Welcome to the World William!

August 28, 2007 4:44pm Eastern, Fredricksburg, VA…..

My grandson, William Charles was born. He weighed 8 lbs, 9 oz, and is 20″ long. He has a little bit of brown hair. According to Daddy, William and Mommy are doing fine.

It has been a really long nite and day. They went to the hospital last nite. I did not sleep well last nite. Waiting, wondering….. called Neil at 6:30 am, still no baby. He called me at 10 and 2…… still no baby. Finally when he called about 6pm, William was here. I am sure their relief is even bigger than mine!

So…… Welcome to the big wide world William.   Today you met Mom and Dad, and tomorrow you get to meet your big sister Elizabeth.  I can hardly wait to give you a little snuggle myself  in a few weeks.

Grandma Gayle
