Great Aunt Debbie

Sunday, March 03, 2013

My brother Dennis's daughter Ally gave birth late last night to her firstborn a boy. He is so perfect. My brother is overjoyed at being a Grandfathehr. This was a very long labor as Ally started at 6 am and it was long and drawn out all day yesterday. Ally's husband is deployed in Bahrain until June. But thanks to the wonders of Technology he got to watch and coach his wife through the whole thing viaa Skype. Ally's mom was her personal coach and attended the child birth classes with her.

    Oh how nice Daddy was able to watch. When our first born was about to come in to the world, we went to the hospital and DH went up in the elevator and then he was told he was not even allowed to wait. I was devastated but being in labor I had no choice to argue.
My OB-GYN was not too understanding but I joined a women's group called La Leche. I wanted to Breast feed but was told it was a better idea to use the formulas.
I was so happy to find those women who helped me along and eventually it was great it really caught on. Our second child I had Lamaze and it was so much better to see the child immediately after birth.
I am so happy thinking about how well the family made this important part of married life so special and memorable.. The arrival of the First born. Thank you Great Aunt Debbie HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Congratulations to all! That is wonderful news. Sure wish the daddy could be there, but I agree - Skype is fantastic. (We use it when Ev is researching overseas for weeks or months at a time - bedtime stories, discipline lectures, etc.)
