Baby Malik

I have 6 friends/family/coworkers who are pregnant (including myself). In the lineup of due dates I am 5th. And this Sunday #1 was born!

Welcome Malik James Bates!! Weighing in at 8 lbs and 13 oz, 21 1/2 inches tall! He was 4 days past his due date, and thank goodness not any later. He's a big boy!
We got to go visit him and his parents Mischa and Donavan last night at the hospital, and he sure is a cutie! (And thats saying something for a newborn)
I think he looks alot like his mama.
I was holding him and just kept looking at him and thinking "Something this big is gonna come out of me soon??!"

I like to make Greg hold babies, he looks so cute with them :-)
One down... three to go... then me!

Here's a little project I made yesterday for Tate's bedroomI am not a very crafty person, but I think it turned out really cute!


  1. The baby is really cute.
    I think you must be crafty because the TATUM project turned out soooo cute.
    Can't wait to see #5.:)

  2. I LOVE the letters, SOOO CUTE!

  3. Super cute! Looks crafty to me!

  4. It turned out way cute! Good work D! Also Greg looks great with a baby so I think you are set! :)
