Leonard Elvis Jones


Leonard E. Jones was born at 11.54 am on Saturday 30 April 2011.



Here he is coming home from the hospital. I'm afraid that in all the photos I have of him so far, he's either asleep or covered in gore. He's lovely to me in whatever condition, though.





Basil was pleased to see us. He's coping well with the changes.

My next post might also be a while coming; I'm going to write about his birth and will need to do it in small instalments.

I know this is a cliche but he does look like an old soul! Glad to see Basil hasn't sacrificed his central place in the family circle.

Glorious. Love his name too!

Bubba - sigh.
Basil looks very territorial - like the big brother ignoring the usurper. Hilarious.

I've said it before but I'll say it again, congratulations! That's great news.

'asleep' photos OK, excellent even. growing is just exhausting and he needs to be asleep for that.
love to all Family Baz.

Congratulations Laura and Dorian... and Baz!

Asleep photos are the easiest to take. You tend to have your hands full the rest of the time.

Congratulations!
