Our beautiful new grandbaby

Here is Jackson Nolan Wilkinson IV. We missed his birth as his mom was only in labor 8 hours total and it takes us almost 11 to drive it. He was born at 1:41 PM on Sunday and hold on to your hats. He weighed 10 lbs 10 oz, 23 1/2 inches long. He is a sweet baby and we absolutely adore him.:inlove:

I cannot thank you enough for all your lovely good wishes and prayers! We arrived around 6 pm our time safe and sound. Oh and he is so big, my beautiful new little hoodie will probably fit him for about 2 weeks! :lol:

I’m sorry you missed it, but you got there nice and early anyway! He’s adorable!! Congratulations!:cheering:

awwwwww he is sooo cute!!!

oh my!! what a precious little guy… Is that a proud Grammy holding him???

:balloons:Congratulations on your new Grandbaby boy!:balloons:

:cheering::cheering::muah::cheering:he is a BEAUTYFUL baby!:hug:


congratulations to your family! what a handsome, beautiful little (BIG) guy:heart:

Congratulations on the new addition to your family :slight_smile:

He is gorgeous! I love big babies… not so afraid to hold them!

nonny2t…Congratulations and I am so glad everything went so smoothly after a period of concern. Is that you with tear filled eyes holding the baby? What a proud nonny! :slight_smile:

Remind me…is nonny Italian for grandmother? I can’t quite recall.

No, it is a combination of Nana and my name Donna. I wanted to be called Nana, but my sil’s mother insisted she be called that so this was my solution so Nonny I am! I[B] was[/B] crying. For one thing, I was thinking of my dear sweet fil who would have been so thrilled to be able to see his greatgrandson named Jackson IV. When my son was born, he was supposed to be named Jason, but my fil wanted him to be named Jack so badly so I said, ok. He and my mil adored my son and he only lived 2 years to see him. He passed away of cancer at 54 years old and never saw any of the rest of his grandchildren, so it was a bittersweet moment. That and the fact being a grandmother is something I have wanted since my kids were in high school! lol I now have my two boys so I am ready for that little girl!

Well…I understand that slight poignant bitter sweet thing but I am so thrilled for you. Does this little one Jackson 1V know how much knitting he will get over the coming months? grin


Congratulations! What a beautiful (and big) baby boy!!!:cheering::muah:

What a beautiful baby! Congratulations! My youngest grandson is the “III’d” and I think that is a wonderful tradition – to pass on the name.

Congratulations - he is beautiful. I am so happy for you and your family.
