A photo says a thousand words...

On Thursday, armed with pillows and a bottle of Advil, Tom and I drove to Fort Wayne to meet Garrett for the first time. (Yes, we finally made it there!)

Here is Tom's reaction on holding Garrett for the first time.
And here is Garrett's reaction. I wonder what he is thinking?At three weeks, Garrett seems to be mostly sleeping or eating. Doesn't he look quite content in his grandmother's arms?The weather was beautiful, so Tom and I took Garrett out for a stroller ride. Garrett slept most of the way, but the three of us enjoyed the fresh air, and I got in my walk. (Walking is so much more fun when you're pushing stroller with someone special.)
And last but not least, here is Garrett with his happy parents.

Oh Ellen, I'm so glad you finally made it out to meet your new grandson! He's so adorable! I love the pics of Garrett with his grandfather especially! Congratulations once again. Hope you're feeling better and better too.

Great to see you with your new grandson Ellen, you lucky & proud grandparents!:) Garrett (love the name) thinks his grandfather is very big and therefore wont argue with him LOL.
Take care now.

what a family resemblance with Garrett, his father and grandfather - sorry Ellen but the male line seems to be strong here LOL ! Glad you made it and finally got to hold the little angel - what a sweet photo with you and also pushing the stroller. Mel
