Hola loyal reader. Bruce and Mary have recently become newly minted grandparents, so be ready for a bunch of baby and new mom and dad pix. For those of you who prefer to view these posts from the original blog-site, please click here.
We had known the due date (July 20th) for months, so we were a little surprised when we got the VM from daughter Helen last Monday morning that Sammy had called her late the night before telling her that they were on their way to the hospital and Monday morning, 7-11-11, at about 9 Sammy called. Aria Katherine, our first grandchild, was born at 3:01am. Well you know without being told, that on this end it was Niagara Falls for Mary. We were glad to hear that even though she was a little early she was pretty perfect. One interesting thing Sammy noted about the timing of Aria’s arrival was that it was 100 years ago to the day that mom Annah’s paternal grandma, Annah Katherine, was born. Pretty cool, eh?
We will be visiting Sammy, Annah, and Aria in early August and Mary is counting the hours and knitting like crazy and I find that I really enjoy shopping with Mary for baby girl things at the vendors in La Plaza Grande, which, cheap sucker that I am, really surprises me. Now I know what people mean when they talk about spoiling the grand-kids. That will be fun.
Thanks for visiting gentle reader. As always Bruce appreciates any and all commentary. Hasta proxima Domingo!
