Knox, Knox

My fourth grandchild and third grandson, Knox Winckler, was born on Thursday night, February 25. He's a big boy, born at 9 lbs, 8 oz., but we tend to grow them big in our family. Mystie once again gave birth at home with our wonderful midwife, Fran, after going ten days past her due date of the 15th. I was really hoping she'd go ahead and have the baby while I was in Mexico, but Knox thought he'd wait for me to return home, plus a few days - much to Mystie's chagrin!

Best of all, he's healthy, Mystie is recovering speedily, and little Knox is on the receiving end of a lot of love!

What a darling :) He's adorable! A precious new life.

I just find it so contemplative - I couldn't keep any of mine in past 34 weeks and some people can't get them out 42+ weeks. What is lacking in me? If my carrying and delivery history would have been different, I would have had at least 6 kids, truly, I would have, we wanted to....
