Topic of the Week: The Cranky Family Grows Again

I’m excited to announce that yesterday, Molly joined the Cranky family. She weighed in at 7 lbs 3 oz (for those who keep track of those kind of things), and she was 19 1/4 inches long. Everyone is doing well.

  33. Congratulations! You guys aren’t messing around. I’ve had #1 for much longer than you (mine is 4) and am still two months away from #2 joining our family. Looking forward to some tips for traveling with two little ones!

  34. On behalf of the men and women at the Long Beach Airport, I would like to extend or congratulations on the new addition to your family. We are all very happy for you.

  35. Congratulations and best wishes between now and 2031 when she finishes high school. That sounds like a long way down the road but it will fly by for mom and dad. You will have, I pray, lots of wonderful experiences between now and then. Good luck and enjoy.
