The Wonder of Life

This will be a rather short post.
I am writing to you to tell you
something wonderful.
Today I fell in love again.
It happened at exactly 11:55 AM.
It is a moment that will remain
a sweet memory for the rest of my life.

You see, today my first grandchild was born.
Tyler Andrew.
He came three weeks early.
5 pounds  14 ounces 
of pinkness
and sweetness
and innocence
and everything good about this world.

My life is forever changed.

Better.

To my daughter Jenn, I say "thanks"
for working so hard.  You will be an awesome Mama.

PS....He has my chin (mine and Kirk Douglas')

Grandchildren are special, but a grandparent never forgets the experience of the first one. :-)

Ahh. . . sweet cheeks to nibble on. I know you'll love every minute you spend with him. What will he call you? or will you let him come up with something when the time comes?
