Payton Charlotte Paul was born on October 13th weighing 8 lbs. 10 oz. and 21 1/2” in length. Like her mother and aunt (my two daughters), she was born with a full thick head of black hair. She has all the right parts and is so far a very silent infant unlike her older brother that began waking the dead from day one.

I like my three grands alot, you know. They are far superior to their parents ;=)

What I wouldn’t do ? Not much. This is what it’s ALL about.

I love the grandkids. Got 6. What I really enjoy is watching them do to their parents what their parents used to do to me to drive me crazy. When my oldest grandson was 4, I watched him cut the power cord to his dads router.It was absolutely great!

On three occasions, I have given my oldest grandchild (Alex – 2 1/2) a piece of wood while he was in the shop. I told him to put it in his pocket and leave it there, but if Mommy or Daddy asked what that is in his pocket he must point at it and say “I got wood”. It worked as planned on the third attempt. lol

He’s got his own swivel barstool out here and wants to watch Barney on Youtube every time. I will split the screen with Barney on his side and lumberjocks or other on mine.

I threw some Fat Albert and the Cosby kids up and he rejected it summarily within a minute.

Yep, nothing like grandbabies. I only have one, but really enjoy the time I get to spend with her. Mine had a full head of black hair when she was born and her eyes were so dark you couldn’t see the pupils. Now she is very light blonde but the eyes are still almost black. Wierd huh? What do your grandkids call all of you? I’m not old enough for “grampaw” so it’s papadoc.

My youngest daughter Lauren did the same thing… head full of black hair and soon after a blonde.

I’m Grandaddy. Papadoc is cool !

You have a real cutie there, almost as cute as my latest great-grandaughter. Just wait until those big eyes
look up and you and they ask can you make me———-? I swear your heart and head swell way up and you
know you are a master woodworker, no matter what anyone else thinks. Thank you for sharing.
