This morning at 6:40 a.m. I received a phone call from my brother telling me that their baby was just born. A boy. It’s the first grandchild on both sides. Also, I’m an aunt for the very first time.
The whole family is so thrilled and excited. I walked around giddy and smiling all day long.
-The delivery was as perfect as one could ask for.
-We discussed nicknames. His initials are D.R.W. With the D and R it’s like Dr., my sister and Matt were saying it would be cute to call him Doc. My dad said that his father’s childhood nickname was also Doc.
-My dad was recalling the day I was born, he left the hospital and it was a foggy morning. Well, today was also a very foggy morning.
-I went over to my brother and SILs to take their dog out for a walk. When I was leaving I noticed a bright red cardinal fly right in front of me and land in the neighbor’s tree. I always like to think cardinals are a good luck sign.
I’m so happy for my brother and SIL, and I can’t wait to spend time with this new little person, watch him grow and see who he becomes.
