A sudden blessing we didn't expect

 And viola!  I'm a grandpa:

Proud parents adorable baby - an excellent match

Yes, according to the experts, about four weeks early.   But her size doesn't suggest that.  Instead, we're figuring they were off by a couple weeks.  Probably closer to the first of June.  Meaning she - and yes, it's a girl - is a couple weeks early.  Owing to that, she's receiving special care in the hospital right now.  But praying everything works itself out soonest and the proud and happy parents can bring her home in a couple days.  So that's where I've been.  We didn't see it coming, that's for sure.  Both families are nearby, so everyone swung into action, and my son rose to the occasion.  But the star of the show was my wonderful daughter-in-law who was a trooper and then some, and of course our newest and youngest addition to clan Griffey.  So praising God right now, with a healthy dose of prayers, and blessing on her, her parents, and all of us who have already been blessed by her.  


  1. Keeping you all in mind.

  2. Hooray!

    That's just like kids isn't it? You have these plans and expectations and then they go and be their own person and do stuff like showing up early. ;) Makes you love 'em even more doesn't it?

    From one preemie to another, it's great to see she's looking healthy and is going to be fine. May God bless her and her parents with many joyful years. And may your time as a grandpa be the best ever of your life, Dave.

  3. Congratulations!!! Four weeks is really not too early in the grand scheme of things. One more week and she'd been officially "full term" anyway. But glad Mom and baby are getting the deserved extra attention :) What a blessing for you all!

  4. How can we not see how good God is? God has blessed you all!
