Today marks the second anniversary of the birth of our first grandchild. In this day of modern communication, his imminent arrival was announced in a text message from our son Brent to tell us that Katie’s water had broken and they were headed to the hospital.
LBeau and I were in Atlanta for a concrete convention, which meant that it would take us an extra two hours to get to Jackson, Mississippi. We packed quickly and hit the road, passing through Birmingham without batting an eye.
Brent Walker Beaumont, Jr., arrived on April 25, 2007, and changed our lives. We became grandparents—KBeau and LBeau. What fun it’s been. So in honor of Walker’s second birthday, I’m posting some of my favorite pictures from the last two years.
They spent Christmas 2007 with Katie’s family in Washington. Here are Katie and her sisters with Walker and cousin Chloe. Walker was the first boy in that family and will continue to be so. Chloe now has a sister Charlotte, and Walker’s sister Lauren will arrive next month.
Happy Birthday, Walker. See you soon.
