A new grandson!!!



Donald Ray Bayne III has arrived - all 7 lbs. 2 oz, 20 3/4" of him. He was 3 1/2 weeks early, but is doing wonderfully. Jamie is tired, but doing great. Rusty is busy - very busy!!

West Virginia is so far away!!

Is Donnie not the cutest baby you have ever seen - so much hair (unlike our side of the family) and such dark hair. He's such a charmer!!! There is nothing quite like a fresh new baby.

As you can imagine, Grampy is so pleased to have a grandson named after him!

Welcome to the world Donnie!!

Precious pics of your new G-son. Having a namesake is an honor! WV is way over on the other side of the country...with OHIO and Missouri where I have some of my family living. :(

It is a good thing he was early -- imagine how much he would have weighed in another 3 weeks.
Such nice pictures of him. I love the little hand in the big hand.
Congratulations to everyone!
