Baby Done Right
Well, my neighbors didn't make it to Monday. While we were walking the dogs, Emma's water broke and her pains started. Late last night, James called to ask if we would doggy-sit PJ, their Yorkie. At 6:46AM, 15 hours after Mom's water broke, James Connor Bruce, Jr., 10 (TEN!) pounds, 2 ounces, 21" long, hale and healthy with his Daddy's bright red hair, was born. Mother and son are doing well and Daddy is worn out. Of course, PJ got more rest. He and Rocky piled up on our feet and slept all night with us.
There is so much joy in this nice family, today. I am waiting for Emma's mom to come by and pick up PJ and I have already ordered flowers and balloons for the newest little Bruce. This baby was a little miracle. Having tried for a pregnancy for 4 years without any aid, they had started the fertility drugs. She never saw another period after her first dose and they were actually expecting more than one until they got the ultra-sound. It was just a heftly singleton. There will be no adoption in this family. Hallelulia!
Welcome, Junior. Live well among your own people and may your hair stay red. 'Tis the mark of the Bruces.
