A Beautiful, Wonderful Early Birthday Present

This evening my beautiful granddaughter gave birth to this eagerly awaited adorable little fellow, Henry Ryan, and mommy, baby and daddy are all doing well!  This picture, as I understand it, was taken within an hour of his birth.   Sherry, my daughter, the new grandma, said they put the baby on the mommy's chest for skin to skin contact for about an hour.  How sweet is that?  Norah and Chad are certainly a perfect picure of proud, happy new parents.  There will be pictures flying through the internet and some skyping going on tomorrow.  Christmas will have the magic sparkle again that only little ones bring to the holidays.  We're so glad you are here, Henry, and welcome to the family.  You have grandparents, aunts, uncles, great aunts and great uncles all anxious to hold and cuddle you.  We love you so much. xxxxxoooooxxxxxGreat Grandma
