Michael Isaiah William is the name he has been given. He's as cute as a button and weighed 6 pounds 9 ounces (2976 grams). Born 29th August 2016. :) Mum did amazing and is feeling great.
Michael's siblings are so excited!!
Here are a few photos from my cellphone of some of us when we went in to visit Mum and baby in the hospital.
Michael in the crib, Sophie, Jana, Jacob and Caleb
Me and my lil brother
And here he is, in all his asleep cuteness, taken when he was around 15 hours old.
PS. As you'll have seen, my blog design has changed. I was getting a little tired of the old one. I quite like the new one. I did all the artwork for it - I painted the header image, background (watercolours), welcome image and my new post signature. It was heaps of fun and I always learn so much when I change my blog! :) What do you think of it?
Awww.... he's so sweet! Congratulations! :)ReplyDelete
And I like your new design a lot. Wow, you painted it yourself? It looks amazing!
I think so too! Thanks! :DDelete
Awww you're so kind! Yep, I painted it. Took me around half an hour maybe for the four images?
He's adorable! I love the new design! It looks great! :)ReplyDelete
With love and all joy,
Thanks, Allie! :)Delete
He's SO CUTE!!! Congrats!!ReplyDelete
I LOVE your blog design--it's so pretty!
Thank you! :)Delete
I'm thrilled people like it :D
Nice colour change of your blog! He is cute, but all babies tend to be I guess.ReplyDelete
I agree. I reckon all babies are pretty cute.
He's SO adorable! Congratulations to your family! What number is that?? =)ReplyDelete
And like I said, the design is gorgeous! And I can't believe you painted it!!!
Hehee I think so too! :) Number 11.Delete
Thank you, you're so sweet! It was fun... I love painting and designing things.
Congratulations! How exciting for you and your family. A new baby is always such a strong reminder of God's amazing masterwork.ReplyDelete
How did you do the watercolor your blog? On a computer or a file from a real-life photo? Its such a pretty color.
Thanks! It's so exciting. He's such a wee perfect masterpiece (great word!).Delete
I did the watercolour artwork on paper then scanned the pages in and uploaded them, if that makes sense.
He is very cute! And little! 6 ibs. 9 ounces is such a perfect "baby weight"!ReplyDelete
Like your new design! Good job!
I know! I've still got the record of being the smallest baby in our family though... I was 6 pounds 4 oz. The others were all around 7.Delete
Praise God! So sweet! I envy you having a baby to hold in your house!ReplyDelete
I know, He is awesome indeed. Mum only laboured for around 2 1/2 hours in the end so it was pretty amazing!Delete
It's such a blessing.. he's so sweet.
Oh, dear Bonnie! Congratulations on your precious baby brother! He is too sweet for words...I love that picture of him surrounded by his adoring siblings! Aww! And what a beautiful name...ReplyDelete
Little Caleb was born on April 29th and thus turned four months on August 29th, so he and Michael are exactly four months apart! I am so glad that this precious baby boy has arrived safely - how blessed he is to have so many older siblings to love him! I have been praying much for you all and for your mum...praise Jesus for His grace! Again, hearty congratulations...I am so excited for you all!!!
And I love your new design, Bonnie...so ''you''!
May the Lord be with you all and help all those at home! Enjoy these wonderful days! Ah, so blessed and special...
Hugs to you!
Thank you, kind Kelly-Anne! He really is such an adorable, precious wee ray of sunshine. We are ridiculously blessed.Delete
I loved seeing the photos of Caleb when you posted them to your blog recently! He is such a bonny boy. Funny that they are four months apart! I wonder if they will ever meet someday.
You're so sweet to have been praying for my family and for Mum. Thank you for your kindness in remembering us to our Father.
Thanks! I'm quite liking the new design. It was really fun to make.
Thank you for your lovely comment! I always get so excited when I see you've left a note on my post!
Hugs right back <3
Aww! Thank you for your sweet reply, Bonnie! I can't tell you how excited I am for you all... Do you think you could send me an email? We would like to send something to your family from us...something small for wee, precious Michael! If we may, that is...Delete
Oh my goodness, your family is amazing! You're so sweet! I've emailed you using the email on the 'contact' page of your blog.Delete
Congratulations on your new baby brother! I think both the baby and the design look great. I like the design better than the older one.ReplyDelete
Thank you! :)Delete
I'm definitely liking my new design more as the days go by. I was a bit funny about it to start with, lol.
