The Steinhoff Family tends to make a big production out of everything, which should have been evident from the Christmas photos I posted.
I was looking in my closet and found the baby scrapbook my parents had put together. There’s a treasure trove of stuff in it that I had long forgotten.
When it came time to announce my impending arrival, my folks presented maternal grandmother-to-be, Elsie Welch, a series of nine envelopes, ending with the one at the top of the page.
Operating on “ish” time
There was one slight error. They were predicting that I would arrive on April 17, which would have been Dad’s birthday. You note that they said, “on or about.” Even before I was born, I was operating on “ish” time. And, for the first – and probably only – time in my life, I showed up early to an event. I was born on March 24, not April 17.

Also, by the way, Son Adam and Carly are expecting their first child, and our second grandchild, in February-ish.
