Welcome Baby Bilbo

We joyfully welcome wee Bilbo to our clan.
8 lbs 13 oz
There was some issue as to his name. I thought Bongo but the children preferred Bilbo... so Bilbo he is!
I've caught him sucking on 1 finger, 2 fingers and a finger/thumb combo.

He was pretty alert early on... but I suppose that will happen when a baby screams for quite some time after entering the cold world!

Grandpa visits.

This is our Christmas Card picture.

Bilbo all gussied up for the picture in his new outfit from Aragorn's family. (Thank you!!)


  1. Welcome Bilbo!!!
    Julie, you shame me!!! You have your Christmas picture taken before me and I have no baby to wait on. It came out great.
    Please give Bilbo and the rest of the gang a hug from us.
