Welcome to my blog -- Jones Family Matters. Over time, I hope to post stories, pictures, etc. from all of my family lines. The initial posts will be about the Joneses, but I've researched my German, Irish and English roots, too. Surnames I've investigated include: Jones, Ryan, von der Heide, Cronin, Probert, Dailey, Wainright, Reed and Hellmann. I've spent the past year researching my colonial ancestors and hope to share what I've learned throughout 2016.
Today at 6:04 AM my daughter, Liz, and her husband, Roland,welcomed their second son into this world. It was quite a surprise to all of us because she was only 32 weeks into her pregnancy. She went to the hospital from work yesterday hoping that the contractions she was experiencing could be stopped. After a few hours, it became apparent that we were going to have a baby.
Andrew Zoltan Varga
So let me introduce you to my second grandson, Andrew. He was doing well enough at birth for his father to be able to take this picture within the first couple of minutes after his birth. He weighed 4 pounds, 13.6 ounces and was about 16 1/2 inches long. He was able to breathe on his own from the very beginning. The nurse assigned to him initially thought that his due date had been miscalculated as he was doing so well for a 32-week baby.
Liz and Andrew
So we are feeling very blessed. Hopefully, Andrew will continue to grow stronger and be able to join his Mom, Dad and big brother, Ian, at home.
