Baby Juan...another bundle of joy!

I just love my grandchildren so much...and now I have another:-)  Little Juan was born on Monday 4 June at 5:45pm.  These photos were taken shortly after his birth.
He was born at 38 weeks and weighed in at 2,93kg.  His weight on discharge was a mere 2,7kg.
48cm tall;-)
His mommy got a huge fright when he was born...his head and face was very blue and bruised.  Yesterday when they were discharged most of the bruising had gone and he now only has slight bruising around his little mouth...what an entrance into this world.
Such beautiful little feet.
He already looks very much like his older brother, Dewan...same mouth and blond hair. Yes...the Jacobs mouth;-)
...a kiss from mommy.

Today Sketch no 6 was revealed over at Scrap Africa .  Go and see what lovely layouts the Design Team created and take part in this challenge to win a super prize.  The sketch looks like this:

Here is my layout of one of our little prince charming;-)
Supplies used:  Printed paper: Websters (All about Me); Blooms: Petaloo; Cage Chipboard: Enmarc; Birds: K&Co; Letter Stickers: Basic Grey, Making Memories tiny alpha; Other: Tim Holtz Distress Markers, doilie.

This was Lukas' school portrait in 2010.  I played with my Tim Holtz Distress Markers and "painted" the birds, branches and leaves with it.  I am so not used to using something like this on a page that I was super nervous when I started "messing" on my background paper.  Seems I will need to stretch myself with new techniques.



  1. Huge huge congratulations to you. You so much deserve all the joys this year brings.

    And he is almost exactly the size my Mr L was at birth ( smallest of all my babies) and I do remember him also dipping to about that weight at about 3 days.
