    Alrighty then..........Yesterday ( Sunday) was just a normal day, chillin around the house and stuff. My wife and I, well me actually are in the middle of making a nice Sunday dinner, Ham, Mashed Potatoes, etc.......when the phone rings about 6:00.

    Yep, it's Traci, she's at the hospital (remember, they were gonna induce Monday morning at 6:00 AM) Seems her and her husband decided to go out for dinner, they are in the middle of a very nice and expensive meal when........Whammo!! Contractions!!!

    I'm in the middle of mashing the potatoes, so we get that done, get the Ham out of the oven and beat feet over to the hospital. This is what we find.......

    [​IMG]

    It's now about 7:00 PM and EVERYBODY starts coming in.....His Mom and Dad, Brother and his Wife and Daughter, Traci's Mom and her boyfriend , a couple of Traci's friends, Traci's sister (No, not Weasel Spawn....She's back in New Orleans.) A couple of Hubby's Aunts and me and my wife......Freekin zoo :-X

    So we're all hanging around in her room, when the nurse finally has had enough of us and makes us go to the waiting room.........and we wait.....and wait..........and wait.

    Finally at 11:00 PM we get a call from Kelly (Traci's Husband.) She's moving forward, contractions about a minute and a half apart.........and we wait.........and wait and wait.

    At 11:45 we get another call.....She's pushing! At 11:50 another call.......She's here!!!!

    3 pushes and she delivers a 6 lb 14 oz 19" long baby girl !!!!

    And we wait......and wait.........and wait. It's 2 AM and they finally let us into Traci's room.......but no baby............she's in the nursery and it will be another hour or two before I get to meet my Grand Daughter

    3:00 AM .......Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you.....

    [size=14pt]Ella!![/size]

    Damn! am I stoked!! She's perfect!! I got up a 6:30, showered and soon to be off to the hospital. 3 hours sleep, but well worth the wait! BTW.........Mom and Baby are doing fine. I'm now officially......A GRANDPA!! [​IMG]

    Film at 11:00 ;)

    Just remember Weas..... she's not an SG. But by that grip you have there, it looks like all the TLC that it needs!. 8)

    Hope she gets well soon! :coolsmiley:

    That's too bad weas, Im sure she'll be well soon.

    I had jaundice when I was 10, and missed a few weeks of school, including recorder class.

    When I went back, they said I'd missed too much, and kicked me out, hence I never finished learning to read music.
