Newest member...

of the family was born early this morning. My daughter had a baby boy - 6 lbs. 8 oz.
Mom and baby are doing well. Quick delivery. Sorry, SUPER QUICK delivery is what I meant to say.
Pain at 10:30 p.m.
11:15 p.m. leave for hospital.
11:45 p.m. arrive at hospital.
12: 02 a.m. baby is born.

I am officially now a grandmother!!!!! Names are yet to be chosen. My daughter had said that they were waiting to meet the little one before they decided on a name.

Note: This is the culmination of a first pregnancy where my daughter enjoyed being pregnant, had no morning sickness and everything at home is ready for the little one. BTW, she was 6 lbs. 6 oz. when she was born. Dad is doing well too - he got to cut the umbilical cord.
