The Newest Descendant
After too many hours of labor he was born this morning, January 10, 2016, at 5:56 a.m. He weighed 8# 3.7 ounces and was 21" long. He was born on his due date -- and on his sister's second birthday.
Isaac's name was chosen, or perhaps adopted, before he was born. I'm sure his older brother and sister heard his parents discuss names. Over Thanksgiving weekend when my daughter and her family were visiting, her 3-year-old son approached her and patted her belly. He turned to me and said, "Baby Isaac's in there." Surprised, I asked my daughter if they'd already chosen the name. "We're not sure yet." she said. I don't know how they chose his name but I suspect that big brother's use of "Isaac" encouraged its choice.
This is the first grandchild I haven't been able to hold within a day of birth. He'll get hugs, cuddles, and kisses when we visit next.
Welcome to earth and to our family, Baby Isaac. We're looking forward to meeting you.
