Let me start with mom and baby are doing wonderful. Yesterday did not go as planned. Mom was scheduled for a C section at 2:30, I arrived at 2. My son is no where to be found. Turns out he's stuck at work his boss has not made it there to let him go. Well there was an emergency with another patient so our baby got pushed back two hours. Worked out great son got to hospital. He's there and there is a second emergency so we are bumped again. Let me add a little info on my son here, he HATES hospitals. He leaves to go get food, I'm not sure he will come back. Two hours later he comes back (yippee!). OMG we get moved again for another emergency. So at 7:45 they are talking about moving the c section to tomorrow. So my sons girl friend has had no food or drink all day and they want to move her to tomorrow's schedule. Her face, my son's face ohhhh I was just about to go into mama bear mode when a nurse said you have to do her today they have all been here all day. Dr agrees. Just as they give her the block I here talk there is another emergency. Since the block was already given they have to proceed with my granddaughter's delivery. So Irie Rae 6lbs 4oz 19 1/4inchs came into the world some time around 8:30pm. And she is perfect. 70709.

I heard the dr had a total of 10 c sections yesterday with all the emergencies.

She was well worth the wait; congratulations! I am sure everyone was exhausted by the time she finally arrived. Sounds like the poor doctor had an extraordinary day too. So happy that all is well..

Congratulations!!! What a cutie! I remember when my oldest grandboy was born. My daughters uterus is heart shaped and they told her to wait till labor started then go straight in and she would be an 'emergency'. Well the woman who had hers scheduled that day at that time, was not a happy camper when she got bumped out of line. Oh, the words that were flowing from her room!

Congratulations! :-)

What a beautiful little girl! So glad it all worked out well in the end. How do you pronounce her first name?

It's a Jamaican word meaning happy and content. It sounds like Ireeeeee hope that makes since.

She's a beauty, Grandma! Love that smile!

It's a Jamaican word meaning happy and content. It sounds like Ireeeeee hope that makes since.

So that's a long "i" sound - like "eye", not like "ear" - right? I think I've heard the word a time or two from some Jamaican friends back home (in NJ, not Jamaica lol).

Beautiful name for a beautiful little girl! Congrats to you and the family. I'm sure she will not lack in beautiful quilts to snuggle up in!

She is beautiful! I am sure that Dr. Was as tired as all the new Mom's - that's a lot of babies! Wishing you all well and hope everyone is home soon.
