As I have done previously (see post), I am proud to introduce the newest addition to the next generation of our family. Wesley Abram Nipper was born on November 21, 2013, and he was 20.5 inches long and weighed 8 pounds, 7 ounces. He is the seventh “W. A. Nipper” in our family dating back to the mid 1860’s.
Wesley, his mother, Elisabeth, and his father, William, are doing well. Allen and I are also doing fine, and as many of you know, it is great to be grandparents. His big sister, Abigail, seems to be adjusting well to her new brother. Abigail’s Aunt Em (Emilie) and Uncle Well Well (Weldon) were also able to see Wesley soon after he was born.
I am sure we will spoil him just as we have with Abigail. As soon as Elisabeth will let us, we will take Wesley to the woods to see his tree just like we did a few weeks ago with Abigail!
For Christmas, one of his gifts will be the “My Little Corner of the World” book by Beth Burch Smith. The book tells the story of a child as his grandfather teaches him the wonders of trees and what they provide.
If you would like a copy of “My Little Corner of the World,” contact Susan Stutts (email her or 936-632-8733) at the Texas Forestry Association.
Please excuse the bragging, but that is what a proud MamMaw and Big Daddy are supposed to do!
