I'm a Great-Auntie!!!!!

I am so excited! Our niece gave birth this morning at 2:55 am to a baby boy. I don't have any details yet as my SIL phoned her parents at 3:30 and everyone there was exhausted (it was a very long hard labour).

But the really cool part of it was the fact that our other niece (her older sister) who is a paramedic was able to handle the birth with the doctor there to help and guide her. They live in a rural area where she will more than likely have to handle a birth at some time and here she was able to do it in a more "controlled" setting. Plus she got to see her nephew before her sister did!

So now I can order blue fondant for the shower cake

Thanks, Andy. Funny, my nieces and nephews say that too. But I won't let it go to my head! I just want to get my hands on this baby and spoil the living daylights out of him!

Thanks, everyone!

Wow, Kayelle, you sure have a lot of grands to spoil and love! I have two nephews on my side but they are both in their mid to late 30's and no signs of settling down and having a family. On DH's side we have the two nieces in their late 20's and his other brother has 3 boys but the oldest is 10. So it may be awhile before we have any more.

Thanks, everyone for your wishes. I can't wait until next week when we will take the 45 minute ferry ride to see them.

oh, please say happy birthday to Nancy for me.

I can't wait for pictures either. They are all sleeping now and will be emailing pictures and details when they get up (they being the new Dad, my SIL and other niece).

Just found out they named him Isaiah Laurent. I know Laurent is after his grandfather.
