Wowsers! What an eventful day it has been. Daughter-in-law Traci was admitted to the hospital yesterday so that her labor could be induced. Around eight-thirty this morning her water broke, and things seemed to be progressing well. At noon we all received a text message that Traci was 6 cm dilated and we excitedly thought Alivia would be here within a few hours. Alivia however had other plans, at twelve-thirty we received a text message that Traci was being rushed off for an emergency c-section. Dave and I left for the hospital about twenty minutes later and almost immediately received a picture text of a beautiful healthy looking little girl, Baby Alivia was finally here. I am so happy to report that Traci is doing very well and is absolutely in love with her new little girl and Matt is pleased as punch! Alivia weighed in at 6 lbs, 8 ozs and is 20 1/2 inches long. Here are some pictures from earlier today.
