At 12:44 this morning, a healthy baby boy named Angus S. McDougall took his first breath. We received a picture shortly thereafter on Shirl's phone, but have not yet gotten one available for posting. Suffice it to say, Angus is a dark-haired, blue-eyed baby boy!
His parents, Caroline and Jesse, have now spent thirty-five hours at the hospital in Bennington, Vermont, and are both tired, and happy. Well done, Cally! Congratulations, Jesse, on your new fatherhood. May yours be as fine and has been mine. (It has been a great joy.)
Angus is your blogger's fourth grandchild, joining Christal's Hannah, Brian's Moses, and Jamie's Brynn in the new generation of the Clan McDougall in America. Welcome, laddie! We hope soon to welcome your first visit to your paternal grandparents, here in New Hampshire.
