He Has Arrived!

Anderson Therris George was born yesterday, December 5, at 11:37 a.m.

He weighed 7 lbs., 6 oz and was 19.75 inches long. He has the most adorable patch of blonde hair I've ever seen, super cute grumpy faces and generally looks like a 90-year-old man in a 1-day-old's body. If I could've custom-ordered a baby boy, Anderson would be it.

Anderson is Jason's Mom's maiden name and it generally means "manly" (insert Tim Allen grunts here) or "son of the manly one" to be precise (insert Jason grunts here). If three syllables becomes to cumbersome to say, we plan to call him "Dre". You may attempt to call him Andy, Sonny, Derson, or Anders, but I may bark at you. Just a warning.

Here is Maizie meeting her baby brother. She is very curious and very sweet to her baby brother. I can't wait to watch them grow and play together. My friends stepped up to the plate and watched her Friday and my mom and mom-in-law rearranged their busy weekends to come take care of her and meet their new grandson.

Here's the hostess shot from the shower Thursday night (thanks, Noelle, Kim, Tanya, Jessica and Sarah!). The shower featured a yummy candy buffet and we got a CRAZY amount of diapers and lots of cute little old man clothes to go with our little old man. It really was perfect timing to spend the night before Anderson's arrival surrounded by friends. Thanks for making what could've been a stressful night a really fun one!

So, he takes after his Papa? Cool!

He really is such a doll. I totally think he looks like Maizie's brother. Can't wait to meet him! That picture of Maizie meeting him is just precious!

I can't wait to meet the little gy. We have sniffles so I'm going to keep my distance for a little while. He is adorable! Congratualtions!

I think I am already in love with that grumpy old man. Can't wait to see all of you at Christmas.
