Grandparents Again!

It's good to be the King (and Queen): Agnes and I are now proud grandparents for the fourth time!

Our daughter Yasmin and her husband Vin delivered their first child - Leya Helene - late yesterday afternoon. Leya weighed in at 7 pounds (3 kg) and 20 inches (0,5 m), and is doing fine, as are mom and dad (who have no idea that they've had their last good night's sleep for a good while).

Leya joins our other grandchildren: Marcy (7), Joe (3), and Noah (1 next month) in our pride and joy collection. I'll post a photo or two later today, after visiting hours.

As a wise sage once said, "If I'd known grandchildren were so much fun, I'd have had them first!"

Have a good day. More thoughts (and pictures) later today.
