Proof that Life Goes On...

Vacation was great but we can get to that later...The day we were to check out I got the call that my eldest was at the hospital preparing to give birth. We threw our shit in the car and blazed home at about 90 miles per hour. I got there with about an hour to spare. 

She handled it like a trooper and only had to push through 5 contractions. No hems, no tearing. Just a perfect baby boy. His cord was wrapped around his neck and was cut before he could be delivered.

Malakhi Alexander was born after a Full Moon on Sunday, 9/11 at 1:36pm. 
He was 19.5 inches long and weighed in at 6.1lbs.

Now we wait. He did not manage to pass his hearing test today due to fluid in his right ear and is not eating well. He gets 2 more tries before we insert a feeding tube. His new Mommy is frustrated, worried and praying as am I. I'm sure he'll be fine but you always want them to get the hang of things right away. 
I was there when he came into the word and I photographed his 1st bath for my daughter since she could not yet walk. She is doing well and by morning I plan to be able to say the same for him.

Now I am a Grandmother. 


  1. Congrats G-ma!
