January 31 at 23:48 I became grandfather to two lovely gals, Shelby Virginia,eldest, and Taylor Mary. Their parents, the grandmothers, other grandfather, and the doctors and nurses deserve a small accolade. Factor in the ancestors too; they deserve a little of the credit. Of course the holy one was ever present and got its all in.

The eldest, born 23:48, weighed three pounds and fifteen ounces eighteen and a quarter inches long, head eleven and a half inches, and chest ten and a quarter inches.

Little sister, born thirty seconds later, weighed three pounds and ten ounces, seventeen inches long, head eleven and a quarter inches, and chest ten and a half inches.

Mother, father, grandmother helped bring this descent of double beauty into fruition, but I am grandpa!

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around

Congratulations grandpa.
Now you can look forward to doing what grandparents want to do-love 'em, spoil 'em, send 'em home.
If you don't have a comfortable rocking chair, get one because you'll be spending lots of time in it holding those babies.
In 2007, I was blessed with 2 grandchildren, both girls. Being a grandparent is wonderful.
Visit them as often as you can while they are in the NICU (I'm guessing that's where they are because of the low birth weights), trust the dr's and nurses to take excellent care of them, but don't be afraid to ask questions. It won't be long before they are home.
(My "newest" little angel spent 3 weeks in the NICU)

Congratulations to you and the parents, saint.

I saw this thread and was reminded that I hadn't yet told everyone that we became grandparents on Feb. 2.

Congratulations to all the new Granparents here - X3?

It's an amazing scenario. I echo - enjoy all the time one can muster with the little ones.
The only easy day was yesterday.

Congratulations Matty. Thank you all.

Yes, they will be in the hospital for a couple of weeks.

I guess grandparents become idealists again

No car, but two bicycles in Huntsville and one in NYC. I'll buy them bicycles.
