We Have a Baby!

Updated with a photo of the new little.  
What a darling, precious baby girl.  

The Proud Parents

My daughter-in-law's due date was on the 8th. I talked to my son earlier in the day, all was fine but she was having light contractions. Later that night, my son said her contractions were getting a little stronger. I am an early to bed, early to rise person so I took the phone to bed with me, because I knew I would be getting the call.  Sure enough, just before midnight the phone rang and I got to hear the sweet-little-baby-cry the little one was ringing out just after she was born. 


I'm telling ya, we wanted to hop right on an airplane then and there. We've got baby visiting to do! :)

The only downside, and I don't care at all, is that I can't get back to sleep because I'm far too excited over the news! :)


Labor in the hospital was less than an hour and mommy and baby are doing just fine. I'm so happy the delivery was fast, and hurrah we have a new baby girl in the family to love. Wooooooooot! :)
