He is so beautiful, we are so proud of you. I look forward to holding him and toasting him with some of Andrew's beer.

Shannon and Andrew (and Baby Blake),

Welcome to this world, Blake! Woo Hoooooooooooooo. Shannon, you did a great job, and it couldn't have been a cake walk for you. But with Andrew riding shotgun, he was probably a very calming influence on you and Babe to be. He's a doll baby, really. WE're so happy and excited for you. Your mom and dad are on Cloud 9. Enjoy your time with him, and the You Tube made it look like he doesn't hardly cry. This one is a keeper!

Your friends,
Paula and Paul and Peanut Baby

Congratulations and a big hug to you all. We are very happy for you guys. Sherry is just heartbroken that you still aren't next door as she's always looking for another child to be grandma to. We think of you often and miss you. Blake is one lucky boy to have gotten such wonderful parents. Dad will teach him photography and juggling and Mom will make him baked goods.

It looks like Shannon just shoved a basketball under her shirt, but I can tell the end result was a beautful baby boy. He looks lovely. When will he be getting on a dirtbike Andrew?

Shirley said...
