Better Than Any Oscar!

They were throwing out a lot of big prizes at the Oscars, but we landed the biggest of them all!


Carson Edward Oberle was born in the wee hours of February 27 after a lot of nervous waiting and clock watching.


He's Rick's first grandchild so to see three generations of Oberle men with one so wee (and looking even tinier in his dad's arms) was truly a joy.


Although by baby standards, not all that small! He weighed in at a comfy eight pounds, thirteen ounces.


Look at those cute baby toes! They're so long and skinny!


It was about 3:30 or so when we got to meet him and there was no shortage of those wanting to hold the little guy. I was very happy and a little freaked out. I didn't want to drop him but he was a lot less squirmy than Lizzie. It appears that Carson actually likes to be held.


I said I wouldn't put any pix of Molly on the blog right after although to be honest, she looked more lovely to me than I could ever imagine a mom being after going through all that. But look for one in the next post or two when we visit when she's home!


As you might expect, we are over the moon with happiness and gratitude! Thanks, all, for your kind wishes and encouragement during the waiting game!

Incidentally, in the trivia department, Golden Boy Oscar is said to have come by his name through Academy librarian and eventual executive director Margaret Herrick, who thought the statue resembled her Uncle Oscar. In 1934. Glad they didn't name him Oscar...

I've been waiting for this post! Congratulations! He is just so beautiful! he looks tiny but 8 lbs is a good sized baby! I hope they are recovering well at home now. How cool to see 3 generations of men together! Enjoy all the baby snuggles. There are few things more soothing for me than holding a baby (as long as they aren't screaming/crying!!). They are just so warm and snuggly and they make my pulse slow down. A new, healthy baby is a miracle. I'll never take that for granted after sadly having friends struggle to conceive or lose babies. (sorry to bring this to a sad place - but those events have given me perspective and remind me of the miracle of a healthy baby!). Soak it all in because before you know it, he'll be reading to you!! (that's how I feel about my nephews, two of which are reading at our wedding!).

Oh, my goodness, he is precious! I love the picture of all 3 adults with the baby. You all have big smiles, and Carson is yawning like he's had enough. :-) Blessings to you all.

shoreacres said...

Sheer perfection, Jeanie! Look at those smiles, and those long fingers. Every single baby is a precious sign of hope, not to mention a blessing to the ones who receive him or her. Just think -- you're now among the hordes of grandparents who can impose hundreds of photos on us. We'll love every one!

Silvana Joanne said...

Oh my goodness!! Congratulations on the birth of this beautiful baby boy! Blessings to you and family <3

Congratulations to you all! There's nothing nicer than a new baby!
New life is such a precious gift. A big welcome to little Carson!
I still remember that feeling when I met each of my three granddaughters for the first time - I can feel the goosebumps now!
You and Rick have so much to look forward to - life won't be the same again!
I'm sure you're thinking of books you want to get for him Jeanie!!!!!
Enjoy the moment - I can feel your excitement - wonderful photos!!!!
Love
