Grant Sheffield Winchester

I'll tell you what, the 2nd time around childbirth was definitely a more relaxed experience. It's alot more enjoyable being "in the moment" than being caught up in your own fears. Nature does it's thing pretty damn well. With that said the 24th finally came and Diane gave birth to our 2nd son, Grant Sheffield Winchester. Everything went according to plan and the little guy was born at 9:25 am, 7lbs 9oz, 21 1/4" long. Check out the pics!

For the 2nd time in a row Diane and I had a great experience here. The Women's Care Center (maternity ward) is full of great nurses.

Mommy and Daddy ready and waiting!
The cosmonaut...it might look like I'm goofing off here, but this is one of the most intense times life can deliver. Right now Diane is getting anesthesia and being prepped for surgery. This is the longest 20 minutes of your life! Turns out it's a great time to say a prayer or two.
Turned out to be a crisp, clear fall day.

Here's the man!

Words fail me.
Made it outside just in time for a sunset skyline shot of Bridgeport.
Gabe has been handling his new duties as Big Brother quite well. He hooks up Mommy with fresh diapers for Grant. Uncle Tommy also taught him some new spitball skills at the hospital, watch out this kid has accuracy!
Mooommmmmyyyyy I want num-nums!
Ready for his first car ride home! Daddy drove like an old granny.

This is our favorite part, nothing like taking your children home.

Gabe was a huge help getting Grant out of his car seat.

So everyone is now home and adjusting to Grant's presence. Mommy is recovering well, Grant is definitely getting his poop on and Gabe is still a 2 yr old if you know what I mean.
