a new Grandpa!!

Postby Mike56 » Fri Jul 17, 2009 10:12 am

Just wanted to share...our youngest daughter & son-in-law just made us the proud grand parents (first time) of a baby boy! He's a real cute little bugger too! We were waiting in the hall about 30 feet from the open door of the delivery room, the son in law was counting to 10, pausing, counting again..and all of a sudden a baby started crying bloody blue murder! How cool, we heard him being born.
The son in law has 2 weeks off now, and they're going to come stay with us for a few days next week. Can't wait!
A few months ago when we thought this thing in my head was a tumor I remember hoping I'd live long enough to see my grandchild (I know...a little melodramatic, but that's the frame of mind I was in). Now that he's here, man, I feel good!

Cheers :D

Your brother's young, he can have more.......I hear ya! My nephew's son is 2. They're a lot of fun at that age, and you get to send them home when you get tired of them.

My grandson's middle name is Michael, after me.

Congratulations. Another new Canadian, albeit on the west coast. Me, not a grandpa yet, and I am in no hurry. My oldest is 23 and in no rush to get married. Suits me fine. lol

Congrats, again!

Thanks Terry

We saw the little guy yesterday (had to go for an MRI in the city they live in). He's doing great! He was born with a full head of dark hair, and it keeps growing. It's about 2 1/2" long on top, and sticks straight up. He looks like a mad scientist, or one of those little dolls the kids used to play with (can't remember what they were called).
