Let’s Welcome The Happy Pebble Jr.

by The Happy Rock on January 21, 2008

adoptive-families-picture.jpgThe Happy Rock Garden welcomed its fourth member on Friday night, a second adopted son Julian. I will dub him The Happy Pebble Jr. to go along with our first Happy Pebble.

He was born on Wednesday the 16th and we brought him home on Friday night. It all happened quite fast and unexpectedly which just adds to the joy and excitement! Family and children are more amazing than I could have ever dreamed. Cheers!

On a separate and unrelated side note, I will be taking requests for guest posters. I will be sleeping way too much that I won’t have the time to produce the same level of quality content, especially with my MBA finishing in just over 8 weeks. Email me with a general topic and an estimated time of arrival, and I will choose a handful of authors to submit articles. Thanks.

*Note : That is not a picture of our children.

Although you may need to rename yourself *the sleep-deprived rock*.

Happy Rock,
Congratulations on your new baby! I would just suggest that perhaps your new son needs his own name. I dub him “Happy Stone” not to be confused with Stone Phillips (news commentator). It’s way too confusing if all your children are called Happy Pebble!

CONGRATULATIONS! Good luck with sleep!

Whoohoo! More pebbles or stones or whatever! Can’t wait to meet him! I hear he’s crazy cute.

Congratulations. Sleep when the baby sleeps!

Congratulations for the new family member! Having a child is me and my husband’s dream. It has been a year since our marriage and we are still waiting. Someday we might follow your decision to addopt a baby.

Once again, congratulations!

Congratulations on the new member of your family. I think it is wonderful how a small child changes the dynamics of a family.

Good luck in the sleep department. Hopefully, Happy Pebble Jr. is NOT nocturnal!

Congratulations! I hope you, The Rockette, and both Pebbles are doing well and getting a good amount of sleep!

Congrats! That’s awesome. I love the “Happy Pebble Jr.” nickname!

Wow! Congratulations… what a wonderful way to bless and be blessed. Rock on! NCN

Congrats, what an awesome effort! I am in awe in the gift and commitment that you and your family have given to the wonderful child!

Thanks for all the well wishes and the support. Things are going well.

The one caveat being that with a biological child you get 9 months to prepare, we had about 90 minutes! So it will take a while for things to settle down again. He is a very good baby, so that is making the transition easier. He is eating well, and sleeping well for the most part. A true blessing! Big brother is also adjusting to his new role better than we projected.

Thanks again.
