Grand Arrival

Benjamin Wyatt made his Grand Appearance late last night, weighing in at 7lbs 10oz and 20 ½” long he showed just how stubborn he could be already by holding out until 12:26am this morning, kind of takes after his Daddy in my opinion.
Benjamin Wyatt our new Grandson

Elisa went into labor about 11:00pm night before last and to make a long story short nearly twenty five hours went by before the birth was to happen, it appears that Benjamin was holding out for an August Birthday since he waited until the end of the month to make his arrival, both Elisa and Benjamin are doing good from what we know right now and he is a handsome young boy if I say so myself.

It appears we have a Baby Week going on in our family with the birth of the colt and Benjamin both within days of each other, I look forward to possible stories of Benjamin riding this colt when they both get a little older and for now you all know I will have a few things to say about the both of them in addition to everything else, family life is so much fun when pleasant surprises like this thrown into the mix.

My posts will most likely be scarce for a little while as we are loading up and making a “Road Trip” to New Mexico first thing in the morning to go and spoil him just a little bit, I will check in as I can find a computer to borrow and will post what I can from the road so to say, don’t give up on me as I will be back to as normal as my life ever is real soon.
