This morning at the ungodly hour of 4:00 AM, we left for the airport to fly to MSP. From there the plan was to rent a car and drive to my mom's house in Willard, Wi for a long weekend in celebration of her 80th birthday. We were up at 2:45 (couldn't sleep) and out of the house in plenty of time. The flight was uneventful. We landed a few minutes late and started the trek to the Alamo counter-the equivalent of 7.5 miles-or so it seemed :)
Just before reaching the rental car area, my cell phone rang. It was son-in-law Thomas informing us that, while we were boarding our flight, daughter Carrie delivered their baby in the front seat of their van while he raced to the hospital and the other 3 kids watched! Quite dramatic! Mom and baby are doing well and so are Dad and sibs. Sabrina Rose arrived at 5:11 AM central time weighing in at 7# 6.25 oz. and measuring 19" long. She has a full head of black hair and she's just beautiful. Labor lasted less than 1 hour. Many moms would be jealous of that!
