A Blessing Comes Early

Truman Evans Adcock made his entrance into this world Saturday morning December 22, 2007 at 9:10 am via c-section (my first and last section!!!). "Tru" as he will be called weighed 5pounds 13 ounces at birth and is 18 3/4 inches long. He like his brothers before him has a head full of rich dark brown hair. He arrived to meet us 5 weeks early and with a few screams! What is in a name? Truman Cloud was my maternal grandfather. He was adorable, as sweet as can be (with a feisty streak of course) But most of all he was one of my most favorite people ever. Evans Cloud was one of my mother's great uncles. He was number 10 of 12 siblings, so I have to assume he had an adaptable personality.

Tru is doing well, he is in the NICU where he is getting a little assistance with his breathing. He is a sweet as he can be, with a feisty streak as well, go figure, let's home he is also adaptable! Gage and Davis are ready to meet their new brother and we are hoping that this will happen later in the week. Davis ask each time we talk to him on the phone if "baby brother is out of his room yet". He just cries when we tell him not yet. He is ready to be a big brother ---"like Gage" he says.
