A Month has gone by and DAX!

It is hard to believe that it has been a month since I posted anything on my blog! What used to be a daily ritual has now become almost non-existent! I rarely even open it, post, comment or read! How sad is that? I do plan to be back regularly, though.

My computer has been acting strange and it throws me off line constantly - or I have no connection. That makes it very frustrating and character building! That explains part of why I have been blog-absent. The other part is life... just dealing with things and people and moods and well, just living.

BUT, I have had a great and fun month with grandchildren. The MOST precious, sweet, loving and wonderful people on this earth. They bring me so much pleasure and joy!

Speaking of... we have had answered prayer and a blessing. My wonderful daughter-in-law has been carrying our 6th grandchild. She is tiny, so this has been a hard process for her. She was all baby and it was questioned quite frequently whether she would make it to the scheduled C-section date of July 17 ... which was 2 weeks before her due date.

Everyday I would watch her and question her. She believed that she would make it and we were right there with her.

She ALMOST did! Yesterday, July 16, 2009 at 8:31 pm our precious little Dax Edward Posey made his loud appearance! Before he was all the way out he was screaming! Weighing in at a HUGE (for his mama) 5 pounds and 8 ounces and 18 inches long! Perfect and whole in every way!

Here are a few pictures! We had cameras and phones flashing all around...

This was my first good look at him...

Here he is after they gave him a good bath and washed his hair. I guess he is already all boy since he didn't like that at all! You can tell by the look on his face!

Here is his proud daddy holding him - can you see the big smile? Yeah, we are all very happy!

Thanks for your prayers for our family!

Now, we have #7 due in January.... God is blessing!
