The most handsome man I know weighs all of 8 lbs, 5 oz. and is just 20.5 inches long - and he is perfect in every single way.
Meet my gorgeous great nephew, Lucas Owen Stout. He is the son of my niece Amanda and her husband Steve. He was born on Monday night. I'm already in love. The day of his birth was one of those wonderful family events - absolute shared joy. His nana (my sister-in-law Donna) did an awesome job keeping everyone up on events by text message all day. I talked to my brother - who is now a Grandpa!! - just a couple of hours before the little guy was born. Lots of texts between Great Grandpa, his great aunties, and his great-great auntie!
Last night, I drove to Richmond to meet this gorgeous little man and visit with his mommy and daddy. We had a wonderful visit. Lucas is alert...his beautiful eyes keep an eye on everything. His mommy and daddy were tired, but kind enough to let me hang with them for an hour, and let me hold this gorgeous little man.
He is amazing - the true definition of bundle of joy!
What has brought you joy this week?
I'm still looking for someone to help me bring more joy into the world by Paying It Forward. Can you help me with that?
