I'm only 5'5", but their dad was 6'6", so the height comes from him, although I have some over 6 footers on my side too.  Guess it's a combined height!

Yes, I'm anxious to see that little one too, but since he's so small, I'm not taking any chances with his health!

Ok, the "rancher" coming out...   You found a low birth weigh bull that had good growth.   :))

For those who might be offended easily, please forgive.  But to me, this is just too precious!  Totally natural, unassisted, and thought this was Ryan's outlook on the world that he just entered -- after all the drama of his birth!

Please ignore he's jaundiced and looks a bit yellow in the photo, but he's spending more time in the sun, and the jaundice is improving.  Daddy Ben was feeding him breast milk, but from the bottle, so he can enjoy feeding him, too.

So, here is the new little one, with his first expression of the world he has just become a part of......

Yes, I am very pleased and over-the-moon with him, as I feel I'm looking at my last grandchild.  But what a winner I think he will be.

Thanks for the "giggle" -- I giggle each time I see the picture, and you are soooooo right about upcoming birthdays!

If he's a really "busy" boy growing up, and your son exasperated, just show him this picture, and tell him he was born with it, and you knew from the start.   ;D

You guys are a hoot - "... rancher in ya..."!!!!  Pictures at 18 & 21 are so fun and embarrassing, too, sometimes. 

I'm so glad that he made it into the world OK, Diane.  You get to feeling better, too.

Thanks everyone.  We're really so pleased that this little one arrived safely, and thank you all again for your prayers.

And I think this picture will "live" a long time to explain things along the way.  Personally, I hope I get to "use" it a bit to bring the point "home!"

My daughter started me on some antibiotics, so hoping I get to feeling a lot better soon.  I have to take the "final" class test on Saturday afternoon -- and hoping my brain starts connecting so I can pass the test.  Usually, I don't fear testing, as I "usually" don't have any problems, but I've been so sick, I can hardly think or even do simple math, and this test is loaded with lots of math with many formulas.  The math part I can do, but right now, my brain can't seem to zero in on which formula goes with which problem.  Hope it all comes together before Saturday afternoon!   ;pray ;pray

Little Ryan is just so sweet Diane - we do the 18th and 21st birthday embarrassments too!
Really hoping you feel better very quickly - will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers for the test on Saturday. xx

Again, I thank you friends, for your prayers.  I passed the test with a 92!  Not my greatest grade, but it FEELS like my greatest grade as it's such a relief to have it over!  Now on to the State exam, but I'm not scheduling that until I have time to rest and prepare.

Thank you all again for your prayers!

Yeah!  It's done, you passed and sounds like a pretty good grade for test taken with foggy, medicated cold head.
