This is What We Are Here For!

A while back Kelly and Jon told us there were pregnant with our second grandchild.  We decided that if there was any way possible, we would be there to help out.  And that's what happened.

Almost a week ago, Harrison Warner Goldman joined us!

Kelly was notified the previous week that the doctor would be inducing her on Tuesday morning.  So Pam and I came over and planned on staying a couple of nights with Brooks.
It was quite different than almost two years ago when Brooks came along.  This time Kelly and Jon handled it all like pros.  Very excited and like they had done this before...

So off they went and we waited for updates.  We even picked hours of the day when we expected the baby to be born.  It seemed to go pretty slowly until the mid afternoon, then before we knew it, Harrison was born at 3:52 PM.  Healthy and about as precious as he could be.

We were able to go over for a few minutes and hold him and see him.  It was another beautiful baby boy.  Quite the same, yet a lot different.  He had no complications, started eating right away and was just sleeping away and getting used to everything.

We were trying to remember how Brooks looked as a new born and Kelly did a side by side picture of both boys:
The next morning we took Brooks over to see mommy and daddy and meet his new little brother.  He wasn't sure what to make of all of it.  I caught a photo of him near mommy's bed.

This photo needs a caption:
 What title would you give to this photo??

Here's a photo of some proud grand parents with their newest and second grandson;

 Mom and Dad checking out Harrison.

 Kelly came home on Thursday and Brooks got to see more of Harrison.
And everyone is adjusting well.  Tomorrow he will be one week old.  And Brooks can't wait to show him some tricks on his iPad.

We are having a lot of fun with Harrison and adjusting to his schedule and spending time over at Kelly and Jon's when we can help out.  So far it's been a busy week but an exciting one.  We think we'll probably be here in the area until mid-May.  We'll see how things go.

That is for now - thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
