Let me introduce myself. I'm your mother's father which makes me one of your two grandfathers. Only six people in the whole world can call me grandpa and you're one of them. Your grandma, your mother's mom, is Gladys.
You are now a member of our family. One of the greatest joys I've had in my life is being part of this family. It's a place where you get a big part of your identity. You'll always be known as the son of Adam and Krista. It's also a source of strength and encouragement and laughter.
You and I talked ourselves out the day you came home from the hospital. We talked about everything, including your parents and your brothers and sisters and food and countries to visit and cars to drive. After more than an hour I nodded off with your eyes still open. You are a good listener.
I love you little man. Jesus loves you too and so do your parents and siblings, as well as your other grandparents. You are loved. Never forget that. Remember Who You Are.
We'll talk more later.
Again, welcome to our family which is now made better by your arrival.
