The Grattan Family WebLog
Well, the reality is setting in, that I will be returning to work on Monday morning. According to my co-workers, they are all excited for me to come back. I think they are just tired of doing my work for me, and who can blame them, I have been so fortunate as to be able to spend the last 2 1/2 months enjoying the company first of my wonderful husband...for a couple of days, and then of our amazing son. He is truly our greatest accomplishment, something that we are both very proud of, and amazed by for sure!
I would be putting up pictures, but I am not sure how to do that stories will have to suffice for now, and you can see all the pictures you want on Scotts website I guess! I will let you all know next week how Ryan's first days of day care go....fine for him I am sure, it is me I am worried about!
Love to all!

Ok folks, I have figured it out I I will TRY to keep you updated, when I have a chance to! Things are going well here with the munchkin. Let me just tell you, I love him more than I ever could have imagined! As Scott said, he has more than doubled his weight in the first 2 months, so I am going to have to get a second job soon to pay for food and clothes for another guy Scott's size it looks like! He is quite a handsome devil, and has a great temperament....he is just perfect, even his doctor says so every time she sees him! Loving life as a mom...dreading going back to work in a week! And, of course, missing dad like crazy!
Love to all!

While Shelley is trying to figure out how to post, I'll tell you something she called to tell me earlier today. She took Ryan to the doctor for his checkup, and shots. He weighs over 12 pounds... typically it takes a child six months to double their birth weight... He managed it in 2. That's my BOY! hehe

BTW, Happy Two Month Birthday kiddo!

For now, this 'blog will mostly be a place that Shelley can tell you (and me too, since I'm currently 8000 miles away) what's happening at the Grattan homestead. The latest news, of course, is the addition of Geoffrey Ryan Grattan:

Needless to say, we're pretty fond of him, and will have a lot more pictures and stories of him in the future. In the meantime, feel free to email him and welcome him in to the world. Of course, Shelley will be reading the emails to him, but you might as well put him in your address book now. You know I'll have him sending emails shortly after he learns the alphabet (should be any day now...).

Thanks for visiting!
