Week 40 was an incredible week for us...and it was all centered around the birth of my grandson, Wade Garrison. Sure, I did play tennis that week (and won) and the kids had their usual school activities but we were in the waiting game. Amanda was due on Sunday, October 6 but she had both David and Taylor before her due dates so we knew this little one could come along at any point.
On Friday I offered to keep the kids so that she and Big David (her hubby) could have one last night out before they went from a family of 4 to a family of 5. She had told me that would be great but later in the day I got the text that they would come to my house but would probably not do dinner and to "wash your hair". That was "code" for she was probably in labor....I had told her that when she thought she was in labor that I would need to know so that I could wash my hair! I didn't want pictures of me with my new grandchild to show me with ratty hair, you know? LOL! So instead of saying she was in labor she just told me to wash my hair. LOL!!!
They arrived here around 5:30, I think and dropped of the two little ones and headed to the hospital. I took David and Taylor to their other grandparents and headed to the hospital so I could be there with them.
I arrived at the hospital at about 6:45pm. By that time she was already 5-6cm dilated, I think. It wasn't long before she was 8-9cms and then time to have the baby.
Amanda has babies quickly. I knew this time around that I would need to have my camera ready and focused. Taylor came so quickly that I wanted to tell the Dr. to put her back as I didn't get many pictures. This time I was a little better prepared! ;)
So my Project Life for Week 40 is pretty much all about the day the little guy joined us (although I did sneak a couple of photos of David in!).

I am a lucky Omie.
OK, so this two page spread only goes to Friday but my weeks go to Saturday. I have a lot of photos for Saturday, though, when several people came to the hospital to see the little guy so I am going to do another two page spread for that. An insert page just would not be enough, you know? A Week 40 part B, so to speak...
I am off today to spend with a friend or two and meet some new ladies who also have a love of paper crafting.
I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday...thanks for stopping by!
