So I got a call about 7 am Saturday morning from my Mom, Molly was in labor and in the hospital. I laid in bed not being able to go back to sleep for about an hour and called my Mom back when I got up. Molly was progressing and they were headed up to E-burg. I called Emily as we had decided to drive up together. The feeling I got was that the baby would be born any minute. By the time Emily got here is was about 11 or 12 and we headed to the hospital to see Molly. All day we thought it was going to happen any minute. We visited we left we came back we tried to do the cross word, we left again and came back, we waited and waited and waited. We learned new medical terms like "Great", "wonderful", "it should be soon" and "it won't be long now" By the way it won't be long now actually means in the next couple of days. You could tell that this was the first grand baby on our side of the family. It was exciting, a bit boring and really tiring. I can't even imagine what Molly and Paul were feeling.
Waiting and Listening for Crying
Two of the happiest Aunts ever
So about 11:05 we heard the first cry of little Leah, although it took us a few more minutes before we even knew that she was a GIRL. After the doctors and the nurses did what they needed to do we got to see the new family! And oh my was she worth the wait!

Molly and Paul have a lot of work ahead of them but they have a great start and a precious little daughter to make it a little easier.
