On this Pink Saturday nothing seems more appropriate to share than pictures of my new granddaughter. Lauren Elizabeth was born at 8 p.m. EDT on Monday, May 18. She weighed 7 lb., 15 oz. and was 19 1/4” long.
Little Miss Lauren will probably keep people waiting all her life. She was due May 7, so LBeau and I had our trip to Annapolis carefully planned. We would leave Birmingham on May 13, get in a couple of days visiting my cousin in Accomac, Virginia, move on to Annapolis to see Brent receive his master of liberal arts degree from St. John’s College, and most importantly welcome our new granddaughter.
Wrong. By Monday when it was time for us to head back to Birmingham, she had still not made her appearance. We left Annapolis at 5 a.m., planning to make the return trip in one day and knowing we needed an early start to get around Washington, D.C., without traffic delays. By mid-morning we were sight seeing along Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park when Brent called to say that they were headed to the hospital.
We continued to get updates throughout the day. Finally, just as we arrived in Birmingham, Lauren decided to make her grand entrance, and we missed the whole thing. Fortunately, we will see her soon when we help them move to Savannah. I can’t wait to get my hands on her.
