Brysen Chesterfield

This past week we welcomed Brysen Chesterfield to our family. He was born Monday, June 25, at 6:42 p.m. He checked in at 7 lbs and 4 oz, and 20 inches.

His middle name is Jan's dad's middle name. To my sadness, I never knew her dad, but I wanted to honor him, and I like the name. I told Jan it sounds like it needs a number after it, like Brysen Chesterfield II or something. But we skipped that part.

He's a keeper. Hopefully today, we will get him up and walking around. He's had a day or so to relax and now it's time to start carrying his weight around here. This laying around and sleeping all the time has to stop.

In Canada and the UK, what you call a sofa is what we call a Chesterfield.

That being the case, your little guy was born to be a couch potato. Give him a few more days of laying around - it is his named destiny. :-)

Congratulations, Larry, on adding another arrow to your quiver!

I enjoy reading your commentary and appreciate your clear thinking!
