Welcome Lucas Alexander Cintron

bannerTo take a gentle break from my normal American Indian posts, I thought I”d share with you the latest edition to our family, Lucas Alexander Cintron, who was born on October 27, 2013.

This is my second grandchild, and I”m thrilled to introduce him to you.

Trina & LucasThis photo was taken on the day of the birth (or perhaps the next day) — and is my daughter and the newborn.  He weighed in at 6 lbs, 8 oz. — he”s an absolute sweetheart.

I had two girls and so this is the first boy in our family in a while.  He was a week old yesterday, and both mother, father and I have commented (without talking to each other first) that it”s like looking at a tiny version of my ex.

Genetics are interesting, aren”t they — sometimes they seem to skip generations — and then suddenly appear 2 or 3 generations later.

He”s also very much a boy — very different from my granddaughter, who very much a female.  It”s hard to explain, seeing as how he”s so very tiny, and yet he is already very male.

And here”s a atoledo.com picture of the proud papa, mama and baby on the day (or perhaps the day after) the birth.photo 1









To even out the picture, I thought I”d post a couple of pictures of my granddaughter — recently taken (about 1 month ago or so).  Lila & Paul & me 313The picture was snapped by my husband, Paul, in the foreground of the picture.

We were at an incredibly beautiful park  — one that both my granddaughter and I have come to love very much — lots of woods, lots of space, lots of fields for play — about 5 different baseball diamonds — football fields, etc., paths, trees, all changing colors … simply beautiful.

And now we are blessed with another life that has enriched our lives.

So to celebrate, I thought I”d give away another book — ebook or mass market (for those who don”t yet have an ereader).

All you need to do is come on in an leave a comment, and join me today as we welcome Lucas Alexander Cintron to our family.

And coming soon, in May 2014, THE ANGEL AND THE WARRIOR

  1. Oh Karen, he is beautiful! Not very big tho. My first grandchild was 10 lb. and second(her brother) was 11 lb. My daughter decided to stop there. LOL I told her the next would be half grown. But only had one who was 6lb. 3oz. Have one great=grand that was 6lb. 4oz. These were our only small ones out of 12 grands and 18 greats. Congratulations to the family for the new little Gift from GOD. Sure hoping to win one of your books. As I’ve said before I have a small amount of Indian blood also. Had some great ? on both of my Parents sides. I wish could find some info. tho. So glad you now have a girl and boy.

  2. Karen, aren’t babies wonderful? They let us know that the world is going on! This little one is so tiny but he proves that in God’s opinion the world should go on! Congratulations!

  3. Congratulations to all of you. A baby is the sweetest blessing ever. I think grands are the best things that happen to us and grand parenthood is the best club we can enter into. May your brand new grandson have a long, healthy life and take you down wonderful roads filled with adventure.

  4. What a wonderful blessing! Lucas is precious and I know everyone will delight in this newest addition to the family. Congratulations to all!!

  5. He’s adorable. Your granddaughter is gorgeous too. It’s nice that they live near you. It’s so much fun to baby sit and play and watch them change. New babies are simply amazing!

    My daughter is expecting our second grandchild April 2nd. She just found out that she is now considered high risk with a diagnosis of complete placenta previa. Frightening! Everyone’s plans are changing for the holidays. I’m prepared to take care of my daughter and her 2 yo if she needs to go on bed rest for bleeding.

  6. Aww, congrats on a new grandchild!! I just adore babies. What a blessing for your family. 🙂

  7. Oh, I am so happy for you and all you other grandmothers out there. It is the one thing still missing in my life. I had my children in my 30’s and my two girls are 26 and 29 and so far they haven’t made that decision but I hope someday…

  8. Oh, Kay, what heart-touching pictures! Family is the greatest blessing, isn’t it? And there is something so poignant and special about grandkids, I think because we can see part of our “future”. Hugs to you all!

  9. Your grandchildren are adorable! Our grandson’s baby pictures look like my husband’s even though none of our three children’s did–we seemed to have skipped a generation also. The thing that makes us wonder about genetics is how much this same boy looks like MY sister’s grandson….

  10. Hi Maxie!

    Wow! Those are big babies. My babies were generally around 7 lbs and a little over. Great about your Indian heritage. I, too, know it’s there, but know very little about it. Thanks for the post.

  11. Hello Laurie!

    So you have another one on the way, also. I don’t really know what this is that you mention. If you could, could you email me privately at karenkay(dot)author(at)earthlink(dot)net about what this is — I’ve not heard of it before.

    May she and the baby do well and whatever this is, get fixed up fast.

  12. Congratulations, Karen. He is a doll, as is your granddaughter. I really enjoy having my grandchildren around. Our youngest daughter thinks it is funny that her son is 15 and our oldest daughter has a 2 year old daughter. The year he, Gideon, graduates from high school will be the year she, Lillie, starts kindergarten. I enjoy Lillie, but will be glad when she is old enough to cook, sew, and travel with. We took Gideon with us out West this past summer. Four weeks and we drove from TN to Colorado, through Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, South Dakota, and then home. We had a great time. I look forward to doing a trip like that with her some day.

    Enjoy your grand babies. They are such precious gifts. The best part is when they get fussy, you can give them back and let the parents deal with it : )

  13. Hi Patricia!

    I really enjoyed hearing about this part of your life and the trips that you’ve taken. That’s quite something to consider, I think.

    Thanks for your delightful comment!
