    Talking ...grandparents that think he is the center of the universe.

Keep those pictures coming and keep us up on Ryan's progress as he discovers what it's like to be a member of the human race with parents and grandparents that think he is the center of the universe.
    Grandma already does!

    I'm getting used to the idea, but I still say I'm too young!
    ;-)

    Congratulations on your third!

    Talking Dude! That's awesome!!

    Your son certainly looks calm in the first shot. Not to be nosey but was the c-section planned? I know I didn't look that calm when I was waiting!

    I'm assuming, since you didn't say, that everyone is doing good and there were no problems. Little Ryan is certainly cute!

    Look at Dawn beam! And it's obvious that you're pretty proud of the newest addition too. Only 173 shots? Too busy holding him or queing up for grandpa holding time to take photos? ;)

    I, for one, am looking forward to seeing more photos.

    Pass on my congratulations to your son and daughter-in-law. And to you and Dawn!
    Yes it is. And you are a little TOO enthused my friend! ;-)

    Yes, we are close in age. The difference is, you get woke up and have to change diapers. I don't. Hehehe. (Just kidding with you buddy!)

    Yes, he was very relaxed. That's the "ignorance is bliss" look. And yes, it was a planned C-section.

    My son is learning the hard way, that this is no longer playing house. When we ask him how he's doing, his answer is "Tired". To which I answer, "That's parenthood!"

    :-D

    Ryan had to go under the lights for high billyreuben (sp?), but he's doing fine now. Mom and dad are also doing well, except for lack of sleep.

    Dawn has been excited over the idea of being a grandparent for years. I'm not sure what's wrong with her! She's even more excited now that Ryan is here. That I understand.

    "Only 173 shots?"

    Yes. I didn't see the point of going completely overboard.

    ;-)

    I've already passed on your congratulations, and I forwarded your email to Dawn. She was very appreciative.

    More photo's will follow. I'm pushing the 300 mark now. It's a lot quicker and easier to take the photo's than it is to process them.

    We'll be looking forward to seeing them.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Talking I'm sure you'll enjoy watching your grandson torment...

    Now Paul.

    Really!

    How do you know us that well?!!!

    :-D

    We are taking entirely too much delight in hearing Rob's complaints about how tired he is, and how the baby eats, sleeps, and cries. Hehehe.

    And we tell him, "Welcome to parenthood!"

    Thanks for the comments buddy!

    Talking Naw, she's too young to be a grandmother

    You are right! She was 15 when Rob was born. Poor girl wouldn't meet the true love of her life for another 8 years. But, when she married me, she loved my children as if they were her own. And she's as excited about being a grandmother as anyone could be.

    Thank you for the comments my friend!
