We spent the week preparing freezer meals, catching up on laundry and other similar activities. We read with grandchildren and helped with special school projects.
At last, our wake up call came at 4:30 AM as they decided to go to the hospital after a couple of hours of serious contractions. Just before 7 AM, little Lucy Rebecca made her way into the world.
She was soon the recipient of a fancy hat and matching socks. Her parents chose pink because they were sure that would be popular with the big sisters who were waiting with us at home.
After church, we all wanted to go meet little Lucy for the first time. Her older siblings were very anxious to see and hold her!
Mother and baby were doing well and were bored at the hospital, so arrived back home around lunch time the next day. Lucy was great entertainment and the center of attention for the rest of the day!
It is hard to believe that we are lucky enough to have 22 grandchildren.
