    First Grandson Coming Soon
    Looks like our son and daughter in law will give birth to Max, our first grandson, in the next few days. They just left the doctors office after having stitches removed from her spastic cervix and the doc says it could be any time. In fact they are walking the mall trying to make sure its soon.

    Interesting the way life goes sometimes.

    We have 2 grown sons and adopted our niece when she was a few months old 4 years ago so now we have a 4-year old daughter who is about to be an aunt and we are about to be grandparents.
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die
    to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there
    isn't and die to find out there is.

    Ah, congratulations in anticipation of the birth.

    We just had our first grandchild on New Years Day. It is, indeed, a marvelous experience. Enjoy.

    For my very first birthday I became an aunt (my sister gave birth to her first son on my 1st birthday). There is a 20 year difference between my sister and me (she's the oldest of the family, and I'm the youngest).

    Very kind, thanks. My wife and I certainly feel that way.

    Thank you all for your warm wishes. We will definitely post photos when Max gets here!

    Special thanks to Kim (why aren't all AM's like you?)

    Is Max short for Maximilion?

    Life is funny sometimes. I have 3 year old twins who are aunt/uncle to a 18 month old.

    I was still changing the diapers of my youngest when my first grand child was born.. something aint right about that...

    I think it's way cool, Marty!

    Consider that you and your parent/child have a lot in common now and you can empathize instead of being one of those grandparents who smugly watch their children struggle with parenthood and snicker over their "getting what they deserve."
    Peace,
