Welcome to the World, Little Guy!

I'm thrilled to share the news that my grandson was born this past Friday afternoon. He was 7 pounds, 15 ounces and measured 20 inches, those important statistics for those of you who like to know those things.

I'm sure he'll be told at some point that he was a Black Friday baby. But all that meant to us was that my daughter got to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with family before going to the hospital.

My daughter and her husband struggled with fertility problems for several years, so to finally have this perfect little boy is even more of a blessing. Little guy's parents didn't agree on a name until he was born, Daddy finally giving in to Mommy's favorite. So, I hope you'll let me indulge in a little grandma bragging and show off some photos of my new grandson, Colin.

Only a few hours old, in his mommy's arms.


Grandma holding him for the first time.


He loves his grandma already, can't you tell?


Getting ready to go home.


Loving his swing.


And yes, Daddy says Colin is a Steelers fan.


Thanks for indulging a new grandma. I promise no more pictures, at least for a little while.

Congrats! He is a handsome little man! And since mommy did all the hard work, she should get final say on the name, lol.

Congrats to everyone! It also struck me how alert he looks for a newborn and yes, he loves his grandma. That's a little smile right there on his face. I remember hearing about the fertility problems. Modern medicine has given us so many blessings and this is a perfect example. Enjoy!
