    New Grandpa

    Well at long last the time is here.....I am now a Grandpa.

    Lacey and my son went to the hospital this morning and then called me about 8:30 a.m. with the news that they were going to induce labor, so the Mrs. and I went up to the hospital along with Lacey's family and waited for the newborn to arrive.

    About 12 hours later it was decided that the baby needed to come caeserean section.......some complications were involved so it was necessary to get the baby here and relieve some of the stress.

    My son and Lacey this morning....





    .....and our new grandson Aiden Michael, he was born at 8:30 p.m. He weighs 6 lbs. 15 oz. and is 19 1/2 inches long.



    Mom and baby Aiden are doing fine and resting when we left the hospital.

    You know what, I'm going to have to get on a 12 step plan about this woodworking thing........

    I was looking at the pic of your son and his lovely wife, and I saw the chair that your son is sitting on and I thought "Nice chair, I wonder who made that........? "

    I tell you, it is a sickness.......

    BTW, I seem to remember it was NOT very long ago you were showing us pics of your son's new bachelor pad.....

    Aiden, great name, do you know the history behind it?

    The boy's and girl's name Aidan 'a(i)-dan' is pronounced AY-den. It is of Gaelic origin, and its meaning is "fire". Anglicized form of the ancient Gaelic name Aedan, a pet form of Aed. Name of a bishop of Ferns (seventh century) who was noted for his kindness and generosity. Saint Aidan (Ireland, seventh century) established the monastery of Lindisfarne, one of the great centers of learning of its time.
    Sounds like a good name for the little fella!
