Introducing my grandson

Cooper Earle Johnston
born Dec. 18, 2009
to Holly and Brad Johnston, Nanaimo, BC.

And a few days, later, dozing on Dad's chest.

In 'my day', we stayed in hospital for five days, waited for the hospital photographer to come around on about the third day, then waited a couple of weeks for the mail to arrive with said - very expensive - pics.
Then mailed them to all and sundry.
("Just look at her!" said my uncle of Holly, with her hair brushed up into a punky point. "She looks just like a toilet brush".)
These days, Cooper's pic appeared on Facebook within an hour for all the world to see - other than his great-grand parents Jo and Bill Peterson in the UK, who will have to wait a few weeks until someone gets aound to printing out a pic or two and putting it in the mail.
The more things change, the more they remain the same... everyone loves baby pics.
