There's a new boy in town
Danny is a Pop Pop. More pictures of little Gavin Riley's arrival are on my Flickr page. He is pictured above with Danny, me and new Dad Stephen Scott and Uncle Brett Scott.
Little boy Gavin Riley made his appearance around nine fifteen last evening, weighing in at seven pounds, six ounces and twenty inches long with strawberry blond hair and baby blues. Mother father and baby are doing fine.
Danny and I went to fetch Brett from the bus station (after he'd endured a sixteen hour ride from Nashville) after Danny got off work and hurried up to the hospital to join a dozen or so family, extended family, and friends to await the arrival. Casey (mom to be) had been in labor for about 24 hours before the docs decided to do a Cesarean delivery. Once that decision was made, baby arrived about twenty minutes later.
While we were at the hospital, our dogs broke into the pantry and had a party. They ate a bag of Werther's Originals hard candies, wrappers and all, a box of Triskets, a box of Wheat Thins, half a box of graham crackers, cereal, and a bag of garlic flavored croutons. They also ripped up my freshly painted pantry door. Nobody got sick though they had some, ahem, gas.
Nuthin happening on renovation front till next week. Its okay, I need a nap break.
Its storming again. We're holed up inside, about to watch some of the John Adams miniseries.
Live long and prosper.
