I have a new Grandbaby!

Katelyn Rebekah was born at 7:57 pm last evening, weighing in at 7 pounds and 2 ounces. She was 19 3/4 inches long with lots of dark hair.

Mom and baby are doing well and Praise the Lord He worked everything out around the birth. My daughter lives an hour and a half from the birthing center with nothing between her house but swamp and farmland. There is no maternity unit in the hospital in her town so she had to travel the distance to the birthing center.

Because she had quick labors with her other 4 kiddos, the midwife was concerned about the long commute. Alllissa found out that if she went into labor, she could notify the state police office who would gladly provide an escort complete with flashing lights and sirens. What fun!

But, thankfully, she didn't have to cause a scene because the baby was born at the birthing center following her visit yesterday morning. The midwife wisely had her stay for a few extra hours and little Katie cooperated.

So welcome to this world Katie! I'm so glad you're here safe and sound. Can;t wait to see you when we come to visit in a few weeks.

I'll be sure to take lots of pictures then and share them with all my online friends!
