"Johannes" was born to cousin Q's older brother and his wife at 10:18 p.m., weighing in at 8 pounds, 7 ounces.
Was he named for the astronomer Johannes Kepler? Or perhaps for the inventor of the printing press, Johannes Gutenberg? Maybe they're hoping he'll be a composer like Johannes Brahms? What about the painter Johannes Vermeer? Actually, if you were really good at Cockney, you might be able to figure out his real name. :)
Have you been reading long enough to remember when I blogged his parents' wedding reception at Pearl Chinese Cuisine - San Diego several years ago?
And when older brother "Pablo" was born almost two years ago?
Gosh, this is turning into a family blog.
Even with all the new babies around, I had forgotten how tiny newborns are. So small and adorable. And what a head of hair!
And such tiny toes.
The boys are the spitting image of my cousin. So much so that one of their friends jokingly asked my cousin's wife, "Who's the mom?" :P
It amazes me that the boys also have my cousin's facial expression, down to the closing of the same eye. From left to right, that's cousin Q's older brother when he was young, his firstborn "Pablo," and second son "Johannes."
And of course, no visit was complete without bringing some food for the tired parents. This time around, it was sandwiches from Cook's Torta's - Monterey Park. But I'll save that for another post.
Congratulations! You know, these are the only two boy grandbabies right now?
