Grandpa Again

Post by dick » Thu Feb 03, 2011 6:55 pm

Wonderful message from Esther that she saw Lorca's beautiful new daughter via Skype in her hospital room last evening. A proud Leonard was also there.

Baby, Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen came in at 8.3 pounds and very healthy. Mother and Grandad also in great shape.

Absolutely wonderful news. Wishing Lorca, her family and her new baby all the love in the world.

I was so lucky to hear the news of her imminent new arrival from Leonard himself.
When I met him in September, he told me that she was pregnant and I showed him a photo of my grandaughter Jessica and told him that she loves to dance to Closing Time and he said he would just love to see that :)
