View Full Version : NSS: New grandson
06-21-2006, 11:34 AM
My wife has been in Omaha since June 10 - my daughter thought she was about to go into labor then (her due date was June 13). Yesterday afternoon my wife called and said they were going to induce labor this morning. Well, the stubborn kid who was 6 days overdue wasn't about to have someone tell him what to do, so he got labor started last night and popped out at 3:34am this morning. Rowan is an 8lb. 6.5oz, 20 inches long, dark haired (his mom was a baldie until she was over a year old) thumb sucker. He joins his sister (our other grandchild) who turned 2 1/2 on June 13. His 13-year old aunt (our youngest daughter) will be staying to help for about a month (our son-in-law will be making a trip to El Salvador in early July).
At least my wife can plan on coming home soon. My 15-year-old son and I have been managing to subsist, but it hasn't been easy.

Is your Daughter an Anne MacCafferty fan? That is the only place where I can recall seeing the name Rowan.
Congrats on the addition to the family.
