The Fourth Arrival

Photo: Yesterday we welcomed Andrew J Cardwell to the family! 9 lbs 2 oz. 20" long. Born: 8-19-12 6:14 am. 
Mom and baby are doing great.


Wow! I can't believe I've done this FOUR times now. We brought home little Andrew one week ago today. He is such a delight and everyone is enjoying him immensely included Mr. H. He loves and loves on him with an occasional jealous outburst (tantrum) but I think two older brothers really help keep him happy and busy.

Labor and delivery were (of course) in the middle of the night, but I love the still of it all and the rush of the day isn't there to distract us. Andrew was born at 6:14 AM right as the sun was coming up over the mountains and it was a great way to start the day. He weigh 9 lbs. 2 oz. and was 20 1/2 inches long. We were a bit shocked when we first saw him. He has lots and lots of dark hair. Who knew my husband and I had the "DNA" for a little dark haired wonder, but after going back thru my baby pictures ~ yes it is possible.
