Just joined the gramps core

My son just became a father and DW and I joined the grand parent rolls. Naturally, he is the cutest baby of all time. They live about half a mile away so we will see a lot of the new baby. Looking forward to spoiling him

I am so glad you know the unwritten Community Rule that threads about new babies must be accompanied by at least one photo. But you must tell us his name, too!!!

He is adorably, just adorable. Congratulations to his parents and his grandparents!

Congratulations. I agree, he is the cutest baby of all times. I'll let you in on a secret: all grandparents feel the same way. Enjoy the special times. They are priceless.

Congratulations he is so cute . Being a grandparent is great . You get to play with lots of fun toys again . I've been a grandmother for two years and my heart melts every time he calls me gamma.

Congratulations to you and MsDonHeff. What a good looking little guy.

Being with my g-kids is as good as it gets, especially while they still think Gramma and Grampa are special. Enjoy every second.

What Rich said. Grandkids are hard to beat - and that isn't solely due to the fact they can outrun you!

Speak for yourself! I haven't changed a bit.

But Congrats, and Jealousy to the new grandparents. My wife is hoping that when we ever get any they will just be dropped at Grandma and Grandpa's house for a month in the summer.
