Welcome to the Planet: Jonathan Khalil Edwards!

Jonathan Khalil Edwards made his first appearance on Earth a little after 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday, October 10, 2006, in Oxnard, California. He is the son of Tamila and Jamal Edwards of Ventura, California. Tamila is the daughter of Donna and Terry Manson of El Paso, Texas. Jonathan arrives just one day after the 11th birthday of his cousin, Dallas Miller Manson, son of David and Creola Manson of San Jose, California.

Mother, father, baby (4 pounds, 13 ounces) and grandparents are all doing well in Ventura County tonight. The appropriate genealogical charts have been updated!

Assuming that Tamila is your daughter (is that right?) - CONGRATULATIONS, Grandpa!!!

Each one is so special. There is so much hope for the little one. And so much work for mom and dad - but well worth it. Grandmas and grandpas just get to smile and laugh and make funny faces at them, and beam with pride, knowing that life is good.

Take care -- Randy

I guess I should understand the post before putting my fingers in motion...I didn't even see the names of Tamila's parents there.

I won't assume anything now...what is your relationship to young Jonathan? All my other comments are pertinent, however!

Cheers -- Randy

Tamila is my niece. And what you said of grandparents is true of uncles, too! By the way, first-time great-grandparents Harold and Lillian Manson in San Jose are thrilled!
