message 1: by David, Mr. Blue Eyes; He's the Best--Ain't no lie!! ;) (new)

David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 10713 comments Mod
I'm so excited to announce that Adele gave birth to a beautiful, energetic, healthy baby boy on November 30th. Both baby and mommy are doing well. Beau Avery Kai Estes is a handful and keeping us plenty busy, so you might see a little less of me over the next couple months, but I look forward to getting into a routine and eventually getting back to my active Goodreads-ninja self :)

From time to time, my mods or I might post a few pics of Baby Beau in this thread!

Congrats :D In the first picture he looked so fragile, but in the second one he looks really cute. Though he being a new born I suppose he is fragile.

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 38 comments Absolutely NOTHING more precious that the gift of a child. Cliché as it is, but still so true, treasure each and every minute because the years fly by and you can never get back lost time with your children. When he's saying, "Daddy? Daddy? DADDY???!!!" always give him that minute or five that he wants. It is the most awesome relationship in the world and the most important. Father/son...how exciting!!!

I don't mean to sound preachy, but with 5 children, 19 grandchildren, and 1 GREAT, I think I've earned the "right." LOL

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!

Storm Arashi (stormarashi) | 1130 comments Now I think another question.... What will baby's first book be? ;)

HA! Lord of the Rings! LOL Just kidding. We've got a lot of little fun ones with fuzzy toys that he can interact with. We also nabbed a really cool throwback fairytale book with a bunch of old stories. Also, just before Beau was born, I was inspired to write a new kids book for him. I hope to find an awesome illustrator for it and one day publish it and read it to him :)

You have ABSOLUTELY earned the right to give me advice based on your experience, and I've soaked it up and will do my best to live it! And CONGRATS on having such an AMAZING family :)
