baby Cooper at last

Ok, I know this is going to confuse some people, and for that, I'm sorry. Just try to follow along as best you can.  

Today, one of our girls gave birth to a beautiful baby boy...Cooper. Not to be confused with Cooper Maxwell, the delicious character in my book, To Katie With Love. Both Cooper's are special to me, of course, but today, baby Cooper takes the top spot. 

Since I spent a good part of the night and the wee hours of the morning texting with Lauren while she was in labor, I'm fairly well exhausted, but I wanted to make this announcement just the same. 

Cooper Jackson Beaman was born at 253pm and weight 8lbs 1oz and 21.5 inches long.

Now, if you ask Lauren, she'll tell you the baby's name has nothing to do with my characters (Cooper is from To Katie With Love, and Jackson is from the upcoming Suddenly Sorceress) but I'm just going to ignore that and pretend she did it on purpose.  

And for the record, baby Cooper will be addressing me as Nana. We will save the G-word for my mother, and Mike's mother.   They've worn it for a lot longer, so I decided they can keep it. I'll use something different. Something less...old. Because, let's face it...I'm not old enough to be someone's...umm...errr...g-word.

Until the next time...I'll be watching for a constant stream of pictures to come my way!
