We are proud to announce the birth of our grandson today. He was born at 1:40 p.m. At birth, he weighed 7 lb. 13.2 oz. and was 20.5 inches long. I don’t know when I have seen a newborn with such large hands.
This is the beautiful mother, Lynette, with her son.
Aside from the fact that she looks totally love with her son, she appears to be quite pleased with herself. Jim says she looks very smug indeed, and pointed out that this is the totally natural look a woman has for all men: Look what I can do.
Ah, the magic of being able to reproduce the species. No wonder the patriarchy is so strident. They are still trying to overcome this mystery and power. Good luck with that, boys.
And here is the proud father, the son that Jim and I are so very very proud of.
Okay. I have to post one more.
Jim and I have shared a bottle of champagne, the cork is in my collection with the date inscribed on it. Also we shared an excellent cigar.
Now I have to finish packing. Tomorrow I leave for my drive to Georgia, where I will get to hold this precious human being in person rather than vicariously.
It just doesn’t get any better than this.
