    A new baby is always an exciting event. Hope he's healthy and happy.

    I 'spect his friends will dub him "Raygun". Smiling out loud.

    I can just hear the excitement and joy in your words...good for you!!! I think those grands are even more exciting than our own kids were! My youngest is expecting in mid September...she's devistated at the weight she's gained...told her it'll be worth it, and the weight will come off. This will be our 9th. Six are boys!

    Sorry if I forgot, are you going to get to be there for the birth? I didn't with my g/kids...could have, but thought that was their special time...but boy did I stick to that phone like glue! What beautiful, heart-warming words to hear when they finally arrive.

    Bless your daughter and hope she has a safe and easy delivery. Good luck to you, and happy grandparenting!!
    Love, Jole

    The thrill of having a new baby in the family! I remember just waiting by the phone too. Our grands are all grown. The youngest will be a jr. next yr. in college and will be India, of all places! I don't know - this generation travels the world over.

    jole: Wehad 9 grands and 6 were boys. But we have gained 3 GD-in-laws. They are just as wonderful and will gain another one in Dec.

    Congrats again.

    Gentle Hugs,

    Good luck on that little grandbaby soon to be born. You all must be very excited. I have had 5 kids and 8 grandkids. They are all precious 19 years to 5.

    I am guessing it is your first. Is that correct? That is definately the most exciting but they are all wonderful.

    Thanks for letting us know.

    I love that name too.

    Sis, congratulations!

    My daughter had our first granchild in April. A son also. They are such loving parents. He has his Gran and Paps wrapped around his little finger!

    My girlfriend had her first granchild, another boy, several months before Sam. She told me that I'd feel a love I've never felt before. How right she was! Sam is my sun and my moon!

    I can tell you are so excited! With very good reason! How exciting to have a BOY to join all of those females! He will be adored by all.

    Enjoy these moments. It seemed as if Elizabeth's pregnancy flew by...until the last two weeks!

    the sexes seem to flip many times to the opposite sex when it is time for the new generation. We had all girls and then one boy. Now we have 1 girl (the first grandchild) and 7 boys. That is too weird. The girls were 2 years apart and then about 5 years from the last girl to the boy. Now, that was a shock - the pregnancy and the birth !

    Hope you get a mixture of sexes and they get to live closeby. Not all of mine do and do not always see them that often.

    Keep us informed please, we are waiting !!!!

    How special Kim that you have little Sam in your life now! I bet you are loving every minute with him,,,I wonder if our Daughters and sil's know what the magnitude of the gift of a grandchild is?,,,,,,,

    To us it's the Ultimit gift,,i think it's more specical because we have an illness and the grandbabies are something to look forward to and to love like no other!,,Thanks for your support!

    Granni~~~ Wow the sexes of the kids really did flip around! my side of the family is known for either all girls or all boys,,,so this is special!,,,Thanks for your suport also!,,I think God has something to do with it if you ask me!,,,,,,,,HUgs!,,,Sis
