I am just back from seeing a special little man. Roland IV. Sounds like a king, right? He pretty much is royalty as far as I'm concerned. It blew my mind to see Courtney (who part of me still pictures as a 15 year old girl in a 17th street sweatshirt) as a mom. But it was awesome! I'm so proud of this new little family!
Courtney and Baby Ro.
The peanut handoff.
Auntie Gretchen falling in love with the latest model of Gehweiler.
Look at him!!! He is so incredibly sweet, I can't even deal.
Smiling in his sleep. Doesn't he have the most adorable hair?
The "mommys." HAHAHAHAHA.
Courtney, thank you for your service as a surrogate, HAHAHAHA.
Making our dreams come true!
(the real) Mama and baby.
He has a funny look on his face here.
Like, "What you talkin' 'bout Willis?" or something.
Kisses from Daddy.
Have you noticed his boxing gloves yet?
Retro. See? This is why I really need a good Digital SLR camera.
To capture such moments.
Argh. Why can't my mom hit it big in Atlantic City? Please.
My turn to hold baby Roland.
And of course he's SCREAMING.
(but looking darling in the onesie I bought him when he was in utero!)
He just wanted to walk around. He settled right down.
I think he likes me because he feels safe, you know, low to the ground and all.
This one is fuzzy, but I like it because you can see just how tiny he is.
I know he will grow up so fast.
Then, I'll be at his high school graduation, and because I'll be pushing 50, I'll be needing to make myself feel better...
And I'll tell all his friends about the time he pooped and I changed his diaper and I saw him pee in his own face.
He is beautiful. Amazing. I can't wait to get to know him. CONGRATULATIONS COURTNEY & RO!!!
