Chad and Nicole took advantage of grandma being here . . actually, grandma said “Go! Anywhere . . just get out of the house and leave me alone with the baby!”
Nicole looks so good! I could not believe how skinny she was less than one week after having a baby but she told me she wore her jeans and regular shirt home from the hospital.
They were headed out to dinner and to a movie.
Here’s Chad feeding the baby.
And Nicole eating a snow cone.
By the time this is posted, I’ll be headed home. Leaving will not be easy but I don’t want to wear out my welcome and I’m sure Vince is more than ready for me to get home.

They look good. I came home in my regular clothes with my first at 26 and then not at all with my second at 34. I still 26 years later haven’t got back to what I was before the second!!
I knew you wouldn’t waste much time going to visit!!! Everyone looks great!

They look so happy. Great bonding time for Grandma. I flew to St.Louis every 2 months after Chloe was born. The best experience getting to know your grandchild. Here, 12 yrs. later we are still best buds. My 2 precious girls are my heartbeat , as is their Mom. I’m so blessed.

I’m so glad you got to visit. Everyone looks so happy and it is good to see Chad feeding the baby. But Judy, it looks like you were only there a couple of days – you definitely need more bonding time with Adalina!
Nicole looks the pretty skinny same girl! Lucky her!! Chad and Nicole are perfect together!! Great looking couple with a pretty little girl! It is so nice to see pictures of them! I am so glad you were there! Yay!!!
I am so happy you made the trip to see your “newest” member of the family. Everyone looks so happy and healthy. I am sure it was hard for you to leave, but I think Mom and Dad have everything under control.

I am so very glad you were able to go visit. There is very little in life that holds the same promise as a new born child!

I’m so glad you go to you see Adelina at this special age. Wow, Nicole does look amazing–youth is on her side. She is glowing even with nighttime feeding. Good for her.
Linda Steller says
I am so glad you got time to visit. They look so happy and proud. That baby is so cute. Well, I can see there are going to be many more visits in the future!

What a happy little family. Chad looks like an old pro feeding the baby. I’m so jealous of Nicole being right back to skinny after the baby. Took me weeks to get back to wearing the jeans before “child”. I’ll bet the road between you guys will get worn out!!! Wouldn’t blame you for that that baby is so precious.
I could tell I have been reading your blog for a long time now as I have suspected over the past few days that you were not in Texas! Just a hunch that you were getting your arms around tht new little girl! And the two older ones as well! So glad you had some Grandma time. Bonding is not just for parents!

Wow, Nicole does look great!! Where are the grandma/baby pics?!?!! Hope your trip home was a safe one!! 🙂
Wow, Nicole looks great…if I was younger I would hate her!! LOL
No picture of you and your grandbaby??
Good for you. I’m glad you got to see the sweet baby, but I’m also happy the kids got some time for themselves. We never had anyone to leave the kids with when they were young and it wasn’t healthy for them or us.
Ranch Wife says
Those two look like they’re ready for an adventure in parenting! What a treat for them…and you! I’ll bet you soaked in every second of baby snuggles.
