Wait ages for one and then two come along together

As mentioned in previous topics, 2018 was going to be an interesting year for us. Eldest blessing gave us our first grandchild four weeks ago, a beautiful baby girl. Mother, daughter and husband all doing fine. Last weekend Sarah and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary although we had lived together for a few years before the official event. Late this afternoon youngest blessing delivered us a grandson. Mother, son and wife all doing well.

The world might be going going to pot (now there's an idea!) but my own little universe is wonderful.

WooHoo, now you have two.
So nice that they will be the same age and can hopefully have lots of time together.

Here's the latest grandchild at 2 hours old.



And here's the excited reaction from his older cousin.

...and I thought you had been waiting for a bus.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Maybe he feels like he's been hit by a bus-a 24K one! Congratulations again, Paul!

What they all said!

Nice when good things come together. Hope the two newest ones are close by so you can spoil them frequently.

Experience in this household is that first time mothers don't give up their newborns, even for grandmas and grandpas. Getting to hold the little one was a carefully time event.

Having been in and out of the hospital due to my serious health issues, I haven't felt like posting for some time, too depressed, but reading your great news lifted my spirits.

Congratulations, Paul!
