This is Grant Robert Warren.  

The last post was written and scheduled a few hours before my water broke at 2:00 am on Friday morning, May 30th and our baby was born 39 and a half hours later. It has been a busy week! Within the next 2 weeks I’ll be posting about the interesting experience. I’ll be posting on Instagram in the meantime. Then I’ll get back to more consistent posts later.

Thank you for all your enthusiasm and encouragement! We are so in love with this baby. What a steep learning curve.

P.S. Thank you for the surprise gift, Ashley!

    Christina you and the hubby made the cutest baby! Seriously, he is SO precious! I’m so glad he’s healthy and happy. I can’t wait to see more pictures of him! Does he have colored eyes?! One of my cousins is 1/2 Korean and 1/2 German and he is dirty blonde with green eyes, it’s crazy and I’m jealous haha.

    • AW Wow! Thank you, Sam!! Yes, healthy and happy! He has blue/gray eyes now and I hear that they can change over time. It is pretty crazy. I was surprised when I first saw them. My dad and Chris have blue eyes so it could happen. 🙂

  • I love the name. So classic and wonderful. He is absolutely beautiful!

    • Thank you so much, Sarah! The name felt kind of outfield to us at first but now it seems right. Yay!!

    • Girl it was crazy but the amnesia is already setting in. LOL It really wasn’t so bad. Thank you!!! XO

  • Grant is perfect!!! I can’t wait to see more pictures of you beautiful family!

    • Mary! Thank you! Right now as I’m just at home, family pics are all I’m taking! Actually, my husband is better at breaking out the camera. I’m just trying to get breast feeding down! 🙂
