Brody Tres Potter

So getting a call in the middle of the night from your pregnant daughter is never good. The one concession I had with Calli and Brendan moving to Kansas is that she has her babies Cesarean so I can schedule the cheaper flights and still be there when she makes her purpose in life complete by giving me grandchildren. But NOOOOO she choose to let her water break in the middle of the night 2 weeks before my well planned out trip, leaving me to call the airline and change my ticket, leave my DH to fend for himself, leave Jessica to finish her Sophomore year without my constant nagging, make Summer happy by leaving her the car, miss TJ's graduation from ASU, and leave Lindsey VERY STRICT instructions not to have her baby early...which she would love to do just to spite me. But all that aside i got to Kansas the next day to welcome my newest addition!

Every thing went really well, they refer to him as a preemie...but he weighed over 8lbs...not too
petite! Taylor and Keaton are thrilled with the new addition, I don't see much sign of jealousy over Brody, just the need still be the center of attention.

Taylor Still has the longest hair so she can still be the princess...

and Keaton decided that being in the pillowcase was as good as being born the normal way.

Another thing that changed was where I
be for Mothers Day, I'm sure the Arizona children really feel bad that they were not able to shower me with love and attention on my special day, but Brendan did his duty and prepared me Delicious food (which is sadly the way i like to celebrate most holidays).

Brendan's mom taught him to cook with a pinch of this and a pinch of that!

Stuffed Strawberry waffles...

and for lunch all my favorites..Chicken salad croissants, funeral potatoes, ans strawberry spinach salad.

and of course we must not forget the chocolate...Texas sheet cake!

So far it has been a great trip...a new grandchild and really good food, and today we're off to get our toes done. I could get used to this!

I may be biased, but those are some really adorable grandkids you have! Thanks for dropping life (and extra money for a plane ticket) and coming to our rescue! We love you!

Sounds like you are having a great time being grandma in Kansas. The baby is so cute and I'm sure Taylor and Keaton are loving the attention from you! Kim's being induced tomorrow so we will keep you posted! When do you come home?

Those pictures of Keaton are seriously the best ever. Literally laughed out loud when I saw them. Taylor and Brody are, of course, stinking adorable too!
