It is with great pleasure that I announce the birth of another Great Grandson to my family. Named Cameron Alton Chick Jr.

Great-Grandson Cameron Alton Chick Jr.

Cameron is the 1st son of Cameron Alton Chick Sr. and Susan Chick, 1st son of Malinda Marie Root (my daughter) and Stacy Chick.

He was born on March 1st in Albuquerque, NM at 7:02 p.m. with dad and grandma in attendance. Both mom and baby are doing well.

Daddy and I in NICU
Grandma and I in NICU

So tiny and weighing in at 3lbs. 15.5 oz. and is 17 inches in length.

Wonderful things happened surrounding his birth as Grandma was there to take charge doing what she does best, multitask. She kept dad from passing out, fed ice chips to mom, pressed cool washcloths, and encouraged mom to bear down when the time came. Grandma provided the love bond we all needed. Yeah, grandma!

Susan and Cameron go home tomorrow and baby Cameron will go home in 1 to 2 weeks.

The day of his birth there were interesting things going on in the world.

It’s a Leap Year, Super Tuesday in Politics, A dog in braces, Scott Kelly returned to Earth after a year in space.
