My new Grandson

Last Monday at 3:00 in the morning the phone rang. It was my 38 week pregnant daughter calling. I had already been awake for a few minutes. "What's up?", I asked. "What do you think!!". I don't know where my head was, what other reason would she be calling me early in the morning. The baby was on the way.

Luckily, my other daughter was spending the night at my house, so the expectant parents loaded up their 1 year old and drove him over so Joc could babysit him and my 3.5 year old daughter, while I rushed to the hospital with them. I consider myself a very lucky woman that they both wanted me in the delivery room again this time.

Little Michael, 8 pounds and 6 ounces, and a full head of dark hair, was born after a fast and smooth labour at 6:50 in the morning.

My other daughter is expecting a baby in June. I can hardly wait!
