Yesterday we were blessed to welcome a new little granddaughter into our hearts. Hannah arrived at 10:37 a.m. She weighed in at 6 lbs. 4 oz. and is 19 inches long. Mom and Hannah are both doing well. As you can tell, she is beautiful!
We (Dan, Erin, Katie, Aunt Judy, and myself) arrived at the hospital yesterday morning around 8:30 and were able to spend a little time with Amy and Chris before they took Amy to surgery.
Katie practiced being a “big sister.” It was 4:00 p.m. before we got to go to Amy’s room and see the baby, so it was a looooong day. Katie was terrific, although a little overwhelmed by the hospital and what was going on.
She and Grandpa passed the time until we had news by walking around and looking out the windows.
I don’t know what is going on here, and I’m not sure I like it.
We have a new baby! Notice the “big sister” sticker on Katie. She was more interested in Grammy’s watch.
Katie hamming it up for the camera. This is what she does when you tell her to “smile pretty.” Of course, we all laugh so she continues to do it.
Finally…at about 4:00 we got to see our new little girl. There was the biggest mix-up with the baby. Amy had a c-section at 10:37. They then took her to recovery on the 5th floor where she stayed until almost 4:00. They took the baby to the 6th floor nursery (where they kept the blinds closed and wouldn’t let the grandparents see in even though we asked politely). So we have no pictures of her being weighed and measured, etc. Grammy was not such a happy camper. When Amy got to her room we all went in to see her and they still did not bring the baby. Every minute that passed I was getting less and less happy. We were all tired and did not want to leave without seeing Hannah. Chris finally went to the nursery and told them that he wanted his baby. She was worth the wait!
The proud grandparents…
Who are these women and what are they doing to me? Give me a break…
Mommy and daughter doing well…
