Two of our greatest joys in life are our grandkids and, of course, travel. The opportunity to travel to visit grandkids and, most recently, to welcome our seventh grandchild is something incredibly special.
So we offer a very special welcome to Blane Hildenbrand, born December 7 at 11:25 a.m. in the Shelby Baptist Medical Center, Alabaster Alabama. Blane weighed 7 lb. 9 oz. and measured 20 inches. He and his mommy and daddy hope to come home Wednesday. Blane's big sister, Riley, has been very helpful and picked out some flowers for Mommy and a stuffed animal for Blane that she'll deliver later today to this bright-eyed little guy.
Riley has already spent quite a bit of time holding Blane and getting to know him.
Riley's spent a lot of time up in Mommy's bed too. It's fun to kiss Blane but even more fun to get a hug from Mommy.
Grandma and Grandpa have been getting a turn too. There's nothing better.
