I'm a grandpa (again)

Mark was born this morning at 7:27 CDT. His weight was 6 pounds 13.7 ounces and 20.5 inches long. Mother and baby doing fine. Every one else is a nervous wreck. It was our youngest daughters first and our seventh grandchild. Pass out the cigars.

Thanks everyone. Michelle started in labor around midnight and went to the hospital around 3 AM. My wife and I got there around 3:15 AM. It sure has been a long day. Everyone is still on cloud nine. Again, thanks to all who sent in their congratulations.

Warmest regards and congratulations from the Winecoff household. Grandchildren are surely a blessing, as are grandparents!
So does he start building tomorrow?

Again, thanks to all. He will get to come home tomorrow. If I knew how to post pictures I would. I took several with my digital camera.

He and the mother are doing fine. The father is still strutting around like the proud father, he should be. We just thank God he was born healthy.
