He's Here!


Our sweet grandson was born today! Meet my grandson!


December 12, 2008
10:39 AM Mountain Time
7 pounds 15 ounces
19 3/4 inches long



Mother, Dad and baby are all doing fine!


The four Grandparents are estatic, and very relieved our long wait is over with a healthy happy outcome. The maternal grandparents will be visiting in Denver this week, and we will be visiting for Christmas.


The two first time Aunts are joyful for a little nephew to love and proud that their siblings became parents today.


Baby is very healthy, alert and calm. He will be much loved and is the very best Christmas gift for us all!


Thank you so much for all your prayers and well wishes!

A Christmas present - just like so long ago! Congratulations - your "motherhood" just expanded again - one more person to add to your worry list! I'm amazed how those old-fashioned names are returning. I had a great-uncle Leo - always liked him! Enjoy the babyhood - it doesn't last very long! Enjoy your "grandmother-hood"! PAM
