I was so happy to be asked if I wanted to hold our new grandchild. He is absolutely beautiful and never closed his eyes for one minuteHe was looking all over the place, for the entire time we were visiting! Caitlin is so proud, she's a beautiful little mother! And Zachary, his face is radiating he's so happy Zachary's sister Taylor was leaving with 3 yr old Olivia, as we were entering the hospital. Hugs and tons of love were shared:) Olivia showed us her purple glasses:) And who did we see in the hallway? Our daughter Mari Lyn, her husband Christian and Aubrey, their ten year old daughter! It was like a family reunion in the hospital waiting room:) Hugs, hugs and more hugs! The baby is so precious, they named him Theodore W. after Caitlin's grandpa and baby will be called "Theo." Here's a photo that Zachary took with Jay's phone.

They always say, "Sorry, but I can't find the time, we always run short!" Then, baby is born and everyone takes time out of their busy day!

Oh, I am so happy for you. Sounds like he is a curious little fellow. Great name. Sounds like a very nice visit. I remember when my grandson was born. I set in the hospital room and held him for hours. He was/is so precious.

The waiting room turned out to be a meeting place for the family. And a great memory was created. I do see the baby's eyes wide open in that photo!!! You three look great too.

My grand-nephew is getting married, and I need to tell him I’m way too young to be a great-great-aunt (and my brother is too young to be a great-great-grandfather.) What a beautiful child. I know you’re elated!!!

I told my daughter the exact same thing, so she rebelled! She and her ex-husband had four, then she remarried and had another child

We all strive to mold our future and part of that job is, setting a good example for our grandchildren to follow! Joy&love are a personal choice, that comes down from God above:)
