Arriving about 8 PM this evening at exactly 7 pounds, I would like to introduce you to Sadie Anne Raffaele. She is my first grandchild, the daughter of my daughter and son-in-law, Kelly and David Raffaele.
Sadie was my mother's name (the great-grandmother of the new-born) and she was named for her Aunt Sadie so the name goes back in the family to the 1870s.
It's been a long and busy day and may remain busy for a few more days. I might not be writing as many newsletter articles as usual, as I will be "busy."
