It's a Boy!

I'd like to introduce our newest grandson Blake. His parents Cory and Shannon are thrilled (understatement). Blake looks a little relieved himself. Wouldn't you love to know what he's thinking?

"So, you guys are my parents? Kewl. Hi Dad."

or maybe:

"How come I couldn't look like my mum? She's really pretty."

or:

"I should probably mention now that I'm cheering for the Canucks."

or...?

  4. Blake's precious! Just want to hold him! (Maybe he's hoping no one pinches his cheeks!) Congrats!

    You've got a beautiful family!

  5. @Thank you, Karen. Yup, it's wonderful.

    @Hi Kittie. I know what you mean. I can't wait to kiss those cheeks. Sadly, they're on the other side of the country in New Brunswick. Probably 3000 miles or more. Glad you're doing all right after such terrible storms.

  8. Hi Joylene,
    That's wonderful news! And not only will Blake possibly be cheering for the Canucks, who knows, he might end up playing for them, eh :)
    Congrats to Cory and Shannon. And wow Joylene, I cannot believe you are old enough to be a Grandma, eh :)

  17. Congratulations Granny! I'm sure it's a wonderful feeling to hold a newborn in your arms, knowing you are going to help make him into the person he'll become.

    Best wishes,
    Cher

  19. @Cher, great words. Sadly, we don't get to hold him until next month. Blake lives in NB with his parents and we live in central BC. Opposite coasts.

    @Lauren, hi. And thanks. Our son is stationed in Gagetown near Fredericton New Brunswick. Thank God for Skype!
