I'm so excited. Call from daughter early this morning that she's in labor.
She's in Montana and I'm in California. I bought airline ticket to fly out on the 15th as she wasn't due until the 22nd.
Just can't make it out today. The airlines wants 600 more $$. ugh !! and I haven't got my ticket to come home yet.

She is doing fine, dilalated to 4 cm. Had an epidural. Thank goodness her husband is home this week, as he is in the Air Force and is gone alot. He is going to leave the phone on when it's time so I can hear.
Thanks for listening, I just had to talk to someone.
I made him his hospital quilt to come home in, but now guess he has to use it later.

Grandma needs a nap already.!!

I'm so excited for you. Is this your first? My 7th grandchild was born on Sunday, May 5th.

Go quilt something fun to keep relaxed. It could be a long day :-)

How exciting for you.
My daughter had her 1st baby last July and she lives 120 miles away from me so I was kept in touch by phone. I actually think I had the baby for her !!!
Its such a joy having Grandchildren, My Dad used to tell me that Grandparents are for ruining and Parents are for ruling, I have to say I totally agree with that !
Hope you don't have too long to wait for the arrival

Congraulations on your new one too. I would love to go quilt, but I put everything away yesterday getting ready to leave on the 15th.

Congrats on the new grand baby. They are truly a joy. I was there for the birth of both of my GD's. Cut the cord on the first one. Would have been in for GS too, but his dad didn't want me in the room. But was right outside the door. Have a wonderful granny visit when you get to be there.

47057What a long day !! Yes I couldn't be there for the birth, but they had the phone on and it was really hard listening to my daughter in pain. I'm not sure if I could have made it though that. My two other daughters both had c-sections, so couldn't be there.
Boy he came out screaming, what a relief that was.
He's perfect and mama is doing great.
Thanks for letting me share !!

Thank you everyone for all the nice comments and well wishes. I can't wait to get there on Wednesday and see and hold him and hug my daughter and son in law. Maybe me not being there from the very start was a good thing. See, the newnest well be worn off and I'll get to love on him more. (just a thought) lol

So glad your grandson has been born and that you will soon be holding him in person. Oh how tiny they are when first born.

Ah, Grandkids are such a joy. Our 2nd great grand child is due next week, no idea if it is a boy or girl so the wait seems even longer.
