It’s a boy

My granddaughter Leila has a little brother – Aiden Michael. He couldn’t wait ‘til the due date, he clearly was anxious to get a early start on life (like his grandfather). He weighed in at 6 lb 10 oz and measures 19 inches. Like his sister and his mother, a compact package that is is truly a bundle of energy.

The cycle of life continues, and is amazing as ever.

Congratulations!

I always loved the name Aidan for a boy (I know there are a few different ways to spell it :-) ). I wound up with two girls but if I did have a boy, that would have been my first pick!

Let's see, that's 3.024 Kg. How many weeks premature was Aiden? Any respiratory problems? How's the (hopefully breast) feeding going? Any jaundice?

Sorry, just got home from w*rk....Congratulations!
