I am very pleased to introduce to the world, the newest addition to the cast of characters in “The Life of a Father of Five
Tobias James6lbs 8oz
21 inches
Born 6:55pm


First and foremost, I am happy to report that “C” (the new mother) is doing well! 
I am also very happy to report that the “cute as a button” baby is doing very well!
Finally, I am happy to report that #1 of 5 (the new father) is doing well. 
Although everyone is doing well, continued thoughts and prayers for this new little family would be greatly appreciated!

I was at work when the excitement all started taking place.  I was being given updates over the telephone as they happened.
By 9pm we had enough staff on that I could burn a couple of hours of my vacation time to drive out to the hospital and see how everyone was doing. 
The Mother of Five was already there visiting with “C”.  I arrived and heard the whole story from start to finish. 
Prior to leaving #1 of 5 took me into the nursery to see the baby while the Mother of Five stayed with “C”. 

Since “C” was required to stay in her room, the baby was still required to stay in the nursery, and the Mother of Five wanted to stay with “C”, I (unfortunately) did not get any photos of baby with mom, baby with grandparents (except myself), or baby with great grandparents.  I promise to get some tomorrow, as it turns out there are some new uncles and aunts that are pretty excited to meet their new nephew!
Since it was only us, it turned out to be a nice little little Grandfather / Father / Son moment…
