    Hey Rick, that's wonderful. I needed some good news today. I'm glad that your daughter and Sawyer Jane are doing well. She's a beautiful girl.

    Agreed, your daughter doesn't have that `don't mind me, just got hit by a truck' look that most of us wear after childbirth. They both look very relaxed and comfortable. Your granddaughter looks like you--just needs a ponytail. I have a hunch your Marsha is looking in on this situation, and approves. It's an amazing thing, the process of the whole world moving over just a little bit to make room for someone new . . . pebble in the pond . . . the ripples from this event change the universe . . .

    We called my father grandpa 'till my daughter renamed him "PAPA!" and that was it (I think it was Bell from Beauty & The Beast).
    I asked him why they go nutz for the grandkids and my mom and he chimed in at exactly the same moment:

    "Grandkids go home!"

    Congrats Rick.

    OK, how's this one? Strapped in for the trip home from the hospital. She can just barely contain her excitement about her first car ride. :lol:

    Lovely.

    Made me think of my daughter's inaugural ride: child came earlier than expected, and so we had to stop on the way home from the hospital and buy a car seat. We bought the biggest, baddest, most protective car seat available at the only store that was open at that point (I remember three highly inebriated Native ladies stopped us on the sidewalk to ooh and ahh). We strapped her in as best we knew, and made one more stop on the way home. I looked back at the car seat and she was gone. I knew she had to be somewhere, and investigated further. She was curled up like a cutworm in the bottom of this enormous car seat, with an astonished look on her face, clearly wondering how it was the nurses had released her into the hands of such bumbling amateurs, and hoping for the best . . . :gulp:
