The Baby Is Here!

Babies are everywhere, or almost everywhere, and we’ve got one now too.  One happy grandma here!

Mazen Duke Younger-Monson was born at 3:38 in the morning on September 7 at Martha Jefferson Hospital in Charlottesville, Virginia. He weighs eight pounds and is 20.5 inches long!  Here he is:

Everywhere Babies is witten by Susan Meyers with illustrations by Marla Frazee (Houghton Mifflin, 2001).  Babies adore the book because babies like to look at babies! I hope Mazen likes the copy I bought just for him. I’m bringing it with me when I go back to the hospital to visit him tonight. Can’t wait!

  1. Wonderful news! Congratulations Grandma and entire family! Little Mazen has certainly chosen a great family to call his own. He’s so cute and what a bigun’ – pinch those cheeks for me!

    Can’t tell from the picture that you’re very happy… 😉


  2. Lovely baby; congratulations….doesn’t seem that long ago that we were sharing our own pregnancies and birth experiences.


    1. hey susan, sorry to butt in on your question, but it’s an old arabic name. Maybe someone in one of their families has arabic ties? oh and congrats, Barbara! Grandchildren are the best! You’re in for a real treat. 🙂


  3. So happy for you. Being a grandma is such a joy. You look like a natural. Your family is in my prayers. Enjoy this special time. I’m going to pick up a copy of that book for a baby gift, looks like a sweet book.


  4. Congrats to you and all. We were away at the beach for a few days, but checking Kath’s tweets all day, and night! So excited for you and your husband to enter this new chapter of your life!


  5. Such exciting news! Congratulations to you and your whole family on handsome, sweet baby boy Mazen’s arrival— Enjoy-Enjoy!


  6. Thanks to each and every one of you for your congratulations! Mazen is doing well and so is Mom, although she’s missing a lot of sleep. I hate it that I’m not there to help more but plan to see him again this weekend with my younger daughter, Laura and her fiance Matt.
