Jacob has arrived

My first great grandchild made a really noisy arrival this morning at 3am, my grandson rang me at 3.15 and he was howling in the background and Im not surprised as it was snowing in Norwich at the time, he was probably a hell of lot warmer where he'd been.
Anyway my grandson and his wife have decided to call him Jacob Stephen Martin, the later two are after the two grandfathers and as my grandson also has Stephen in his name hes passing on the family tradition. Im so glad that he made it back from Afghanistan in time for this special event and he sounded so happy on the phone.
I want to wish my granddaughter, grandson, great grandson and my eldest daugher a very Happy Future to you all, and to thank you all for giving me this very special present for Mothers Day. Oh and by the way he weighted in at 7lbs.15ozs a real whopper, he looks well filled out so will probably be a good feeder, I hope my grandson has a good wallet to keep up with him.
