A New Leaf on Our Family Tree - Charlie is Here!

Charles James "Charlie" L...... was born today, 12 September 2014, in Huntington Beach, California.  He's 19.5 inches long, and a 7 pounds 9 ounces bundle of joy.

Daughter Tami had this scheduled, and it went off without a hitch.  Charlie's world just really changed and it's no mystery why he's napping.  It's bright out, and there are different sounds.  He cried a bit during the process, which is good.

Charlie joins his two older sisters, Lauren, age 9, and Audrey, age 6.  They are really looking forward to being big sisters!

Charlie is our 5th grandchild, and third grandson.  The more the merrier, I say.  Another descendant.  I added him to my RootsMagic database today.

I posted his picture on Facebook, and bragged that he is an 8th cousin, 6 times removed to Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States.  He's also the descendant of 9 Mayflower passengers and several colonial New England governors.

We may go visit Charlie next week when they come home from the hospital, so if Genea-Musings is "light" for several days, you'll understand (I hope!).

Congratulations to Tami. Looks like Charles is starting out pretty much without head-hair, a family match (for now). I wish good health and joy to all.

Congratulations! I know you will continue to emjoy each and every one of these marvelous gifts known as grandchildren. Yes, it is true. It is your responsibility to love them, enjoy them and spoil them. You then return them to their parents to take care of fixing them up! ;-)
