As I arrived at the Denver airport on Friday afternoon, I received that greeting I was waiting for as My Jackson's face lit up, and he jumped to me! Love it! We stopped for a little yogurt at the airport. All afternoon and evening Heidi was having mild contractions then in the evening they were stronger, but quit when she moved around. The night was uneventful, but by morning the contractions were getting stronger and closer. We took an afternoon stroll downtown Brighton at the annual Cultural Street fair. Jackson got a kick out of the remote control dalmation on the fire engine!When we got home, we had lunch and took a nap. By about 5 pm Heidi was laboring well. She called her doctor’s service at we were at the hospital by 7:30. This is the little mom happy to be leaving for the hospital. It went very well, and she did great with pains strong and about 4 minutes apart before getting the epidural at about 9:30. Daphne Jill arrived at 12:57 pm officially on her due date of June 7th. She weighed 7 lbs. 4 oz. and measured 19 ½ inches. She's telling daddy all about it! She resembles her brother’s newborn pictures, but is her own little person. Gramma’s little beauty! She latched on to feed for 45 minutes immediately, and that was amazing, as nursing was a difficult process for Jackson at first. She wrapped her hand around her momma’s pinky finger…so sweet.
When Jackson arrived the next morning, he went right to his sister to give her hugs and kisses. He told "sister, I love you". Heart melter! Blessing to be gramma!!
