Grandbaby Number Four Arrived Today !!!!!!!!

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.

The new family, finally the long awaited day has arrived and Baby Alivia is here and Matt and Traci will now be known as Daddy and Mommy!

Proud new Mommy gazes lovingly at baby.

I think little Alivia is already showing off her personality :)
