A new family member

As rule our family doesn't have big babies but DD has managed it. This is my first grandson and he has no name yet, born in the early hours of Monday morning. Just shy of 10 pounds, he has asian eyes that are very blue and dark hair. His three sisters all look different, both in looks and colouring. My DD is fair with red hair and SIL is blonde.
Here's me with him. Excuse the disheveled appearance, not enough sleep you know.
Thank you for sharing all your good wishes.
