I was gone for a bit– I became a grandma again, and got to see my grandson’s birth. : ) He is a beautiful 8 lb 13 oz bundle of joy! We were on edge forever (it seems) ’cause the doctors were unsure of the due date, so over a month we were in the “any day now” mode.  I gave the proud parents’ (my daughter and son-in-law) the gift of rest and bonding with the latest edition to their family by watching their other children for a week. Welcome to the world Luca!
