Riley Yuriko Towne

Our first granddaughter Riley Yuriko Towne made her grand entrance into the world late yesterday afternoon. Mommy and baby are doing fine. Mommy even felt well enough to watch the Shark’s game last night (from her hospital bed of course!) The little tyke was born with a head full of dark wavy hair and weighed in at 7 pound 14 ounces, 20 inches. Riley’s Mama (My Beloved) and Papa (me) are so proud that we can’t wear shirts with buttons for fear of popping them off. I’m attaching photos of Big Brother Thomas and his baby sister.
With love,

      Thank you, my friend. We’re all delighted now, but I suspect it won’t be long before Thomas begins to think of it as a mixed blessing after having been an only child for nearly five years.

  6. Congratulations, Gramps. What gorgeous hair already. 😀 ❤
