Saturday I drove my grandparents up to Oklahoma so they could meet Gage. I’m selfless like that. It was really important to me for them to see him while he was so new. It was kind of important for me to see him when he was so new too. Look at how much this sweet boy loves his momma! Gage is weighing in at about 6lb 10oz. Can you remember when your baby was that little? Or last time you lugged a bag of potatos home.

Like laundry, if I’ve managed to put forth all the effort to accomplish the task of buying food or washing clothes, the idea of putting it all away just puts me over the edge. So I boycotted. Didn’t do it. I told Carsyn she needed to do it. Told her to keep looking and there would be a prize in one of those bags for her.
Unfortunately for me, she found the prize too early. Man that girl loves carrots. As a laborer, she was worthless after finding those carrots. As a sweet baby girl, she couldn’t have been better.

Tony got to spend Father’s Day with his dad out on the lake. Those crazy boys left at 6:30 in the morning to go fish. Please note that this photo was not taken at 6:30 in the morning. In fact, it wasn’t taken in the morning at all. This momma didn’t get up until 11:15. God love grandparents. They get up early and are actually pleased that you slept in so they can have that grandbaby all to their self.
We spent Saturday evening with Tony’s family in Gracemont. His mom’s sister and her husband were celebrating their 50th anniversary. The party was Saturday, on Carl and Donna’s 39th anniversary, but their actual 50th anniversary was Sunday. Ah, June Brides.
Holy Moly, look who’s in charge. If that’s not a walk of confidence and determination, I don’t know what is. Look close and you’ll see a big silver tank of propane and behind that, cows. Told you we were on the farm. Aunt Siso’s house is so nice it’s hard to believe.
It was a great night celebrating 50 years of marriage. There was even chocolate cake. Doesn’t get better thanthat.

Gage is here! Gage is here!
Gage was born June 18, 2010 at 10:03 pm.
New daddy Jeff is describing what Gage looked liked.
Carsyn finally made it to the party.
Now the true hardship of parenthood. What to do with your baby when you need to be some where else. Carsyn had 5 babysitters on Friday as we waited for Gage to come. So thankful to all of them!!
Things went really well for on on Thursday night. Well considering she was in labor and no one ever gets sleep in a hospital.
Here is Nurse Judy. She was very knowledgeable and
Sweet little blue and white striped outfit that Gage wore for the first time.
Friday was a really long day for Misty and Jeff. Here is a short version. Misty’s water broke on it down early Friday morning. Yay!. She dilated to a 5 and got her epidural. Things were good. She was at an 8 around noon. Whoo Hoo! Then it took 4 hours to get to a 9. Almost everyone went to grab a quick supper and things went south. Misty started running a fever and was nauseas. Misty labored and labored forever. She was at a 9 and 90% effaced and just couldn’t some to get passed that point. More nurses. Family out of the room. Family out of the hallway. Doctor came. More work. Gage finally arrived at 10:03pm.

I made a diaper cake. A sweet friend from church is having a baby this summer and I had the honor of being a hostess.
Of course I had a good helper. She’s always a good helper. Love her.

We had a great time hanging out together while Carsyn was with Granny and PaPa T. Thanks mom and dad!

What’s a summer without a family reunion with lots of people that you don’t know or remember.
But family is important. So you go. You introduce yourself. You get out of it what you put into it. You bring your baby along and she knows no stranger.
She plays their games and asks them to hold her sippy cup. She laughs. They laugh. They sing. She sings. You ask questions. They ask questions. You remember you are family. You reconnect.
