We took our first plane trip last weekend! Mom was nervous, but Diesel handled it like a champ. He slept through most of the legs of the flights and ate the rest.

We went to Seattle and had a great time with Chris, Melissa and Ryan. Ryan is so cute, he makes the greatest sounds and sleeps like a champ.

We went downtown to Pikes fish market and we also got to see the Tigers loose :(
Check out some of the pictures of us in the plane at the game and at the sculpture museum.
This is Diesels first try in the bumbo, very cute!
Diesels first plane ride!

Mom, dad and Diesel... I think dad needs longer arms so we can all get in the picture better.

All of us at the game!

This is what happens when Craig forgets podzilla at home!
Hope all is well with everyone, talk to you soon.

Hi Everyone,

Diesel started smiling a little over a week ago - wow what a difference a smile can make. I just love it!

Diesel is now over 2 mths old, he changed everyday. For instance today he followed an object with his eyes, seems like a simple, but it took him 2 mths :-)

We spent the fourth of July with the Kevin, Gretchen, Tim, Tammy and Griffin - We don't have any pictures of it, but I do have some cool pictures of Craig and Diesel on the Harley.

We also had a great weekend with Fran, Madison and Olivia. Fran had a soccer tournament in Plymouth so they all stayed with us. Fran was awesome in her tournament, I don't think her team won, but it isn't always about winning.
Well that's all for now. Diesel takes his first plane trip on Thursday to go to Seattle to see the Strouds, wish us luck that we don't get any delays.
Love Sue, Diesel and Craig!

Memorial Day Weekend!

We had a great time over Memorial day weekend.

Kevin and Gretchen came in from Prescott and Sean, Tracy and Aidan came over from Chicago all just to meet Diesel for the first time. All of the kids got together to take pictures for Mothers and Fathers day, it was really nice. And the cousins were together for the first time, I'm sure when then get a couple years older we are in for some trouble!

We barb-b-qued a couple times even though the weather wasn't that great on Saturday or Sunday. Monday made up for it and it was a perfect day in Michigan, Diesel even wore his Tigers gear to show how big a fan he is.

Diesel also went to a restaurant for the first time with Grandpa and Mimi. We all walked up to Royal Oak and enjoyed a nice lunch at Prontos, Diesel was great and it was nice to know that I can go out with him :)

The next time we all get together will be in August for a week at a cottage on the West side of the state, I'm sure there will be a ton of pictures!


Hi Everyone,

Diesel and I have had a lot of visitors, I just thought I would put the pictures up so everyone can see.

At the hospital Diesels Aunt Fran and cousins Olivia and Madison came to see him when he was only 1 day old!

Grandma Carol also spent 2 days with us and we went to the zoo, I don't have any pictures of this, but I know Grandma Carol does. We went to the zoo with Anne, Ashley, Trey, Jill, Nathan and Molly - It was a rainy day so I didn't really see anything!

Grandpa Tony and Grandma Mary also came stopped by to see me on their way to Pennsylvania!

11 Days old.

It's hard to believe that Diesel wasn't even supposed to be here until tomorrow. I'm so happy that he has been in our lives for 11 days already. Things have been going great. He is sleeping really well and eating even better. I'm sure that on Monday at his 2 week appointment he'll be a lot bigger.

(see how tiny i am, i must have a king size crib)

(I'm in the jungle, see there's even a lion looking at me)

Here are some more pictures. He had his first bath in the tub yesterday, before that he still had his umbilical cord so we gave him 2 sponge baths.

(here i am after my bath, see my hair looks like dads!)

Also on Sunday and Monday Gina came over to take his first pictures, I can't wait to see them I know they'll be awesome!

Dad didn't know mom took this picture, I think he thinks I'm going to steal his sheets.

He's HERE!

Diesel Matthew Keighron
Born 05/05/2007
6lbs, 13oz.
20.5 inches

Well, I was right my water did break Saturday morning! Everything went really well, my contractions didn't start until about 11:00am, we stayed home until they were about 2-3 minutes apart. We headed to the hospital at around 2pm. We ended up having Diesel Matthew Keighron at 7:09pm. Everything was great, I feel that I was able to do whatever I wanted and this was so awesome. Craig was unbelievable, I was a little worried that he would be a smarta$$, but I tell you what he was awesome and I couldn't have done it without him.

We came home on Monday and everything has been outstanding. We feel so blessed to have Diesel in our lives. I stare at him all day.

He definitely looks like Craig - mostly his long toes and skinny calvles :)

He doesn't have my thumbs yet, but he may grow into them!

Thanks to everyone for the food, flowers, good wishes and blessings. Craig and I had to cancel the bbq we were going to have on Sunday, soon we'll reschedule so everyone can meet him.
