I had Chinese for lunch today, and my fortune cookie read: "Good news is on its way."
It didn't take long for that prediction to come true.
A few hours later, at 5:43 p.m., our first grandchild, Claire Ann, entered this world. Mother and daughter are doing well, and Dad survived the ordeal as well.
Tale of the tape: 8 pounds, 5 ounces and 19.5 inches.
Claire will meet Grandma and Grandpa Cooper on Saturday, after which her photo will appear on NewsConference.
