The Little Grublet is Born!

Hi everyone! Karen has been a little busy, so she asked me to post the BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENT! Yes, that's right - the long awaited little Grublet has been born and he has a name and especially chubby cheeks and lots of hair!
Details:
Elijah Dale Grube
8 lbs, 2 oz, and 21 inches.
DOB: August 11, 2009 at 9:20 PM



I'm sure she'll post more photos and the whole story soon. There were lots of interesting and humorous details that will be much better told in Stella style prose.

Congratulations Grube family!!!

Over and out,
Kerri Smith

My heart leaps at the sight of this darling Grubelet! Sweet Elijah is every bit as adorable and wonderful as I thought he would be...you can already tell he has been blessed in the "spunk" department! He's amazing. Pure and simple...he's amazing.

I also love the guest blogging of one Kerri Smith...my heart leaps at the sight of her words and the sound of her voice!

Oh little Elijah, we already love you so much! Can't wait to see the nursery your mom and dad have put together...wait til you get to know them better, they are the COOLEST.

I still remember the day your mom hinted that you were on your way...it was on a CHRISTMAS post at my blog (which, incidentally, probably hasn't been updated since Christmas, but that's a whole 'nother story)...I think your mom's looking for some good "Mom" and "Dad" stockings this year...! You've done a wonderful thing, little E.D. by giving your parents those new titles of "Mom" and "Dad." You're off to a really good start, buddy...and you've got lots of love in your life like you wouldn't believe.

Congratulations to the entire Grube - Whaley - GCC - Army - Blogging Arena contingency!!!

(Oh...and may I suggest a nipple shield if the going gets tough. Best $5 I ever spent.)
