A New Grand Daughter Arrives!

January 10, 2010

Well, after all of the waiting, and a sleepless Friday night, our daughter gave birth to a beautiful baby girl who arrived weighing 6 pounds 10 ounces and 20 inches long! Checked out carefully and pronounced perfect, the little one was promptly introduced to her family.

Mother headed to the hospital Friday morning (lots of snow, schools closed) and entered the hospital to deliver this new little bundle of joy. Everything moved along quickly with a number calls to Grandpa and I, but by midnight still no grand daughter!

Its 5:30am and the phone rings after tossing and turning all night, expectations high but STILL no grand daughter! She was taking her good old time, but around 7:00am finally she decided it was time and arrived, helped along by the doctors.

So, grab the camera, head out the door and on to the hospital. No time for video, just some still shots as mother, father and daughter are exhausted. Just enough time for me to quickly hold the new arrival, then into waiting Grandpa’s arms, camera out, flash attached, picture taken:

Everyone is healthy and safe, and soon back to the hospital for more visiting and – of course – more photographs. Best of all I have a new subject to photograph, and I can hardly wait!
