Welcome Baby August!

Baby August Gabriel arrived on Tuesday November 20th at 11:59 pm.  My mom had been in town for 5 days, and we had time to do some grocery shopping and get the house all stocked up with food.  My water broke around 4 pm on Tuesday the 20th, and I summoned Jason to come home.  We had our baby in arms before the day was through, just barely.  Timing was perfect, and we returned home with our new son on Thanksgiving Day to enjoy a nice feast prepared by mom.

August is a well-cooked butterball turkey ringing in at 8 lbs 3 ounces and 19 inches long.  He has a nice head of strawberry blond hair, and looks like he got a crew cut at the barbershop just before he was born.  So far, he's been a little cuddly bug.  Thankful!  We have our pair- 2 beautiful children; a little girl, and our sweet baby son.

Augie or Gus:  It seems there are lot of "Gus" fans out there.  I get it- it's pretty cute to call a chubby little baby "Gus."  I myself, will call him Augie, with one "g."

Isla:  Has been very sweet with August.  She tries to help by bringing him binkies.  And likes to hold her baby brother and comment on all his tiny parts.
