Happy Birthday Mikey the III:

...and here we are, me and my new and incredibly adorable little nephew, Michael Gene Ballard the III. He was named after his daddy, who was named after our daddy - there is never quite so amazing a moment as holding a little newborn baby in your arms. This little baby just left the presence of God to be with us. Amazing... doesn't begin to describe it. I love you so much already, little one. Happy Birthday from your Aunt Deb. [That does have a nice ring to it, doesn't it??]

So, after he was born my dad was there and my brother took him to my dad for him to hold him. My brother goes, "you have to hold his head, dad."

My dad just gave him the look and was quiet for a second and said, "you know I've done this before..." I should mention that this is my mom and dad's first grandchild...

Here is another picture. Isn't he cute!!
