    First Grandchild

    On 02/10/2009 at 6:22 pm, Seth William Gramm was born, weighing in at 8 lbs 2 ozs and 21 1/2 inches. He is our first Grandchild and the next generation of Gramm's
    The Doctor called him a GOD baby, because his umbilical cord was actually tied in a complete knot, which is pretty rare and outcomes are not normally good, but he had no problems and is very healthy.

    Get ready to have more fun than you've ever had in your life.

    As a recent Grandpa to the power of 5, I say a Hearty Congrats to you and your family.
    It is an awesome experience.
    Especially important for that first 'line of succession'.
    Glad everything went well.

    Congratulations, Grandpa Rick!

    Being a Grandpa is a great feeling, isn't it?

    Thank God, and congratulations. Our first child had a knot and didn't make it, we lost her at 35 weeks and only found out after delivery. It's incredibly rare - I'm so glad he made it!

    Outstanding!
