And now for something a little different...

This bit of productivity comes, not from my flourishing palms, but is none-the-less something to show off.

Our grandson, Tay, arrived Monday, September 28 at 11:57 p.m. (Sydney, Australia time), after DD and SIL endured 27 hours of labor ending with an emergency C-section. God's hands were surely protecting them.
3.26 kg, 48 cm
7 pounds 3 ounces, 18.5 inches
During DD's labor, I took my Macbook along with me wherever I went in the house, even sleeping with it next to me Sunday night to remain in touch with our SIL. Technology is wonderful, but I already know how difficult it is to be a half a world away. I'd have given anything to be at DD's side following his birth, let alone get to welcome that sweet bub in person

Pictures like these, and hopefully some Skype videocam calls once they get home from the hospital, will have to suffice until I can be there myself, October 23.

In the meantime, I hope you won't mind this Nana's flaunt.

  1. Congrats, nana. I wish I could stowaway in your suitcase on the 23rd...he might even be worth missing the show for!

  2. Congratulations Nana, my gosh we do have a lot in common don't we. I'm sure the time will go quickly and you'll soon be rocking that gift from God in your arms. Such a lovely time of the year to be going, not too hot and past the horrible cold weather.
