Great Grandparents

It is incredible to think that Bryant has a lot of his great grandparents alive. I only had one great grandparent alive when I was born, my mother's mother's father. He wasn't much a father to my grandmother. It is sad to think that he had such a long life, yet my grandmother's mother passed away when she was little girl, and doesn't really remember her.

Here are my mom's parents with their great grandsons (yes we need to have a girl!). In the picture from top to bottom, left to right are my grandmother, my grandfather, Bryant, Isaiah (my cousin Jr.'s son, Jr. passed away last year. We miss him so much), Eli, and Max. This was taken at Bryant's Welcome Home party one week after his birth.

This was taken Sept 7.
I wish he knew my dad's parents. My grandmother, Maria, just passed away last December six months before he was born. She would have been so happy to know that I had a son.

I also wish he would have met my great aunt Tachita. I miss her so much.

Here is Bryant with Phil's mother's mother, Kay. Since she wasn't able to make it to the Welcome Home party, we decided to take him to visit her at the convalent home she lives at. We got their around 8 p.m. to find everyone asleep. We didn't know if we should wake her up or just go home. Phil went to her room to find her "watching" the Olympics, so we decided to wake her to see Bryant. We are glad we did. She was so excited to see him. We, also, took her a picture of Bryant and us. We were very nervous to place Bryant on her to take this picture because she is so fragile. She was born in 1918, she turned 90years old around the time of my baby shower!
Here is Bryant with Phil's father's mother, Lupe. This was taken at the Welcome Home party.
Since Victor wasn't able to make it to the Welcome Home Party, we took Bryant to visit him. You can see the difference between Bryant with Lupe above (7/27/08) and below (8/31/08) A month later and he is so much bigger. He was able to hold his head up for his picture with Victor.


I am so sorry to everyone that I have not updated my blog. But it seems like Bryant does not like his picture posted. He is okay if I checking my e-mail, but the second I am ready to update my blog he starts to cry and cry. In his defense, he also cries when I am ready to sit down and eat.

This was taken our first day home. He was two days old. I wanted him to do something, but he slept so soundly, just like his father.

These two pics were taken 4 days after he was born.

Check out the back hair! Uncle Eddie is going to have to show him how to wax it off. Phil and I were really surprised how hairy he was considering that we aren't hairy.

In the next photo he is one month (Aug 18). His fisty personality shows clearly in this picture. He was tired of our photo shoot.

He was so strong. I told the Dr. at his 4 week check up that he could lift his head, but the doctor didn't believe me. I should have taken the photo. He could also crawl very slowly, but crawl. I know, I know, I have become that mother that is showing off her great her kid is.

(Sept 4)

(Sept 5) The mandatory bath photo. Phil wouldn't let me take a full nude shot to show his prom date in the future.

This was taken on Aug 18. Even though he looked big to me he was still little compared to the next picture.
This was taken Sept 7 my uncle Rigo's birthday party. Can you see the difference? By the way he was sound asleep while the Marichi was playing, the trumpet guy was right behind him.
