Great Nephew (Odd Shot Below)

I got a call at 2:22 (according to my cell phone) to tell me that my niece was on her way to the birthing center. She was obviously in great need of being there from the sound of things. I told them to call me when they got there.

About ten minutes later I got another call: the baby was born.....there at home. The baby had just been born and was on the bed. I asked if they had cleared his mouth and nose, they had and baby Daniel had cried for them. The midwife they were using was on her way, after the event.

I called my sister, her mom in Kansas with the news, and we discussed the whole thing thoroughly. As we were talking the new mom called her mom. I hung up.

The new Granni and I talked again. Then I called the new mom back, the mid wife was there, all was well, the baby was eating. The midwife is staying there for a couple of hours to monitor.

All the excitement was over by 3:30. I couldn't get back to sleep, so got up to do my odd shot and this.

If this all seems choppy and disjointed, that is how I feel right now!

I'll be taking a half day from school, picking Ethan up early, and heading off to see them. I have strict instructions to take lots of pictures for Granni! She will be able to view all the pictures I take tonight on the Kodak site we use.
