His name is Micah, the first great grandson, or great grandkid period.

He's visiting us for the first time. Oh, we were there when he was born, proud as any great grandparents could be, but now he has come for a visit. What fun!

His momma, Shanda, and her sister Kasey used to come visit when they were younger, maybe spend a week or so with us without their parents. We really had a terrific time when they did. Micah is not old enough to visit by himself but we are so happy Kenneth and Shanda came too. Makes for a great holiday weekend.

 Micah, GiGi (for great-grandmother) and Po.

It makes quite an excursion, the amount of luggage required is daunting to say the least. We weren't the ones to pick them up at the airport but somehow I have a mental picture of an airplane landing pulling a u-haul trailer.

Well, I don't really have time to write on a blog right now, he will be up soon from his nap and we will go back to . . . bonding.

So sweet. Gigi and ? What will he call you?

Tell Saundra that she DOES NOT look old enough to be a great-grandmother.

I let the other grandkids decide what they would call me. The other grandfather wanted to be called 'Pa' but somehow for me it ended up being 'Po.' I've always been Po and I guess that will continue.

And Saundra doesn't even look old enough to be a grandmother, much less a GiGi.

You're right. The perfect post material. Loved it, Terry. =]

Terry and Saundra,

What a beautiful baby! I'm so happy you have the opportunity to spend some one-on-one time with him. Precious, precious days...
