Congratulations, granddad.
He's a handsome one.
Nice head of hair already!
Best wishes to mom, dad, and baby.

Woo Hoo! Congrats! Your chest must be pumped out with enormous pride.

You know, you'll have to show him these posts when he's a bit older. "You were always a special kid, Donovan - people from all over the world knew about your birth and saw your picture, and remarked on what a handsome young man you were..."

:D :D :D

Thanks for all the responses and compliments!

Vic, I told my wife about what you said about showing Donovan the posts and we are going to print this out. I would imagine it will end up in a scrapbook at some point. There is a real good chance that he will be coming home this week. We have not been able to see him in person yet because they won't allow visitors in the NICU. My son said this happens every year during flu season.

Thanks again,
