I'm a grandma again!!
« on: February 24, 2015, 12:07:48 PM »
Wow! Grand baby #9 arrived yesterday, 8 weeks early!  Quite the surprise to us, and to my stepdaughter Jenny and her husband Tom!  Kevin's phone rang in the middle of the night and he ignored it and turned off the ringer.  I guess they tried to call him 3 more times!  They never tried my phone!  We woke up to find the news on FB.  Lol. I told Kevin that with pregnant kids and kids and grandkids living all over the place, we need to answer our phones in the middle of the night!

Anyway....Margaret Louise is here!  She weighs 4lbs, 3 oz and is 17" long, so she's just a little peanut!  She's doing very well breathing on her own, so we are hopeful she won't have to stay in the hospital very long. Jenny feels great...only had about two hours labor and Margaret popped right out. Easy peasy for her first baby!

In other grand baby news, my daughter Jessie is now 12 weeks along and doing well.  She's had two ultrasounds already, because of a couple of issues she has, and baby is looking good!  Can't wait to meet grand baby #10 in September!

Life is good my friends!  :)

AND
I love her name! My mom's name was Margaret. A lot of her family called her Margie. She was called Marge by the rest of the world. I called her Marge Charge because she loved to shop and use her credit card. LOL

HAVE FUN!

Quick baby update:  they are calling her Meg.  She is named after a great aunt, and her middle name, Louise, is my middle name.  However, she is actually named after Kevin's mom, whose middle name was also Louise.  I doubt if my stepdaughter even knew my middle name was Louise. Lol.

Meg is doing great!  She has been breathing on her own since birth, so no oxygen needed, and she is taking a bottle of breast milk with a little trouble. They are feeding her that way and with a feeding tube too til she gets the hang of breathing and sucking at the same time.   She was able to regulate her temperature outside of the incubator reasonably well for a little while, so that's good too.  She has jaundice, so she's under the lights.  All in all, she's doing well.   I'm not sure when we will get to see her. They live in NY, so we will be planning a trip there soon.

I have several beloved family connections to the name Margaret, one who went by Peg, and one who goes by Meg. I personally LOVE the name Meg and think that Margaret is a strong woman's name who will get a lot done in her lifetime. Congrats again on your newest family member, Nancy!

Thanks Angela!  I don't know of any Megs on Kevin's side of the family. The aunt went by Margaret.  My sisters granddaughter is a Margaret and they call her Maggie, which I love!
