The Proud Grandfather

I have been battling a cold and have been reluctant to hold Olivia Grace for fear of passing it on to her. However, last night I covered myself in Purell and got to hold her for the first time.

She had just eaten and was taking her post-prandial nap. Her weight of 7.7 lbs doesn't sound too heavy in the abstract but when you hold her she feels quite substantial.

Though you can't see it because of her cap, she has a full head of curly hair. She is and will be a cutie.


  1. Grinning like a fool, ain't cha? :)
    Already planning on what kind of wonderful things you are gonna teach her to drive the parents crazy?

  2. congrats! just got my first two grandchildern in november and december.. pretty profound.. my surprise was how mature the parents suddenly became!

    1. Congrats to you as well. I knew Laura and Jeremy would be good parents but I can see them already stepping up their game.
