We Have a Baby

Grandson #3 decided not wait for Monday morning and his scheduled c-section. Jill went into labor early this morning and by 6:30 am was on her way to the hospital. He was born at 8:45 am, weighing 7 pounds 13 ounces, and measuring 19 inches long. He'll go by the nickname of Aesa.
Knowing that Jill was a high risk delivery, we're extremely thankful that everything went smoothly. Jill sounds great, and said "it went so fast, compared to last time." 

Later today Celina and Tay, Asa's big sister and brother, will go to the hospital for our first meeting. Until everyone comes home in a few days, I'll be playing mom. But what a blessing it is for me to be so directly involved. Thanks be to God.

  1. Congratulations to everyone. So glad to hear they are both ok.
    I love it when babies declare their own birthday rather than sticking to the schedule,stressful as it is at the time for the parents.

  10. So precious! I'm happy for all of you! You know, I wondered looking at your last post, with your daughter being busy, if it wouldn't be too much longer, (and I bet you did too, huh, Linda?)

  11. Congratulations to the whole family. I bet he will look like Tay! How wonderful to be so blessed with another little angel from God. I hope Linda has a speedy recovery and can get back to feeling well again. But she will have a wonderful mother there to help her!
