Grandpa stkr

This is going to be a short post since I am completely exhausted, and I've been up for the last 39 hours.

Today, at 2:40 pm CST, I became a Grandfather

My daughter gave birth to a healthy baby boy...Austin Blake Foreman. He was 20" long and weighed in at 8 lbs, 10.3 oz.

This started yesterday as the wife and I were out of town, in Indiana, for my wife's grandfather's funeral...he was 98 years old and passed away this Monday. While we were at my sister-in-law's house, we got a call that the doctor had admitted my daughter into the hospital after her doctor's appointment due to having elevated blood pressure. We made the quick trip home while doing 80 mph through Chicago. The new Honda Odysses do handle pretty well.


Austin was originally due Dec 11th, but the doctor felt as though he needed to go ahead and be delivered, so they induced labor slowly. The daughter did very well, and both her and the baby are fine.

Here's a few pics from this afternoon

Austin Blake Foreman, born 12-02-2005 @ 2:40 pm CST

Well...I'm a litle fugged up right now. Crown Royal; and diet pepsi actually do go together.

We had some drame today with the loser botfriend's mom. She's been a pain if our ass for a while, and wasn'r supposed to show up at the hos[ital tha WE"RE paying for. Well, we found out that she was the and the duaghter lied about her bieng there. I',m so fuggin pised that that bich had the nerv to show up.

two weeks ago she asaulted her son with a baseball bat, and he's been living with us ever since. we werre giving hin a chance to change his life, but he still wants to have contyact with her. Fugg him! They're coming home from the hostpital tomorrow, and I'm thinking that he's goingf to be finding a new place to ;ive pretty fuggin soon.

maybe Ishouldn't be typing while I'n fugged up, but I had to vent a ;ittle.

I'm going to bed

Okay...I sobered up since my last post. Somehow, I didn't even have a hangover...can't beat that.

We brought him and the daughter home yesterday and they're both doing fine. It will be interesting to watch her learn what it means to be a new mother and what it takes to raise a child.
