My flight to Ottawa went very smoothly and a very pregnant wobbly Christine picked me up at the airport yesterday morning with little James in tow.

 This morning I was awakened by my son in law at 5:30 am to tell me that he was taking Christine to the hospital. She had gotten up for a snack and as she sat down on her chair, her water broke. It's quite a long drive to the hospital and the doctor was called. On arrival, Christine was examined and it was  determined that she was in labor and 5 minutes before the doctor arrived the baby was born on the bed. Two push and he was skyrocketed out of the warmth into a cool room. He was born at 7:21 am.

Baby brother weighs 8lb 2 oz and was 2 weeks and 2 days early. Both mother and baby are doing well.

I think that he looks beautiful even though he wouldn't pose for the camera.

Daddy is happy that everything went so fast and well.

James was having a little adjustment to do but he came around rather quickly.

 At first he was upset at his mommy and didn't wanted to look at the baby but before long he shared some soup with mommy and even said Bye bye baby brother as we were leaving.

James and I have bonded almost instantly and I'm having a lot of fun with him.

I'm off to bed and probably will not have much time to blogg. Maybe I'll manage a few comments so please bear with me. Being a nanny at my age is challenging but I'm getting her done.   lol...

I'm off to catch up on my Zzzs.
