Introducing the newest member of our family, making her debut at 9:43am eastern time, Thursday, May 27, 2010. This sweet girl arrived three weeks early and weighed in at 4 pounds, 11 ounces but she's doing just great-- So are her precious mommy, my niece Queen M, and her handsome Daddy.
This is the first baby in a new generation for our family and I'll tell you-- times have sure change since Queen M was born!
In 26 short years, we've gone from a limited number of family being allowed to pace in the hospital waiting room during labor-- with our Instamatic camera in hand (you know, the kind that used actual film), to grandparents in the delivery room with digital and video cameras emailing the rest of the family minute by minute coverage of the grand arrival.
And that doesn't include the gadget I used to curse to high heaven-- The Blackberry. I got text messages all night long-- From the mother-to-be who was in labor!!!
It was really something-- I'm 2500 miles away and it was just like being right there! Well almost. I haven't gotten to hold our little bundle of joy or inhale that intoxicating "new baby smell" yet, but next month I'll be on a plane back home to get my fill of sweetness.
Queen M is the oldest daughter of my Big Sister which makes me a Great Aunt. How about that!
What a joyful day.
