Winston James Creer

Who knew a 48 hour old 7 pound bundle could be so much fun! We are loving getting to know this wide eyed little man and seeing the wide range of his facial expressions. He made his fast and furious entrance into this world 5 hours after my water broke and with one push-but don't be deceived it was NOT without pain, drama or incident but it did happen all very quickly and if you want all the gory details you can call me! My darling nurse Dori said Winston's birth might have been one of the most intense fast labors she ever assisted. We are glad he is here so safe and healthy and he has quickly become a popular boy with all the amazing nurses here at the hospital and his little girlfriends in the nursery (he is one of only 4 baby boys here right now).

We are doing great but staying in the hospital a few extra days so the doctors can keep an eye on me- but we're not minding the extra help too much so don't feel too bad for us. But now to the real reason you are reading this, Winston. After much debate we settled on this name, Winston had always been one of the original possibilities but we weren't sure on it when it came down to biting the bullet but since he looks like an old man, we thought it fit. Don't they say all babies look like Winston Churchill?

This little guy has one set of lungs and he is very alert. Of course it makes sense he would be loud and communicative since he is a Creer.


He loves to snuggle!

This was a picture of Winston after he impressed all the girls in the nursery with his break dancing moves. Now they are all fighting over him.
Being born is hard work!
Dan brags that he was voted best lips in high school, so I guess that is where these lovelies came from.
Meeting some of mom's friends.
His face while watching CNN with Dad and surveying the current economic landscape. Winston thought it was bad news.
Life on earth is a little a lot to take in, so sometimes I just need to take a break.

Teaching mom and dad about this whole parenting thing is hard work. I cry, and then they still don't get it so I have to cry some more. Parents, when will they learn?
At least I figured out that when mom is not available I can snack on my own hands.

Now the Dr. says we all need to get some sleep. Thanks for your calls, emails, and visits. We feel so loved and blessed by all the wonderful people in our life sharing in this new little bundle of joy.
