When I was born my father was 52 years old. Consequently his parents were long deceased so no grand parents on my fathers side. On my mothers side my grandmother died the the year before I was born and my grand father died the year I was born. So I had a life devoid of grand parents.

I think these pictures were taken when he was around 4 hours old, little James was 2 years old last month and seem to be totally disinterested. Oh and yes Mother and son doing great thank you.
By the way the baby is holding his hand in the bottom photo. You can tell he is already a great thinker.

Thanks everyone, we are still waiting for a name, they didn't know if it was going to be a boy or girl until he was born and the smart money was on a girl, we had a family sweep-stake and my sister got both the date and s*x correct, the normal prize is a bottle of champagne but being tea total she will have to get something different.

Congrats Pilot =D> =D>

A home birth ey?

Even more remarkable when you hear all the old farts on here saying they were born in the family
home eons ago before there was electricity, running water & flushing karsies. :lol:

You know? ... the old horse & cart days. :wink:
