Yes, finally, I am a grandpa!

Ava Violet was born this morning around 10:30!

Pictures???  Uhh, not yet.  Waiting for some better quality pics than the one I have.  But trust me, she’s gorgeous.  Once I get some pictures, I will post them here.

In the meantime, here are some grandparents quotes: 

“I don’t know who my grandfather was; I’m much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.”
– Abraham Lincoln

My grandfather always said that living is like licking honey off a thorn.
Louis Adamic

A grandfather is someone with silver in his hair and gold in his heart.
– Author Unknown

What is it about grandparents that is so lovely? I’d like to say that grandparents are God’s gifts to children. And if they can but see, hear and feel what these people have to give, they can mature at a fast rate.
– Bill Cosby
The presence of a grandparent confirms that parents were, indeed, little once, too, and that people who are little can grow to be big, can become parents, and one day even have grandchildren of their own. So often we think of grandparents as belonging to the past; but in this important way, grandparents, for young children, belong to the future.”
– Fred Rogers
