  1. Congratulations to the parents and you and Yvonne! I think the Crocs are still a little large. You may have to wait a bit longer...

  2. Congratulations Bob. I know those noises all to well I'm afraid. But you get to play with the cute little thing, then give them back.

      Yes, we can give her back, but you can't . . .

      The noises aren't so bad, she only has small lungs right now

      We already have two grandchildren but our outlaws are their babysitters most of the time because they are retired, and we are still working.

      This time it's different because they live with us

  4. Sweet. Congrats to the parents and you both. Crocs start at size two, so the newest member of the family will be running around in it in no time.

      thank you. She arrived a couple of weeks early so we weren't ready nor set up yet. Things are a mess with baby stuff everywhere

    This is what happens when you embark on a trans-continetal excursion....

      Thanks, hard to say yet. Being this young they all sort of look the same. Time will tell

      thank you but others were faster on the draw with their phone cameras. She is so small and helpless. I got to hold her again yesterday, as you noticed

      thank you. We have laws here regarding passengers. They have to have both feet on the passenger pegs so it probably means we have to wait 10 years or so . . .

  13. Did I hear "No Papa, no Papa - noooooot the pink crocks!"
    All kidding aside, 10 tiny toes and 10 tiny fingers - there is nothing so special as a grandchild!

      they seem so small & fragile at this age. You have to handle so carefully

    2. Bob - it just dawned on me ... My Grandaughter #1 has the same birthday as your latest addition: Sept. 2.

    3. Karen:

      what a coincidence. This must mean that we are related

  15. Hi Bob,
    I am just getting caught up on your blog as I have also been away (but you know that because you posted on my blog, thanks for that!)
    Congratulations on the newest member of your family. She will have Grandpa wrapped around her little finger in no time!
