New Grandson!

I simply could not resist sending you this first picture of my first grandson, Jack Gardner Duncan, II. He was born today at 12:17 PM. He is 7 lbs, 13 oz., and 20 1/4 ins. long. I'm so thrilled. Jack is the son of my youngest son, David. They tell me he was gently born and didn't fuss...bearly cried, and has been very happy and contented. He scored nearly perfect on his ap-test and is perfect physically. David was just like that. He was the calmest of my babies, and was always the best child...just a delightful, happy little boy, and gifted child. Everyone has always loved him and been drawn to him. Very charismatic person.

They live in Las Vegas, NV. (Juls, I'm coming...Nov. 20th, to see him in person over Thanksgiving....so get ready for a LNS trip!!!) The new mother wants time to bond with Jack, and David alone, so I'm allowed to come over the holiday to see him.

I'm just one delighted and proud mom and grammie today!!

Congratulations Deb he is just gorgeous. Contented sons - must be something to do with the J name because my son James was just the best baby and child and gave me no problems at all. Wish the same could be said of my girls!

From one Grandma to another Congratulations again - it's just the best an the most fun kind of person to be.

Lots and lots of love

Congratulations, Deb, on the birth of your wonderful new grandson!! He picked a great day to be born - today is the birthday of my twin boys, Kevin and Kyle. :D

You're being very good to give the new parents some bonding time before you get your chance to hold him. But your day will be here soon, then you can love him up real good, lol!

Congratulations Deb! He is a beauty, and I can tell just by looking at his face that is very content and peaceful!

I am on pins and needles waiting for my second granddaughter to be born. DD1 is back in the hospital tonight on meds to stop labor AGAIN! They keep hoping to squeeze just one more day for the baby's sake, but it is very draining and exhausting for the rest of us!

Congrats again, what a blessing!

Barbara said...

Wow, Deb! I didn't realize this little fella was already due - had it in my head that he was more of a wintertime event. CONGRATULATIONS!! He is utterly perfect and beautiful. :D:D:D
