I got the call that her water broke at 3:00, so I left at 3:30 to head up to Salt Lake.
Jonathan called me at 4:15 to say Laura was ready to push.
Thank goodness there were not any police as I was doing a “little” speeding.
Laura did a wonderful job with her natural childbirth.
So my little grandson weighs 7 lb 2 oz, and is 21 inches long.

I think they will pick a name tonight.
He has a little fluid in his lungs so he is in the special care unit for awhile.

A new bassinet for Baby Miller

When Mark was home, he got the children’s bassinet out of the attic.

I knew I would have to replace the plastic lining.

20130509-175902.jpg
Also figured a fresh coat of white paint would really make a difference.

20130509-175943.jpg
I am so pleased with the final product. I used quilted cotton fabric for the lining.

Baby Miller will have a place to sleep when he comes for a visit.

Baby books

Today when I was looking at baby clothes, I found all these old books. Laura and Trish can divide them up.

The Canadian Mother and Child was my mother’s book when I was born, so it is a few years old.
Now she can learn how to fold a diaper :)

Jennifer’s baby shower

On Saturday Laura, Trish and I went to Jennifer’s baby shower.
The cupcakes were amazing.

20130421-220813.jpg
This one was almost too cute to eat.

Laura became friends with Jennifer when we moved here from Kentucky when she was in 8th grade. It is so nice that they are both expecting sons within a couple weeks of each other.
Laura is also wearing the jumper I wore when I was pregnant.

We had a great time visiting at the shower.

More snakes

Last night Stanton (a childhood friend of Matt) came by for a visit and gave Laura a snake bank for her son.

It is so cute and a perfect gift for the year of the snake.

20130420-100742.jpg
It was great to visit with Stanton and wish him well on getting his MBA at Notre Dame. I gave him a Saint Christopher medal for a safe journey.

Laura’s baby shower

We all had a great day on Saturday for Laura’s baby shower.
The table was decorated beautifully.

Michelle made some very cute jungle cupcakes, elephant, monkey, lion

20130415-132149.jpg
She received this unique gift dressed as a baby.

20130415-132330.jpg
It is the year of the snake in China and Mongolia, so I made her a snake quilt.

20130415-132425.jpg
I also made a nice soft giraffe quilt. I quilted the giraffes in yellow thread.
Mark gave a cashmere giraffe hoodie for his grandson.

I am just so happy to be here with Laura.

Thanks again to Trish.

Michelle made a very cute frame for Laura.

Now it is time to decorate the room, and put away all the gifts.
Laura is happy to be pregnant along with Jennifer and Jana who were bridesmaids in her wedding party, and they are all due in May.

Laura wearing my maternity dress

Happy Easter to everyone. I had the best one ever, as Laura spent the night with us, and then came to church with Mark and I.
She wore the maternity dress that I wore when I was expecting Patricia.

Laura is 33 weeks in her pregnancy.

20130331-221230.jpg
She looks and feels great.

Maternity clothes

It has been so much fun looking at the few maternity clothes that I saved from my pregnancies, and really special to see Laura wearing my sweater and jeans.
In the picture I am pregnant with Patricia and holding my nephew Jason.
