Welcome to the world, Cameron!

Yes, our grandson Cameron entered the world at 2:49pm, Friday April 1st. Seven pounds, nine ounces. Mom and baby are doing great!

Lindsey and Justin had gone to the hospital around 2:30am in the morning, and being her first baby the labor can take a long time. Everything went smoothly though, and we were waiting back at the apartment. Finally got a phone call around 3:30pm telling us the great news!

But we had a vet appointment at 5:00pm, so we decided to go to that before visiting the hospital. We had a consultation with the vet, just to check Whiskey’s heart and breathing again. The raspy sounds coming from her heart are gone, so that is good news. But her coughing hasn’t totally disappeared yet. We’re going to keep her on the same medication for the weekend and go back and check again on Monday afternoon. Her energy level seems to come and go…when we got back to the apartment she went racing up the stairs like there was nothing wrong with her! And her appetite is back, so that’s good news too.

The we went to visit Lindsey, Justin, and Cameron. What a good looking kid! I know we’re slightly (only slightly?) biased, but we think Lindsey and Justin did a great job!

Cameron...about 4 hours old!

Grandma and grandson

It's been MANY years since I held a baby this small!

Funny face, Cameron!

  1. Congratuations to all on Cameron's arrival. Since I'm an "April Fool baby" also, I can say with some certainty that he will probably receive many, many comments/jokes (some very 'unfunny') about his birthday through the years. My standard answer has become "I'm an April Fool. Do you know what kind you are?" & most adults at least realize how unkind it is to make fun of anyone's (out of our control) birthday. It's sort of fun tho to realize many people are also celebrating your birthday with you.

  17. Lindsey's training in the food services industry sure served her well. She knew just how long to bake that "little bun in the oven". Great job, Lindsey! You and Justin made one sweet little boy! Congrats to you, Ruth and Kevin. Can't even imagine how thrilled you both must be! We are looking forward to meeting your grandson when we get back to Nova Scotia. In the meantime, have lots of fun together.
