Early this morning at 12:53, Leonardo Xavier was born to Sarah and Peder. He is a big boy already: 9 lbs., 6 oz., 21.5 inches long. Peder says he resembles Felix when he was born, though his head doesn't seem as large. They plan to call him Leo, which I like. How fun that he was born on my Aunt Liz's birthday. She would have loved that!
Leo's big sister is Aurelia, now 4 years old, and big brother, Felix, who will turn two in 18 days, on May 1.
This is grandchild number 7 for me. In order, they are Josiah (turning 8 on May 19), Annika (6), Aurelia (4), Marshall (3), William (2), and Felix (turning 2 on May 1). So, they were born 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2012 - just like stair steps - but so much cuter. I'll be heading to the jewelry store after work today to order my shoe for Leo.
Congratulations, Peder and Sarah!!
