New Nephew!

Our new baby nephew was born today!  He weighed the same as his cousin Eddie--a whopping 8 lbs, 2 oz.    What a blessing to have a new baby in the family.  I can't wait to meet this little guy!
We can already see that he's quite handsome.
And how wonderful to have another John Bower in the family!  I can't wait to see him wearing his Papa John's signature plaid shirt so they can be twins.

On Easter Sunday when we saw Bernie I told Eddie there was a baby in her tummy.  He said, "I want to see it.  Where's the baby?" and tried to lift her shirt to see.  Haha.  I showed him this picture when he got up this morning and explained who it was.  Again he said, "I want to see it!"   He'll get to go visit this weekend with Dave but I'll be out of town this weekend so I'll have to wait until later. Phooey on that.

Now I get to plan a welcome-to-the-world celebratory meal for us to enjoy.  His heritage is Italian, Filipino, and Irish.  So perhaps corned beef, potato gnocchis, and purple ube cake for dessert?

Congrats to Mike, Bernie, and Zennie!
