    Thanks, everyone! Seven of us spent 22 hours in the waiting room while she labored.

    A grandchild certainly makes me think about my future and the choices I make. Highly recommended!

    Congratulations grand children are great.
    I have two grandsons one 5 months and one 4 months
    Both daughters were pregnant at the same time. Little boys will grow up together and should be best friends forever.
    Enjoy your grand child.

    My oldest daughter is 6 days past due with her first child, my first grandchild. The wait is killing me.

    I have two daughters. I never wished for a boy, or a girl of my own. Only that they would be healthy. However having a grandson......oh yeah.

    They say you love your kids, but fall in love with your grandkids. I think I'm getting the feeling.

    I agree, it is different somehow. My grandson and I have a special bond and I can't imagine life without him.

    I have 13 of them Alan. And the first great grand daughter just a few weeks ago!
    My kids didn't mess around. ;)

    They are so much fun there should be a way to have the grandkids first!!!

    Congtratulations Gramps. Get ready for some of the best times of your life. As Steve said, and I've often seen quoted on bumper stickers, "If I'd have known having grand kids was this much fun, I'd have had them first!" To which my kids always groan "Yeah, right dad...." Seriously, they will wrap you around their finger in a heart beat. Enjoy!
