New Great Niece

Our Niece Megan gave birth yesterday to Vivian Irene, my other baby brother and she who sees robins first now have thirteen grands.  When I meet her I will take a photo so you can see what a pretty little thing she is. She weighed 9 pounds and 8 ounces.

She joins her two big brothers (two years and four years old) so that will be a busy family!  My other baby brother, Jody stopped by to show me the photos of her….and to tell us that the baby started coming real fast on the way to the hospital…they had to call 911 and be diverted to a different hospital complete with police escort with paramedics and six nurses waiting…it was a bit of excitement in Perham Minnesota early Sunday morning.  There was a Doctor in the ER that was not real thrilled about delivering a baby when the OB Doc showed up. Twenty minutes after arriving Vivian was born.  Many of the little hospitals in Minnesota do not have Labor and Delivery rooms anymore.  They were headed for a hospital 55 miles away and ended up in a brand new hospital 35 miles from their home with labor and delivery facilities.  Thankfully mother and baby are fine and Frank didn’t have to deliver the baby along the side of the road!

Vivian is named after her Mother, her Grandmother and her Great Grandmother…they all share the middle name Irene.

I am excited to meet her!

  2. Congratulations to all! Big baby...I had one 9lbs 10 oz. I had quit smoking because of the baby as they said smoking would lower the birth weight....after delivery I wished I had kept smoking! It was my son Benjamin and he grew up to be the skinniest and tallest in the family...go figure. I wish all a life of health and happiness!

  3. That's wonderful news - new life is a marvellous thing. Congratulations and best wishes all round. The convoy must have made quite a site when it arrived at the hospital; you wouldn't get that kind of attention in the UK!

  9. Births are exciting enough but when you through in the drama of things unexpected it gets very exciting.

  15. Congratulations to all! My middle name is Irene, and I passed it down to my daughter, who named her daughter, my granddaughter, Irene as her first name.

  16. What a long trip to have to make, right at the point of delivering a baby! Glad Vivian made a successful entry--although I suspect that story will become part of her parents' repertoire for years to come ;)

  17. Quite the story! My second was the same weight, am glad he wasn't my first! One of my great nieces was born on the side of the road in their van. My niece is a nurse who delivers babies! I guess she thought she had more time....;-) I like how the old names are making a comeback.
