S: Elliott Addison Fawcett 3/17/2010
BC: Here I am, four weeks old already and I am ready for summer. !
FC: You carry your baby inside you for nine months, | in your arms for three years, | and in your heart forevermore! | My History: Elliott Addison Fawcett
1: These were some of the first pictures of me. Some people say they aren't too flattering. But give me a brake...I wasn't even born yet! My Mom and Dad thought they were wonderful...and of course my Grandmas were always gushing over them...telling EVERYONE they knew how adorable I was! Just wait till I'm in their arms...I bet they will melt for sure! Speaking of Grandmas and parents, I guess I should fill you in on all that important family stuff! My name is Elliott Addison Fawcett. Mom always liked the name Elliott and the funny thing is that she married my Dad and HIS Mom's maiden name was Elliott! How weird is that! Oh, my Mom is Carrie Ann (Batt) Fawcett and my Dad is Paul Robert Fawcett. Sort of a family thing going on there 'cause my Grandpa's name is Robert Fawcett and my Grandma is Paula (Elliott) Fawcett. On Mom's side is Grandma Carol Penninton and Mom's Dad was Teddy Batt. He passed away a few years ago...I'm sure he would have been smitten with me...I have that effect on people! | About Our Family
2: On the way to the hospital Mom and Dad stopped at this restaurant. I guess they wanted one last meal as just the two of them. The next day things would change forever...because I would enter their lives. | This is it!!! In less than 24 hours we will be a family of three!
3: Mom's in labor March 17, 2010 | My Daddy is watching the monitor. Everyone is real excited and in a hurry for me to be born! I like where I am though...it is nice and warm. Here lately I have been feeling like something is squeezing me. I'm not sure I like that!!!
4: My Daddy and the labor nurse stayed close by Mommy's side. Granny Paula was taking lots of pictures...you know how she is!!! Grandma Carol was right there too. She for sure didn't want my Mommy to give birth to me without her there! She loves us both very, very much! It is sure nice to have so many people who care about you. I guess I am a pretty lucky baby to have all of these people to love me!!!
6: Ok, I am just born and I don't think I like this! I am cold and some strange people are doing something called weighing and measuring me. Why is everything so, uh, I guess you would say bright? Can I go back where it is warm and dark for a little while? | I heard someone say, ""8 lbs 2 oz. and 19 inches". Someone else said it is 5:30.
7: This was on our way back to Mommy's labor room.. Both of my Grandmas and my Grandpa and Uncle Matthew were waiting for me and my parents. They really wanted to see me!
11: My Mommy and her Mommy | Daddy and Mommy | Me and my Mommy
12: Mommy and I are getting to know one another. She is going to take good care of me. I love her already!!!
13: This is me shortly after birth. | My Grandma Carol couldn't wait to hold me! | She says that I'm beautiful! | She loves me a lot! | I know 'cause she always kisses and tells me so!
14: Progress | That's me again with my Granny and Gramps
15: Even though I am number 9 grandchild, I know that I am loved as if I were the only one. There is always room in a Granny and Gramps heart for another grandbaby!
16: Hi Uncle Teddy, glad to meet you, you silly guy!
17: Me and my Daddy
19: May your blessings outnumber The shamrocks that grow, And may trouble avoid you Wherever you go. ~Irish Blessing
