Finn Levi Steinhoff 04/24/2015

Carly and Finn Steinhoff 04-24-2015I got an email from Son Adam at 8:33 a.m. Friday: “We are at the hospital.”

That was followed by a Facebook announcement from Carly Steinhoff: “We would like to introduce Finn Levi Steinhoff. Born at 12:59 p.m., 7 lbs 9 oz, 20″. {Swoon}”

Gosh, those things are tiny

2015-04-24 Adam and Finn Steinhoff 1You forget how small those babies are (Carly might differ). It doesn’t take long for them to grow up, though. Sarah Steinhoff posted a photo that shows that Wife Lila is now shorter than Grandson Malcolm.

We’re an “L” of a family

Graham - Malcolm - Elliot 04-24-2015Through accident and design, we are a family with lots of L middle names. My brothers and I are Kenneth Lee, David Louis and Mark Lynn.

Our boys are Matthew Louis and Adam Lynn. The grandsons are Malcolm Lee, Graham Louis, Elliot Lane and, now, Finn Levi.

Finn’s brothers Graham and Elliot (left and right) and Cousin Malcolm in the middle (isn’t there a TV show by that name) celebrate Birthday Zero.

I’m in Cape, so it’ll be awhile before I meet Finn in person, but I was able to break the news to Mother that she had another great-grandson. That almost made up for it.

  1. April 24 is a popular day to be born into our family. It is also my daughter Sarah’s Birthday as well as my grand daughter Jensen’s birthday. Welcome to the family, Finn.

  2. Congrats. on your new grandson. Since this is about your family maybe. Is Vera Steinhoff with whom I graduated from CHS in 1947 related to you? If so is she still living and where?

  3. Ken,
    What am I doing wrong when I can only see comment #1? I’ve refreshed the browser but I’m on my Samsung Note. Is being on my cell possibly the problem?

    1. Dorothy,

      I’d love to say you are doing something wrong, but the problem is somewhere between the site and your browser. On a PC, it’s usually pretty easy: you just press Ctrl-F5 and that flushes the browser cache (or wakes up the hamster. I get those things confused).

      Since more and more people are reading the blog on portable devices, I guess I’m going to have to figure out how to do it on phones and tablets.
