We split into 3 groups to go meet Derrick so the new family wouldn't be quite so overwhelmed by having 13 visitors all at once, and to give them a chance to rest between visits too. It also allows the baby-holdings to last a little bit longer for each person (which is definitely a perk!), and helps keep younger ones from getting bored and tired while they're just waiting around for everybody else to get their turns.
This post contains pictures from Group 1's visit.

I thought I'd open and close this post with a somewhat artistic photo (vs. actual baby picture).
I thought this one was a good one for the head of the post.
Nana and Derrick
Aunt Heidi and Derrick
Uncle Dave and Derrick
Making a little pouty face :-)
His hair is a light brown color.
Baby Derrick, Uncle Zach, Uncle Dave, and proud new daddy, Brian
Tired, but happy, mommy and baby.
(Julie and Derrick)
And at the foot of this post, I thought this picture would serve nicely.
