gal can) with joy when I opened the box!
The lights on the house are red and white, Harry was daring enough to climb up on the roof to spread his Christmas cheer this year.

And here is one for the rest of the Grilliot clan…this is a little silver Christmas tree I put in the boys playroom, while cooking dinner one night this week they got creative with their toy cars and decorated the tree their way.
