It's a very strange thing for a guy to be a grandfather. It's strange enough to be a dad. When your children begin to have children, the circle of life becomes more abundantly clear.
My daughter, Heather, will have her baby son, Liam, in about six weeks. My daughter, Amanda, took these photos of Heather (and Liam) earlier in the week.
Heather's husband is serving with US Forces in Afghanistan and she's living with me until he returns from the war. They'll allow him home on leave at Christmas time and he'll see his little son for the first time then.
