Another new Pentaxian.

Allow me to also add my name to the growing ranks of proud Papa's but in this case it's Grandpa.

My son just had a a beautiful and healthy baby boy. Mom and family are doing well.

A little something from my son's cell phone a few hours after birth.

Enjoy the new addition to the family. If you want to get him started early in photography, the K-7 has a "toy camera" setting.

Congrats grandad. Your first grandchild, Peter?
It's a beautiful thing to see - and of course that Pentaxians are multiplying vertically, not just horizontally!
Enjoy the new addition to the family!

Congratulations Peter.

Still say they all look alike at birth.

But he is adorable.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. He's really a gift and yes it's my first grandchild. We haven't seen him yet in person because my wife had a short stay in the hospital and there were a few swine flu cases in at the same time. She wasn't exposed to them directly but we've decided to be safe about this and wait 2 weeks before going to visit.

It's killing me not to jump in the car....
