It’s a big month for grandsons in my family. My daughter, Heather delivered a healthy 8 lbs 6 oz boy (Luke) today and my daughter, Amanda, will be having a baby boy (by c-section) a week from today. It has all of the earmarks of a unique Christmas Season. Healthy babies are the best possible Christmas present for a grandpa.
I know that most of you are saying that I’m way too young to be a grandfather – and of course, I couldn’t agree more. But the plain truth is that when you have four healthy daughters and they get married to healthy men, your posterity stands a chance of growing.
It’s Heather’s second son and will be Amanda’s third son.
They boys are arriving at homes who love them and want them, to parents and grandparents who will definitely protect and likely spoil them.
So as days go, this was a very long — but a very nice day. And Grandpa can’t wait for them to be old enough to go fishing, hunting and off-roading.
Welcome to the world Luke! And congratulations you lithe, young Grandpa 🙂
Congrats to them, and enjoy the new additions (and spoil them rotten)… 🙂
The Force is with him…
The spoiling part is a forgone conclusion!
Beautiful healthy baby. Congrats to mom, dad, and grandpa.
Congrats to your family! I love being a Grandpa . . . obviously a shared pleasure! Enjoy!
Let's see, you had four girls, and now your girls are having all boys. What's up with that?
Congrats beau coup.
A mighty fine looking grandboy ya have there, Pops. Congrats!
Welcome Luke, Blessed Be! You have an Awesome Gramps!
Nature is balancing itself.
Thank you Adrienne.
Now I need to teach him tactical shooting.
Thank you John — He'll make a fine sailor in due time.
Thanks Brig – He's a keeper, and big as a respectable salmon.
True wealth is measured in good children and grandchildren. You are a wealthy and blessed man.
It's the only thing of value that you leave behind. And if you've done a good job, they will bless the lives of others and pay it forward.
Congratulations to all, best wishes for speedy returns home and God Bless with a long and fruitful life.
Thank you juvat. All are doing well and we hope that mother and baby will home tomorrow.
Congrats! Same as you, I have four daughters – four grandkids so far. Just wait a few years. They're a lot more fun when they get older.
PS – my oldest grandson (14) shot his first turkey and his first buck this year. His dad is doing a good job bringing him up.
Yes, but you always worry a bit about them, don't you? I'm glad that your daughter is home from the SandBox and that trust that her new career has legs. Let me know if I can help.
HOORAY!! How precious! Love his fuzzy hair!!
I just got back from holding him at the hospital again. He's a bundle of joy.
awww! brings a tear to my eye!! love it.
