The hubs and I had been out to dinner with friends the night before.
We had just arrived back home at about 9pm. How do I know it was about 9pm? Because I never stay out past 9.
When we got the call from Jen that they were headed to the hospital.
Months earlier she had invited me to join her, Neal and her Mom in the delivery room. I will forever be grateful to her for that. It was more then I had hoped for.
Grandpa, Uncle Steve and I made the trip to the hospital to be with them.
It was a very long night.....
On the other hand it passed quickly (for me at least) and before I knew it it was dawn.
not the best picture ever it was taken with my cell phone thru a window
I had taken a little break and got up to walk around when I saw the sun coming up and it made me all teary eyed, because I knew this was going to be the day I would get to meet my first Grand Baby.
That was short lived ....it wasn't long before Theresa was receiving a call to come back in the baby was almost here. The nurses were all so very nice and they agreed to let me stay in the room during the delivery as long as I stayed out of the way. (You can bet I hid in the corner and was quiet as a church mouse, for fear someone would kick me out.)
*******Jen gave me permission to take pictures of the delivery. *******
Hi Baby Girl, you are perfect!
It wasn't long before both Grandpas were up at the hospital and we were oooing and ahhhing over the baby. Thankfully Mama and Daddy were good sports about the whole thing and let us all hang out with them in the birthing room the rest of the day!
As soon as we could the next morning we high tailed it back up to the hospital to see the baby.
(oh yeah Neal and Jen too)
The room was full of people just LOVIN' the new family up.
We ordered Pizza and threw a party.
I mean really what better reason to throw a party
then the arrival of a sweet little soul into this world?
Happy 2nd Birthday Girlfriend
You ROCK OUR WORLD
"IT'S A GOOD LIFE"
