Ray and I went along to Abbotsford as soon as we heard the wonderful news. Meg was looking good when we arrived but she was just settling down for a nap so we just stayed for a very short while so she could sleep. It may be some time before that happens again as those of us who have had children are fully aware.
Now for the baby, she was born at 4 pounds 1 ounce so she is very tiny. We saw this tiny perfect little girl in the incubator as she is so small. Her name is Charlotte, after Carla her grandmother and Kathleen after her great grandmother on her mom's side. So Charlotte Kathleen, a big name for such a tiny little girl. I took no photos of either Meaghan or little Charlotte. Meaghan was not at her best of course and I thought it was not a good idea to be snapping away at the baby because the flash might startle. Lewis said he had taken some photos and would send them to me and I think Carla also took some so that seemed to be enough I thought. She had to be put on a feeding tube because she wasn't eating well enough. So small and she was not yet ready to be born so she didn't have the skills to eat.
I hope the pictures come soon so I can share them with you.
Tonight I am going out to my teachers' pot luck party. So I'll send this in now and get back to my blog after I come back from the pot luck.
Home again but am very tired so I'll say good night to all.
