Congratulations Are Due

One of my close girlfriends here just had a baby this week. That is part of the reason I have not been on the blog much. She went into labor on the 18th in the evening and J was delivered by C-section on the afternoon of the 19th weighing at 9lbs 2ozs. He is VERY cute and seems to be a quiet and content baby. I hope that he is an easy baby for them since this is their first.

Right when she was in labor the dad's mom was flying in for a visit, so I ran down to the airport to pick her up and bring her to the hospital. We stayed the night at the hospital and didn't get home again until the next day around 12 noon. At that time, we didn't know how long things were going to take and with jetlag, lack of food and sleeping in 10 minute segments on a waiting room couch, his mother was ready for a rest.

We were able to go to our respective houses for about 3 hours before heading back to the hospital for the delivery. The baby is healthy and happy and all is right in the world (at least for a few minutes). They might be coming home tonight or early tomorrow...and I know they can't wait.

Congratulations guys, you are going to do great!!!!
