Baby Stefan - new life

Our little grandson was born on Friday 30 March at 1:45 pm, weighing in at 3,34kg.  I was so blessed, I was Bianca's birth partner and could be with her throughout the C-section.  I was there to hold her hands and help her relax while they administered the spinal block.  I could sit beside her and watch my little grandson come into this world.  What an awesome experience.
My very first view of him emerging from his mommy's womb.
I immediately noted his big hands:-)
Just before his first cry. Just look how blue those little hands and feet are.
Slightly cleaner and with a clean bill of health from the Pediatrician. Exercising those little lungs.
Meeting Mommy....what an awesome moment.
In Ouma's arms for the first time.  Weighed and already given shots.
Then it was into the incubator until Mommy came out of surgery.
In Mommy's arms.
Ouma and Oupa admiring their new grandson.
Such a beautiful, perfect child.
One day old and already only wants Mommy.
Oupa's big hands completely covering Stefan's little body.
Even now, after a week this is still his preferred position.
Going home and looking so tiny in his baby chair.
Leane and Dewan couldn't wait to meet their new cousin and couldn't get close enough either.
Dewan...such a beautiful child.
Leane, being the BIG cousin...insisted that she needed to hold him too.

Thank you for the opportunity to brag about my new, tiny little baba.
