A New Grandbaby!

My new grandbaby was born on December 19th.... just in time for Christmas. The psychic was wrong, and the ultrasound was right.... it's a BOY. My daughter had a false alarm two days earlier which had us at the hospital until 3 am. This day she woke up having contractions again, and she thought it must be another false alarm, so she kept waiting, and waiting. Finally after several phone conversations I told her to call her husband at work, and I decided to go over and see how she was doing. When I arrived I asked her how far apart the contractions were, and her reply was "I don't feel like timing them... it hurts too much" What???? Once hubby, and I started timing them we realized they were only two minutes apart, so rushed her to the hospital.
Once we arrived at the hospital they were literally running to get her to her room before the baby was born. No time for an epidural... he was ready to come! Braeden Allen was born at 4:40 pm weighing 9 lbs 4 0z, and was 21 inches long
Mother, and baby are doing great. I have been staying at my daughter and son in laws home to help out... but honestly haven't been much help at all since all of us are so sleep deprived! Ashleigh is adjusting to becoming a big sister, and really seems to be enjoying her new baby brother... except for the few times she woke up from his cries for the 2 am feeding, and couldn't go back to sleep!
Hopefully all will settle down soon, and little Braeden will sleep a bit more.

Hi Diana! I'm so happy you wrote to let me know your newest little precious has arrived!! So glad that he & his mommy are both doing great.

Braeden is adorable & I just love his name! That pic of his mommy kissing him is so sweet. And my fav is the one of big sis looking in his bassinet.

We've had several false alarms, too. My daughter will be induced Jan. 12th if nothing else happens before then!

Big TX Hugs,
