Welcome to the family sweet Gabriel Russell, Hillary and Jake's new baby boy! He was born March 1st at 4:18 a.m. at a birthing center in Pleasant Grove, Utah weighing in at 7 lbs. 10.5 oz. and 20 1/2" long. It was my first time to witness a water birth and Hillary did marvelous for a first time Mommy. Jake and I were there along with the 3 midwives and her Doula and dear friend, Becca. Enjoy the pictures.

Gabriel loves to suck his thumb.
And Toby loves his new little brother.
In other Grandbaby news, our sweet Reagan got a taste of her first snow, literally. The first thing she did was bend down to taste it. For a little Hawaiian Coconut she sure loves to play in the snow. Jesse and Tyree came out to play too.
My Angel Mommies showing their girls how to make snow angels.
Our Darling little Tyree wasn't sure about the snow angel thing,
and Miss Reagan flapped her "wings" once and then she was ready to move on to more snow play.
I think winter has been a little long for sweet Tyree, she was ready to go inside and get out of the snow, but little Reagan kept plunging into the white stuff face first and coming up laughing.
Lot's of fun things going on in our ever growing family. Hope you are having a fun winter too.
I will finish up the cruise posts next week.
