Owen Pembroke

My grandson Owen Pembroke Atkinson was born at 10:22AM this morning. He is perfect. He even has a polite cry. Trish is doing fine, even after 9-plus hours of labor. Justin says he is tired, too.

I remember how happy I was when Justin was born and never thought that I could feel that way again. I was right. This is a different feeling, yet just as powerful. I find my eyes brimming with tears of joy almost constantly.

I am really going to enjoy being a grandpa. Did I mention that Owen is perfect?
