In honor of our fourth grandchild's birth,
I'm giving away four of my oops! burp cloths.
Winners will be chosen from comment leavers.
I've already picked the lucky numbers.
But I'm not telling what they are!
If you live close and you win
and I know you,
you can choose your oops! in person.
If you live far away,
you'll have to trust me!
Good luck!
p.s. Who knows when
I'll get to see the baby.
I'm sick!

Congrats to Amber and Chris!! WOW - sounds like you need a nap Steph! Hope you get feeling better soon.

the blacks said...

Yahoo! Congrats to everyone and 3 cheers for healthy babies! I am so glad to hear all is well. I am in love with the name Tagg. So, I am pretty sure I need to be comment number 4 to "win" an oops. (june 4 at 4 am, grandbaby number 4 etc) Maybe I will just comment 4 times in a row! :) Anyway, congrats and I am also super excited for upcoming grandbaby number 5! :)

Melis said...

Whoa! What a night/morning! Here's to hoping you get some much needed rest & start feeling better asap! Congrats about sweet lil' Tagg! Can't wait to see pictures of 'eem! Wishing you well!

Peg and Parker said...

Yay! Tagg is here! Cute name and doesn't Tagg Hansen have a wonderful ring to it for say, football, basketball, baseball or High School Musical 10? (Cue the Announcer voice) "Tagg Hansen on deck..... girls who wish a signed photo of Tagg should line up single file behind the dugout." Just threw that High School Musical thing in to see if you were paying attention. He might very well want to sing and dance you know. Sorry you are sick Steph. I'll bring you chicken soup if you want me to.

Em said...

That's so exciting! Congrats to Amber and Chris and to you surviving (barely it sounds like) at night with 3 grandkids. I'm so excited for all of you. Hope you feel better soon and get to see that sweet baby soon. Can't wait to see the pictures.

Rach said...

Congratulations! I am so excited to see pictures of Tagg- I'm sure he's adorable...it seems to run in the family, :-D
Feel better soon so you can go see your new grandson!

MeL said...

Poor poor you! And lucky lucky you at the same time! FYI, the future pharmacist that I live with recommends two benadryl (or Waldryl in our house) whenever someone can't sleep. And if he's okay with it, I'm okay with it, and you need it tonight! Also, what if I want to be comment number 8? Should I comment after this? I'm afraid that's cheating though. Also, I'm excited to see the new adorable baby that was made by your adorable family!

Sue said...

Yeah...4 healthy grandbabies...with a 5th on the way....lot of great blessings in your lives....I think poor Drew he doesn't get to see this one in person for two years (well actually 22 months)but, he will see pictures. And poor you.....so sorry you are not feeling well, and not feeling well with 3 little grandkids under foot lol....it is hard to be sick, and even harder to be sick with little ones. I can not wait to see pictures!! I am curious how the kids will react to the new addition in their family. The girls have already gotten to experience being the "big sisters", but Tate, I am so curious as to how he is going to react to mommy holding the new baby....Thanks for posting, and I am sure number 8 isn't the winner, but number 4 sounded like one you probably would choose due to the fact that the baby was born on the 4th, at 4 in the morning...but, then again, 8 pounds 8 ounces...take care of yourself....your whole family needs you today, and every day, what would they do without you. Get Well!

meg said...

Yay!! Congrats on another cute offspring... I hope yu get better so soon cause I don't know how you are gonna function here in a short while if you can't hold and show off that newbie... oh- and way cute name- I love it! They are such a cute family!

firstday said...

Cogratulations!! Pictures??? :)

jckhadlocks said...

Don't you love it when children wake up early crying? sounds like my mornings! And since I plan on getting prego sometime soon I would be thrilled to win! Hope you feel better..

PS.. I watched the whole season of Grey's Anatomy online and I cried every episode.. I know I'm a baby but the season finale was sooo good!

cammac said...

Fat & Sassy said...

OH MY STARS!!!! Congratulations!!! Grandbambinos are the best!!! I'm sure #4 comment hit it on the head and is the winner...and I loved Peg's...anyway, I could use some oops! cloths because I have #6 on the way, but not till Oct. I ♥ Tagg, that is a great name...my daughter Stephanie's little ones all start with T!!! Hope you are feeling a little better and have been able to get some rest, instead of feeling like you're the one who just gave birth!

Amelia Johnson said...

It's amazing what a giveaway will do to your comment count... I don't want to win though. I have secret hookups! You rock. Hope you feel better soon!

Hansen Fam said...

Oh my gosh, Stephanie!! What a night. I asked Chris if he needs help with the kids. Seriously you can bring them over to my house. Please post pictures of little Tagg soon or have Chris. I am dying to see him!!

Katee said...

Oh bummer! Amber emailed and asked for my phone so she could text me but I just missed her I bet! Glad I checked your blog. Is she going home today-she told me she likes to leave ASAP. Can't wait for pics! It was her due date right? Or the 5th? Mine was the 2nd so I know it's close.

kacee said...

Brad's Mom said...

Another handsome grandson. (How could he be anything else) You are such a lucky grandma. I hope your cold gets better and Amber is up and around soon. Thanks for the "mom" comment on Brad's blog!!!

The Fletchies said...

I'm so sorry that you are sick! At least from your post it seems like the baby is healthy and happy and thats important! Good luck with the grandkids! Hope you feel better soon!

Jen Beals said...

shalae said...

I can't wait to see a picture of the baby! I hope you get well soon so you can hold him, and I also hope 25 is one of your lucky numbers!!!

Arnett said...

What an excellent post! A very entertaining timeline, an exciting announcement, and giveaways! My favorite part of the timeline was "Halleigh wakes Tate up for no good reason. I send her to her room." You are too funny! Congrats on the grandbaby, and I hope you feel better soon! I can't wait to see pictures of the cutie!

chris & amber said...

You are a trooper, Mom! Thanks so much for all you do for me & my family! What a fun little post. And, thanks to everyone's sweet comments about Tagg! We're loving him! Mom, I better hear that you took a 4-5 hour nap today! ♥ ya!

Maria said...
