Our granddaughter Chloe was born last Thursday night. Miles seems just fine with her. Have you guys heard about “The Baby’s Gift”? It’s where the dethroned only child goes to hospital and gets a present from the newborn. Retail doesn’t miss a trick.

(At least it’s better than The Diaper Game. I am never going to a baby shower again.)

    Congratulations, grampa Roger. She is beautiful.

  5. Congratulations, Roger and Richard! I have a lot of trouble imagining you at a baby shower, however. Can’t stand them myself. Does that make me a bad person?
