    My FIRST Grandchild

    My daughter gave birth to her first child, and our first grandchild on June 17th, at 2:55 p.m. A little girl, Ava Makenzi Johnson, 6 lb 13 oz, 19 3/4 inches long. What an absolute rush for my wife and myself. Both Mom, and Ava are doing well, hubby is questionable!

    This has truly been a roller coaster month, with the loss of my Dad on the 9th, and now the birth of my first grandchild on the 17th. I truly believe the Lord works in mysterious ways!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    As a Grand-dad of 5, let me be the first to say; Congrats!
    It's a great gig.

    Congrats, there granddad.

    You know, of course, how much fun raising a grand daughter is. Best part is when they start to cry, you can give her back to mom with the comment, "this is what I suffered through with you".

    Congrats!!! The words Grandpa, grandad, grandchild all have a way of making a person feel old but remember you're only as old or young as you really feel. I'm sure you'll do your best to spoil her. Again Congrats!!!

    Congrats on the first grand child...

    Also great to hear that your daughter and Ava are doing good.

    Now let the spoiling begin. By the second one you should have to down pack.

    Congrats, being a granddad sure seems like a lot of fun, for both the grandkids and grandparents. I watch the joy on the faces of my daughters and my dad when they play together. My wife says Grandparents and grandkids get along because they have a common enemy....the parents!

    Congratulations, First Sarge!

    My first grandchild just arrived as well (Apr 20th). What a great event....This grandparent 'thing' is really cool!
