Introducing.....


Sean K. Leonard.

Hello my friends. Just taking a wee break from sharing my memories, to share with you a photo taken just hours ago of my new Grandson, Sean.

Sean arrived in this world at 5.17 pm on Sunday 21st May 2006, at the Rotunda Maternity Hospital. Parnell Street. Dublin Ireland.

So in the photo above he's the ripe old age of 1 day and 22 hours.

He weighed in at 6 lbs and 12 ozs.

If he could stand he'd be all of 19 and a half inches tall (in his bare feet)

If you're wondering about the photo. No he isn't about to take his first parachute jump. Neither is he taking his first driving lesson. He's strapped into his car seat on his way home from hospital. This is a hospital rule. You must have an approved car restraint for the baby in order to be allowed to take him/her home by car.

If you haven't got one of these restraints they keep him.

I was tempted!

Well no, not really.

Ellen says he's the best looking Leonard baby since she was born. Well since she was born after me, it's okay for her to say that.

I had to take this little time out just to introduce my wee Grandson. We'll get back to normal service as soon as possible, and as soon as I can drag myself away from Sean.

Soon.... with Marie's memories of Gardiner Street.

OVER IN KILLARNEY
MANY YEARS AGO,
ME MITHER SANG A SONG TO ME
IN TONES SO SWEET AND LOW,
JUST A SIMPLE LITTLE DITTY,
IN HER GOOD OULD IRISH WAY,
AND I'D GIVE THE WORLD IF SHE COULD
SING THAT SONG TO ME THIS DAY....
"TOO-RA-LOO-RA-LOO-RAL, TOO-RA-LOO-RA-LI
TOO-RA-LOO-RA-LOO-RAL, HUSH NOW, DON'T YOU CRY! TOO-RA-LOO-RA-LOO-RAL, TOO-RA-LOO-RA-LI, TOO-RA-LOO-RA-LOO-RAL, THAT'S AN IRISH LULLABY."
OFT IN DREAMS I WANDER
TO THAT COT AGAIN,
I FEEL HER ARMS A-HUGGIN' ME
AS WHEN SHE HELD ME THEN.
AND I HEAR HER VOICE A-HUMMIN'
TO ME AS IN DAYS OF YORE,
WHEN SHE USED TO ROCK ME FAST ASLEEP
OUTSIDE THE CABIN DOOR....
THIS IS FOR SEAN, JUST LIKE ME MA SANG TO ME SO MANY YEARS AGO...
