He's Here!


I'm so pleased to announce that we have been blessed, and our second grandson "M" was born this morning to our son and daughter-in-law!  Baby and mother are doing well, and we are all so excited and happy!

I'm sorry that all I have for now is cell phone photos that my daughter-in-law's sister sent to us from the hospital. She was there for the birth, along with my son, while my daughter-in-law's parents were babysitting my grandson "L."  Little "L" is going to meet his brother in a little while...I'm sure he'll be so surprised! My husband and I can't wait to meet our new grandson very soon -- it's so hard living far away!

I know I've been keeping all of you faithful readers in suspense the past few days and I wanted to let you know the good news as soon as possible.  "M" was born rather late after his due date, and the anticipation was getting exhausting for us, but I guess he wanted to choose this date as his birthday. It is a day that will always be special for our family.

Thank you all for your e-mails, comments, prayers and well wishes!

I just signed on and your post came up first. Congratulations! I think it's pretty amazing nowadays that you can get a picture from faraway so quickly. Not that many years ago you'd have to wait for the pictures to be developed and mailed. I hope you get to visit soon and meet him in person. I've fallen behind reading blogs, but babies don't come until they're good and ready. Little stinkers.

Oh Blessings all around Pat. What a tremendous blessing to have a child arrive safely. I know his brother will be ever so pleased to have a sandbox playmate in a few years.
We had two boys ourselves and always felt so proud to have two sons.

I know you Brooklyn Grandparents have been "happy dancing" today! That's such great news, Pat!!!

So, little "M" is in some pretty great company, as he shares his March 22nd birthday with:

Andrew Lloyd Weber

Stephen Sondheim

Marcel Marceau

Louis L'Amour

AND

Chico Marx

Of course, your little "M" tops that list, doesn't he?

I know you can hardly wait to snuggle with him for the very first time!

congratulations! Such a beautiful baby! My third child was 2 weeks late! She didn't want to leave Mommy. The thing was my mother came from SC to Ohio to stay and to help - on the due date - she only had 2 weeks and was just able to hold her before having to return home!
Hope you're having a blessed day,
Kathy
