They haven't told us if they HAVE chosen a name, but like I said, they weren't supposed to tell us in the first place.
I don't think the magnitude of the responsibility has sunk in yet. Our son is not quite 21 and Jess is 17. I think she still has on her rose colored glasses. Jake has a good job and will be eligible for insurance next month, but they still have no idea how much a baby costs. We ate hotdogs and mac n cheese a LOT so we could buy baby food, diapers etc. So we'll wait and see if they get it.
And I was hoping to hold out till 55 for this, but I guess THAT'S not going to happen. wink.gif

Hey Dog, we'll sure keep the kids in prayer. It sure is different when the babies are your responsibility. My daughter, who is a wonderful girl, sure has a new found respect for her mom!

Have a great day, my friend!

I seem to remember that Phillips pork and beans cost five cans for a dollar along about the time we were buying baby food, diapers, etc. I've not been able to look a can of pork and beans in the face since. wink.gif

Let them have the rose colored glasses while they can. Reality will sink in fast enough. Sometimes it's the memories of the euphoria that keeps you going.

BTW- tell them Elspeth is a wonderful name for a little girl. *lol*

Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.

That is wonderful news. As time goes by you will wonder why you and your wife did not have grandkids first. My grandkids seem to "camp out" at my house. I would not have it any other way. We fish and crab together. We read books together and go and do things. They even go on vacations with us. Grandkids are truely a blessing from God. Enjoy them. cool.gif

Awww, congratulations to you two grandpas! That's sweet news, thanks for sharing. Dog, yes they are very young but I think the young have more stamina for dealing with a newborn than older people might. And they have a naive optimism that is sweet, isn't it?!?

Oh, and Siobhan is a good name for a girl TOO ELSPETH wink.gif but its much harder to spell than it is to say ("shee-von") so I don't really recommend it. laugh.gif laugh.gif

smile.gif just caught up with this thread - congrats to you both on your pending grandpahoods!!

My oldest is 22 and in a steady relationship, middle is 20 and youngest was 17 earlier this week - so I guess I'm also getting towards that 'age' whistling.gif

Great news, Dog! Congrats to you and your sweet family! What a great thing!

Thank goodness she doesn't look like you wink.gif ! If my granddaughter looked like me, we're talking 80 before any guy would marry her!

Take care, my friend, and enjoy Haley Jo! Couldn't be happier for you! thumbs_up.gif
