Shawn's turn

Well as is painfully obvious, Susann is doing most of the blogging on this thing but I thought I would give it a shot.

For those of you who don't know this is going to be the first grandchild for my parents and I think it is fair to say they are most pleased.  They have had a few health concerns over the last several months so Susann and I had a hard time not telling them sooner than the 12 week check up but we managed to keep the secret.  As soon as we got the green light from our doctor I was on the phone to share the good news.

Dad was certainly happy but my Mom was over the moon.  She has been waiting patiently for a grandchild as all of her friends have had the joy of multiply grand kids and in some cases great grandchildren.  Now she gets to do some of the talking.  As I said earlier "most pleased."

To say Susann and I are happy is a major understatement and we are so lucky that we have such a supportive network of family and friends.  If you have been following the blog you are aware of the difficulties we experienced along the way.  Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers - they worked.

  1. Great job Shawn - and I know how much you like to write!! I think if you give it a try every now and then, your will be grateful years from now when you look back and remember. I had a sense this was your parents first grandchild -- I know your mom is thrilled! All the best to you and Susann.
