Lanikai's First Grandbaby!
Arriving a week early, Parker got things moving here in Hawai`i where Grandma Brook scrambled to change her ticket to the mainland to the earliest possible date. She flew to San Francisco on the 7th, and drove through the night to meet up with the happy family as they arrived home from the hospital at 1 a.m. (!) Parker must have really wanted to go home: who gets out of the hospital at 1 a.m.?
Grandpa Dave is finishing up loose ends here in Kailua, and will travel to the mainland on Thursday to meet up with the growing ohana. Parker's other grandparents, Shari and Mike are lucky enough to live just twenty minutes away from the little guy. Oh yes, he was 8 lbs. 7 oz and 21 inches long. A big boy already!
As his Dad Doug said, "Welcome to the world, Parker Gramann."
