  1. Ah…I love the little whale too@

    1. Whales and turtles . . . absolutely precious!

  2. A few months ago I was in your place. What a joy a grandchild brings! The best part is watching your son be a father. The worst part is being far away. Thank goodness for technology.

    1. It is so fun to watch our children be successful and take on those family roles! (8 hrs by road – could be worse)

  3. Congratulations to your family! I was just thinking this morning about my sons when they were babies. It’s such a joy.

    1. Thanks, Kendra!
      Exciting days and years ahead of us!

  4. Never having had children, this is something my wife and I will never experience. However, our nepwhe and his wife are expecting their first child (sex unknown) any day now.

    1. Congratulations on a new baby soon in your family. I’ve been a “great aunt” nine times now courtesy of my siblings! This bundle of joy will be the tenth great grandchild for my mom!

      Babies are so amazing!

  5. Hooray – such joy! Looking forward to that first picture, Fran!

    1. Me too, Tara! I have several ultra sound pictures but those first pictures of a newborn are always just awesome!

  6. This makes me smile: ” A well-loved son and grandson.” I’m so excited for you and your family.

    1. Thanks, Julieanne! My heart is so full already! ❤
