Pictureless But Home

I am back in Florissant now. With my usual obsession with meeting schedules, I got out the door exactly when I wanted to on Thursday morning and was in at the hospital in Nashville by 1:30 P.M. and got to hold little Daniel for the first time. He is so cute and precious, and so little. Wow, you forget how small they are when you haven't held a newborn in a long time. That's when I realized that I'd forgotten to bring my camera. Fortunately Donna had hers, but she won't be home for several days yet. Deborah is doing great. She and Pat came home with Daniel yesterday afternoon and Donna fixed a great dinner for all of us. It was a short visit but worth the effort. I left Pat and Deborah's this morning at 5:00 A.M. hoping to miss the bad weather that looked to be coming through MO. I had rain through TN and KY, and hit some sleet in IL, but once I turned north on 57, within minutes, the rain and ice stopped and I was on dry roads all the way home. I am, however, seriously tired.
So, since I don't have any pictures of our new, cute addition to our family, scroll down and click on Deborah's name on the Family & Friends Blog list. She has some great pics on her blog.

Daniel loved meeting his Papa last Thursday! He's already changing just after 6 days, but I guess you knew that would happen.

Thanks for blessing us by coming last week, and thank you for sharing Mom. I am already dreading Saturday, but I know she has to got home to take care of someone else!
