The pride and joy of the next stage of our lives arrived on Tuesday, September 13th at 12:32 a.m. Dallin Douglas weighed in at a healthy 7 lbs 8 ozs and 19 inches long. We had the surprise of our life when our little man was born. He was supposed to be a she! According to the ultrasound anyway. We had been preparing for a little princess to arrive around the 6th of September but as luck would have it for Sarah she was a week late after having endured one of the hottest summers for many years. Apparently our little princess was growing a handle that last week! Can you imagine the shock in the delivery room for Mommy, Daddy and Nana when the Doctor announces we have a beautiful baby girl...with a penis! Everyone was preparing for a girl, showers all had a pink theme, pink baby items, beautiful pink outfits and pink blankets, everything pink awaited the arrival of our little Granddaughter. God does work in mysterious ways. Doug and I really didn't want to know the gender of our little Grandchild, but he surprised everyone, and was the topic of conversation at several gatherings. What a surprise, and a delightful one at that. Dallin is the pride and joy of his Nana and Poppa! He already has us wrapped around his long slender fingers. Mommy, Daddy and Dallin live with us, we are so blessed to be able to see him every day.
There is nothing more gratifying than snuggling your little grandchild. It is as if the world stops turning and you and him are the only people on earth. Supper...who needs supper! Laundry....who needs clean clothes! Dust isn't it there to write messages in. Your heart melts and the love you feel for that little person is unmatched. Dallin you are our WORLD!!!
