meeting Baby Kieron

I was still at the computer
having just finished paying the bills 
when she called.

Some women talk about how hard it is 
to watch your daughter go through labor.

I got to be at the hospital
when my mom had my youngest brother.
I guess I was about 14.
In my opinion,
watching your momma labor
is much harder.

Isn't she such a pretty laboring momma??

Lana labors well;
I'm sure that makes it easier on me.
I also think that it's in part due to the fact
that some of my own babies
are still babies.
The prize
is still fresh in my memory.
(never mind that I didn't get to labor with the last four...)

It helps, too, that
Shelley is an amazing midwife.

When Lana started wearing out
and told us she just couldn't do it;
we told her she could.
And she believed us.
And she did it.

Kieron Tyler      02-28-2011    8 lbs 3 oz      19 3/4 inches long  

I was positioned in the pool with Lana & Shelley
to catch the baby;
but that didn't happen - it went rather fast there in the end.
It was all good, though;
I got to wrap his first blanket around him
before I passed him off to his momma
surrounded by love.

Welcome to the world, Kieron!!

You are loved!!
