She's here!

We became the proud grandparents of Piper Alice this morning at 12:52 a.m. She is 7 lbs 3 oz and one of the three most beautiful babies ever. (her two cousins have the other two spots in my heart) I'll post a picture as soon as I can figure it out on my iPad. Mom and baby are doing fine. I've been in Portland since Monday night and Grandpa drove down Friday. He made it in time, with just a few hours to spare. I'll be staying for a few weeks to help out but he will have to go back to work. The labor was very long and I was honored to be there for almost all of it and for Piper's birth. What a precious gift that was, to be with my daughter as she had her own daughter. I just wish I could have taken some of the pain away for her. I'll try to be back soon with a picture. Blessings, Betsy
