Our third grandchild and first grandson, Jasper James Gronek, made his appearance today at 5:22 AM this morning. He is the first child for daughter Heather and son-in-law Tom. Although Heather had been planning a home birth, the labour dragged on and she was moved to the hospital in Stratford (the midwife did not have privileges at the Woodstock hospital right next door). The new arrival weighed 7 pounds 12.5 ounces and was 21.7 inches long.
Congratulations to the new mom and dad. We look forward to spoiling young JJ along with his cousins Jolene and Robyn.
