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