New addition....

Postby dgrapes59 » Sun Oct 04, 2009 9:44 pm

Well I never thought I would be so happy about being old enough to be a Grandpa… but I am!

My daughter gave birth to our first grandchild last Friday! Those at CI Cubfest may recall seeing my daughter (pregnant) when she came with my wife, son in law and his two boys when they came to visit. I guess this means she will have a natural attraction to Cubs!

She had a BEAUTIFUL little girl, Maya Anne Totleben, 7 pounds 4 ounces, 19” tall, born 10/2/09 @ 9:08 am. I was fortunate to get over to Indy to see her just after she was born and hold her. I went back over today to visit and I think she is even more beautiful!

Yea, I am a proud Grandpa! I just had to share!

At first I thought you had added another Cub to that pair you have.

Congrats on the new family member.

Thanks everyone!

I am still floating on air, she is such a bundle of joy!

I have an old peddle tractor I salvaged years ago... I guess I had better get busy painting it up like a Cub!

Yes BigDog she is tiny, it has been a few years since I have had one that small!

Talking about tiny, here is her picture when they brought her home from the hospital yesterday (I love this picture!!! :D :D )

Yea, I am a proud Grandpa!
