Bob's new grand daughter (Marin Rose) arrived this evening at about 6pm, six days earlier than her due date. She weighed 7 lbs 4oz and is 19 inches long. She has a full head of dark hair but I wasn't able to get any pictures until after they put the little cap on her.
By the time we got across town to the hospital, she was in the process of coming into the world. So we waited in the hall just outside the door, until she and her mama were fixed up and ready for company. She didn't cry like most baby's do, just fussed a little when they were doing her foot prints. After that she was handed to her daddy and then to her mama, she opened up her little eyes and looked all around, sucking on her first two fingers. We stayed for just a little while and then left, so she could have her first nursing.
June was having just slight contractions this morning, and when she went in for her normal doctors appointment, the doctor said it looked like the baby could come soon but that she need to do some walking so the contractions would be harder and longer. So her husband and her mom, took her down to the waterfront and they walked and walked and walked. Then it was back to the doctor's office for another check up and then directly across the street to the hospital. Marin was born within 2 hours after June was admitted. Now that's the way to have a baby !!!
When we got to the hospital, Bob called his daughter Hope in California to let her know that Marin was on her way, then he called her again and let her know all the details. Once I got home I emailed pictures, so the family in Pasadena can get a glimpse of this new little family member.
Welcome to the world precious little Marin Rose, may you have a long and happy life.
