First Cousins Meet for the First Time

Not even 24 hours old. My daughter Laura and her husband James have a new member of the family.

Charles Joseph.  7 pounds 15 ounces.  19 1/2 inches long.

He arrived Thursday night but Anna and Michael were home in bed resting up for the Peppe Meet at Ohio State Swim Club Friday afternoon.

Friday morning, we went to Riverside hospital on the way to the swim meet. It was on the way to OSU.

  4. Oh, Ruth, I’d click a LOVE button too. Congratulations! I’m not sure I realized there was family in Croatia. Isn’t Skype amazing? Are they there for work? We hoped to go there this summer, but our plans have changed, and we have our fingers crossed for next time.
