Well since I’ve only published three or four times in the last year, it’s time for another update!!!
We became grandparents again on New Year’s Eve. Our precious grandson was born at 9:57 p.m. and weighed in at 8 lbs. 5 ozs. and was 21 inches long. He had his first doctor’s visit today and although I have not talked to our daughter, I’m sure he’s growing like a weed!!! She said he eats well and lots!! 🙂
His initials are NIP and so, for the time being, we call him Nipper! I’m sure that won’t last but it works for now. He’s his proud grandpa holding the sweetheart. And Kelsey thinks he’s the best thing to come along since the Backyardagains!! She’s two now, by the way!!
He was the last baby born in the old year at our local hospital. As with many hospitals, there is a big to-do about the first baby born of the New Year. This year, H & R Block honored the last one born in the old year so Mom and Dad got a great gift basket!!!
