It's COLD here! But that's not the news!

Okay, maybe the birth of my new grandson didn't make the national news like this frigid weather has, but it hasn't captivated the family's attention like he has! We arrived here in more than enough time for his birth AND I got to witness his breath into this world! I took plenty of pictures (but I'm sure my DIL would kill me if I posted the really cool ones!) and I will post a couple of the baby when we get back home. My son, my DIL's mom and myself were in the room when he was born. I got to be at the "interesting" end! Mom, Baby and Grandma are all doing fine! Let me tell you gals: Allowing your MIL to witness your child's birth has got to be one of the most unselfish things a woman can do for another. I'll post again in a few days. Meanwhile, remember to resist the temptation to turn your thermometers up and dress more warmly, in layers, instead. Love and blessings to you all, Sher
