Here's Jonathan Steven Anthony Clark





He's a redhead and still a little purple from his fast trip into the world. His shoulders got stuck. The purple has already faded a lot since the older pics from last night.

He looks like Jim. Melissa says it isn't fair that she did all the work and didn't get one that looked like her. I had a good shot of Melissa with the baby but didn't realize she has a big rip in her hospital gown right at the nipple. She'd kill me.

Jim looked like Alfred E. Neuman when he was a baby. In the right light, he still does. He has no room to talk about watermelon heads and monkey feet.

Melissa's doing fine. They'll go home tomorrow.

More later. I may try for a nap before girls come home.

Thanks to all of you for the good wishes if I don't get around to everybody today.

Hugs from
Koolaid Granny (yes I've arrived!!)

Congrats! He's beautiful!

Nick was purple like that, too. The cord was around his neck 3 times. It only lasted a day or two, but it sure makes for some memorable hospital pictures!

Congratulations Granny! What a whoppin big boy! Watermelon head and monkey feet! That's pretty darn flattering it is! LOL! Well the rest of him will catch up. I'm glad he came out healthy in spite of getting caught up for a moment. Best of luck to Melissa and Jim, new parents for the first time in over a decade! yikes!!

Hi Ann ~~ What a lovely baby and he does not appear to have a watermelon head. He looks cute.
I like the name Jonathon, and I am sure he will be spoilt by his older
siblings. I hope you have caught up
on your sleep. I don't like the heat
either, it's tiring. Take care, Merle.

Take care, Meow

Thanks for the pictures! He's a sweetie.

When I was teaching prenatal classes, I saw dozens of newborns, and they all kind of look like grumpy old men to me, really.

But cute! Cute grumpy old men!

J said...

Very nice pics. :) Thanks for sharing!

L. said...

I said this in email already, but CONGRATS!

"Monkey Feet" is a good one.

Her Bad Mother said...

He is JUST. GORGEOUS.

Truly.

WonderBaby was (is) a strawberry blond with monkey feet, too. (We call them spider monkey feet, actually.)

And congrats - as I said in my e-mail to you - on reaching full KoolAid status. An honor!

L-girl said...

Congratulations, Granny!!! And to all your wonderful family. Hugs all around.

Ms. Lori said...

Ann! How wonderful!

Congratulations to you and yours.

P.S. My middle daughter was born with a purple face (she was over ten pounds, and lordy, did I PUSH)-- scared my husband to death, the sissy.
