Surprise!

Yesterday was an exciting day! Daniel Alexander arrived mid-afternoon about 2 weeks early. Thanks to Michael and modern technology, we got to see this picture when he was brand new.
Welcome, Daniel!
Isn't it great that hospitals now let everyone in the family rejoice together at a time like this?
And Daniel makes five!
Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, Auntie Catherine was sound asleep when Opa forgot about the time difference and called her. She's in Africa again for her work with Unitus and had just returned from a weekend safari. Uncle Carl's back home from China, and we're having dinner with him tonight. We're a very happy family!
Look what Catherine saw!

Another baby on your blog - there must be something in the water over there! Daniel is so cute - it always amazes me how small they look as new borns, and yet how large, considering from whence they came !

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! What a sweet bundle!!! I am so glad that everything went so well. He is wonderful and congratulations.
Thanks so much for thinking of me as well. Things are going well. Doctor said on Tuesday that the head is down but the baby is still high and so he is looking to it being born next week still. Due date is June 3rd. So far, I just have pain in my back and stomach from carrying this extra weight around. hehe. Soon I will be sore from carrying it on the outside. :) Big Hugs,
Wendy
