She's Finally Here!

My first grandchild has finally arrived! I waited 35 years for my daughter to give birth and forty-one hours for the the baby to appear. Whew! But it was all worth it! Here's what happened.

Miss E.C.H. caused quite a stir last week. About 5 a.m., Thursday, August 4, 2016, Mommy knew she should go to the hospital.

Forty-one hours later, at 1 a.m. Saturday, Elodie was born by Caesarean. We all

cheered – especially Mommy.

Elodie’s first words to us were “Where’s the party?”

Daddy, exhausted but elated, decided to cuddle his new little girl.

Then Elodie had to go for a snooze after the nurses wrapped her up like a little papoose.

When she woke up, Elodie said, “S’up, girlfriends!”

And, "Now that this birthing nonsense is over with, let's get organized. I'll lead."
