So what do you think?!?!

Update: Chase just called a little bit ago and this is the convo I had with hubby over that conversation. Thought you might enjoy :0)

Me: How much does Skyler weigh?
Hubby: 6 lbs. 13 oz.
Me: Oh he's a little guy
Hubby: :) (Smile)
Me: How long is he?
Hubby: I don't know.
Me: Any hair?
Hubby: Dunno
Me: uhhhhh you're such a dude ~~ details man details!!
Hubby: hahahahahahahahaha!!!!

Okay we are still just thrilled, and giddy, and excited, and CAN'T wait to meet him, and, and, and. . . . . . . I could go on and on!!


So do think that Grandpa and Grandma Winslow is too much for a baby to say ? ! ?


We are so excited!! He came screaming his way into the world late this afternoon and we couldn't be more thrilled. We'll be heading up in the morning to meet our beautiful new bouncy grandbaby boy!!

Mom and Dad are totally and completed exhausted, so as badly as we'd like to go up this evening we will refrain and go in the morning. There was so much going on today that I was unable to go up to the hospital today, and Dick had some craziness of his own, but God was in it all!! So we will practice a little patience and meet Skyler officially in the morning!!

Mom's appointment went okay. She will be having a Myelogram next Thursday to check her spine. We will actually find out the results at the end of August. I'll will be posting more about this at a later day. But we would really appreciate your prayers for mom; she is tough, but this will be a difficult test for her.

So let me close with a question? Do you like MiMi Dawn, Grandmother Dawn (yuk :0), NaNa Dawn, or Grandma Dawn or what do you think? Do you have another suggestion? I'd love to hear them ~~ come on think outside that box after all I am not your average Grandparent, no-sir-ree I enjoy some originality in my life :-)

And Dick, probably Grandpa or PaPa Dick. Or hey you, gaagaa-googoo Yep he so doesn't care, he's just thrilled HE'S HERE!!!!!

Blessings and lots and lots of G-ma hugs,


  1. Congrats!!! You are NOT old enough to be called anything like "Grandma", so I vote for MiMi or Nana!
    Check out my blog tomorrow- something for you!

  2. How exciting! I like "Nana Dawn"!

  3. Dawn,
    Congrats on becoming a grandma! Wow! I love the name Skyler! I vote for MiMi, that's so cute. For your hubby I like PaPa.
    Thanks so much for visiting my blog :)

  4. CONGRATULATIONS! There is absolutely nothing like grandchildren. When I think of the first time I saw my child with her own child, it brings tears to my eyes all over again. I love Gigi Dawn or just plain Gigi. Mine call me Mema and I love that too. Sometimes our best efforts at "making" them call you something don't work cause it just won't come out of a baby's mouth and they call you whatever they want to. My mom's grands called her "Nannoo" because the oldest one tried to say grandma and it came out Nannoo everytime....thus, it stuck. Congrats again and I can't wait to read about the first time you see Skyler.

  5. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I also vote for MiMi or Nana! How exciting! Have a safe trip to see the baby. I can't wait to see pictures. I am praying for you, and I am praying for your mom! Keep us updated!
