So I don't usually get very personal here on my blog but this week I really need to. While I did get some fabulous books delivered and I will show them at the end, the most IMPORTANT delivery this week was not a book.
I've told you before that I'm a math teacher and you've met my daughter through her incredible banners and the StuckInBooks logo and design. But I need to tell you that I have two adult children. My beautiful daughter got married a year ago last October. My son still lives at home and is my computer genius.
This last Friday, my daughter gave birth to my first grandchild and I would like you to meet him. It was a difficult labor that ended in a c-section. Turns out the cord was wrapped around his neck twice and around his arm. But my daughter was a rock star! She spent 2 1/2 hours on her hands and knees during labor trying to keep the babies heart rate up. I couldn't be prouder.
Meet Sebastian Christopher.
He was born at 2:24 PM on
Friday July 27th,
weighing 7 lbs 4 ozs,
19 1/2 inches long.
His very dark hair and coloring come from my husbands side of the family but he has huge blue eyes. Sure hoping he keeps those!
Mom and son are doing wonderfully. Everyone is tired but very happy. Here are some more pics for ya.
This one is right after he was born and brought in the nursery from the OR.

Check out those eyes!!!
Meet the whole family!

That's me with my boy Bastian!!!
My husband couldn't be happier!
Don't you agree that HE was the BEST delivery of the week!
So I've decided to make my boy, Bastian, an honorary reviewer here at StuckInBooks until he's old enough to tell me his opinion on books. You know he's gonna love books with me as his Grandma. Taught his mother to love books too. She was listening to the Pandemonium audiobook while she was in labor - so yeah we are a reading kind of family!
Did get some books too. Here's the list:
(After Daemon round with Augustus in the #YACrushTourney I felt the need to read this book.)
So what was delivered to you this week?
