Oh, happy day---I'm a grandma again!!!:hatparty:
My little girl called about an hour ago to tell me that Bryan William was born at 2:18 PM after about seven hours of induced labor. He is 8 lb., 4 oz., 20 1/2 inches long, alert, healthy, and has a full head of hair.........my SIL's going to E-mail me some piccys tomorrow. (All I know is, he's got to be beautiful if his parents are any indication!!) Melly said the whole thing was really easy---she had an epidural, and she did so well that she was up and out of bed only an hour after the birth. In fact, she felt so good she went to the bathroom by herself, for which she said her nurse scolded her
(I concurred with her nurse---I've seen more than one new mom 'wilt' the first time OOB.)
Both of the new parents are tickled pink with their little one, and of course we're all thrilled here! My dh finally learned the secret of the baby's name, which I've known for months---he's named after both his father AND his grandfather, which pleased him so much he got tears in his eyes. In the meantime, we're thanking God everything went so well and that our new grandson is so big and healthy; Amanda finally gets to be an aunt; and suddenly the world looks a little bit brighter and filled with a LOT more love.
Welcome, Bryan William!!! I LOVE YOU!!!!!!
