Seth's First Photo Shoot

After this very eventful day in the Heitzig Family, here's a few more pictures of Seth Nathaniel when he was only about 30 minutes old.

All Wrapped Up and No Place to Go!

A Father and Son Moment

Already puckering up for lots of kisses.

Meet Seth!

This is my grandson Seth Nathaniel Heitzig on the day of his birth. This kid is picture perfect after the C-Section delivery today. He weighed in at 6 pounds and 1 ounce at right at 18 inches in length. Nate and Janae are very contented and are resting comfortably in their hospital room. I was in the recovery when Seth was brought in to be "footprinted" and weighed. Seriously, no bias about this, he is one incredibly handsome boy! This picture was taken right after his first meal while he was sleeping.

Skip begat Nathan and Nathan begat Seth

My son Nate and his wife Janae are in biblical terms, "great with child". She is due on August 30th but will probably give birth via C-section on the 26th due to a breech presentation unless the baby turns. Becoming a grandparent is lots of fun but also thought provoking in terms of TIME! I'm speaking of the perception of the increasing rapidity at which time passes. Yes, it only seemed liked yesterday that Nate was a little kid running around in his cowboy outfit. I know, I know, it's very cliche, but it's true. Now with the coming of a grandson my thoughts turn towards "the balance of a lifetime" and how to make maximum impact with time left. The process has been extremely fruitful for me and it has helped me to refocus and reevaluate--always a good thing. At any rate, I am ready to have Seth Alexander learn how great God is by providing him with a grandpa that spoils him like crazy!
