I bet I got the best Christmas present of all. I had given up, but today found out that,
I'm going to be a grandpa".
The baby is due July 5th. When this hits you at my age it is totally unreal. Those of you that know David, our son can just imagine how proud we all are. It only took about 11 years of trying.
Now comes the hard part...waiting and praying everything works out all right.

Good thing you bought that quad cab! Babyseats don't fit well in a RC.
My father's b-day was july 5th and my youngest son is expecting their second on july 2.
