    I am proudly announcing the arrival of our first grandchild, Elliot James Bradshaw. He suprised us 5 weeks early, giving us a few anxious hours befor his birth. He weighed in at 6 lbs 8 oz and 19 inches long, a very good weight for a preemie. He was able to come home with his parents yesterday. :-D

    Awwww he's such a special little boy. I hope we'll see many more photographs of him Gail.
    Many congratulations to his parents and, of course, the proud grandparents. :-D
