It's a Boy!

No, not the puppy.

Well, of course Beau is, too. But we are celebrating the arrival of yet another new boy in the family this week.

His name is Henry -- or as my son, his dad, says, "Big Hank" (not sure what his mom will think of that) -- and he arrived about 5 a.m this morning, tipping the scales at 9 lbs. 7 1/2 oz. Yikes.

No wonder his mom looked ready to pop on Easter Sunday. She was ready to go then, but he wasn't.

Still he arrived earlier than his Friday due date, and all is well.

No one took a camera, since it was a bit rush-rush at the last minute. But his other grandma should be there now, so I can count on some pictures later today (I hope).

I'm excited to see what his big sister thinks of him. She's all about babies. I hope she thinks he's as great in person as she has thought about the idea of him.

Well Hank was certainly big.
Thank goodness he came before his due date!

How wonderful though you have a new addition.

Hi All,
Many thanks from me and The Prof and from Henry "Big Hank" and his parents and his older sister. We are all thrilled that he is here (well, maybe he's not, but he doesn't get any say in the matter). Will post pic when we finally get some.

A huge welcome to the newest member of your family! Boys seem to run in the family so Henry will be in good company. I am sure his big sister is very excited!

Thank you, Lidia! Lots of boys, yes, and each one is special -- as are the girls, of course! Big sis is thrilled.
