Yesterday we paid a visit to meet Jons new niece baby Monica. After a touch and go delivery, sweet baby made her way into the world on the 5th of September. Although she was a couple of weeks early, she still weighed in at over 8 pounds!!! Healthy and beautiful!
Jons hand is almost as large as Monica Irenes. Her middle name was chosen in honour of Jonathon and Jessicas paternal grandmother Gladys Irene, who left us several years ago and watches from above. She was a very sweet and loving woman and we miss her much.
I love this shot. It's not often that you see tender moments like that from a 16 year old boy. We had to nudge him a bit to hold her because she's so tiny. Jons humour came into play to remind me that when we were going to pick out a puppy, he dropped Sydney. Actually, he didn't really drop her, she got away on him with a twist and a wiggle. No worries Jon, wee babies don't jump and you're planted solidly on the couch. Congratulations to my stepdaughter Jessica, her husband Mark, big Sis Joycelyn and Bro's Ethan and Mikey.
