    Our forth grandson came into this world at 7:15 tonight. I got call from Rose in the delivery room at 7:16 and heard the little one minute old boy using his lungs and making a fuss. I haven't got the statistics yet but Rose, who was in the delivery room with Mommy & Daddy, said he looks to be a little over seven pounds and has reddish brown hair. Everything went perfect with the delivery. That's FOUR Grand Boys for us thus far! Just five more and we have a full little league team. :lol I get to go down and see him tomorrow. Can't wait!!!!!!!!

    He is named after an angel - GABRIEL

    He is 8lb 1.5 oz
    He is 20.75 in.

    He is absolutely perfect - adorable - the 'reddish-brown' hair... is more like 'reddish-blond' at this point. These things change, you know. But Mom, Dad, and Baby are doing excellent.

    And I got to witness the whole delivery. WOW! I've had three of my own, but I have never experienced this! To see his head, watch his shoulders 'break' the point.... then see my sweet daughter reach her hands to grab and hold her son..... he didn't leave her breast for about 1 1/2 hours.... I literally stood in a corner and allowed the scenario to unfold - letting them have their moment. It was incredible!

    O Everlasting God, mercifully grant that as your Holy Angels serve and worship you in Heaven, so may they also watch over and protect little Gabriel and his family here on earth!

    O Eternal God, you have promised to be a Father to a thousand generations of those who love you,. Please bless and watch over little Gabriel and his family and as Gabriel grows in age, may he grow in grace and remain in your blessing and protection!

    Through Jesus Christ, AMEN!

    I know it's a bit late but I was away when it happened and just noticed this post. Congratulations! One week on, how's the little guy (and his mamma of course) doing?
