Grandfathered In, Again


Well, my granddaughter finally arrived on Friday, May 1st @ 4:26am. She came into the world weighing 6lbs + 15ozs and she was 19 + 1/2 inches long. My daughter called us exactly 4 minutes after she was born @ 4:30am to give us the news. Needless to say, there was no use trying to go back to sleep after getting that phone call so, my wife and I just laid in bed, talked, and waited for the sun to rise.

We were not at the hospital for this birth and I was more than happy to let my son-in-law hold my daughter's hand through the delivery this time. But, you know how it is... the job of being a parent is never really over so, my wife and I anticipated that we would have to put our "getting reacquainted" time on hold for a little while once the baby was born. This time, our part in the process is keeping our grandson until his mommy and little sister come home on Sunday.

But, it's all good. Truth be told, we have missed "The Booga Wooga" during the few weeks that he's been gone and it's nice having him back in the house for a few days. Yesterday, we took him to the hospital with us so he could meet his little sister. I think that he's going to be just the (little) man for the job of "big brother". Other than being tired, my daughter is fine and, most of all, she got her wish... to celebrate Mother's Day on next Sunday with her son and daughter.

"Well, at least, I don't look like I'm twice a grandfather."


"Pop-Pop, my big brother already warned me about that grin!"


"Pop-Pop, I remember when you held me like that too!"

Congratulations to you, the wife, your daughter and Booga Wooga!

If anybody should be a grandfather, it should be you. You are a man of honor and dignity. May God bless you to be able to see your granddaughter become a mother one day (and even further than that if possible)
