Lindsey and Justin had a healthy 7 lb 2 oz baby girl this morning in Ottawa! A little sister for Cameron!
First email I checked this morning read.. "The baby's here...call my cell phone!"
Our yet to be named granddaughter...only two hours old!
She wasn't due to arrive until September 6th!
You'll remember that we posted some pictures of our very pregnant daughter on Monday from the wedding she was in on the weekend.
Being this close to her due date, she was well prepared and they brought all the baby things they thought she might need in case the baby arrived early. They live in Nova Scotia, and had done the 16 hour drive to be in the wedding. She had even contacted the Ottawa hospital to confirm that it was no problem with regard to using her Nova Scotia health insurance while in Ontario.
And so she started having contractions in the middle of the night. They were up at Ruth's father's place and had a 45 minute drive into the city. They never made it to the delivery room! She had the baby in the triage area of the emergency room, and the doctor hadn't even made it. Apparently one nurse was on the scene, quickly followed by four more! She said it was a ten minute labor at most and when the doctor did arrive he said it was the first baby he'd seen delivered in the triage area in the 8 years he's worked there!
So, that's our totally exciting news for the day!
