I went to Indiana...and came home to this!!

lizAugust 5, 2012

I went to Indiana on the 18th of July for a driving vacation with my sister...We had a ball...but I was a day late arriving home and look what I missed!!

His name is Triston Riley Alexander..born July 29th...23 days early...hence my reason for missing the birth...they did fine without me here and my son and his wife are overjoyed and grandma even more so!!

He weighed the same as Alyssa and she was a month and one day early. I don't recall how long she was. I see a lot of happy times ahead!

Aw, I can tell he's already melted your heart. I like his name. I guess because he's so bundled up, he looks bigger than his size. Glad they live close enough so you can spoil him rotten! Enjoy every minute.

I have read that the last month of pregnancy, a baby puts on 1/2 pound a week, so do the math. He sure has chubby cheeks!
