"It's Time"

I got a phone call last night at 12:30 from Mrs. Neighbor who said, "It's time". Me sound asleep said, "time for what?" She: "The baby's coming." THAT got me fully awake. Remind me next time I'm on baby watch to wear cute PJs and not some old T-shirt that I'd have to scoot home in in the daylight.

The drill was this: if it were daytime, I would drive her to the hospital and take toddlergirl with me. At night I was to go and sleep on their couch and be there when toddlergirl woke up. I have toddlergirl at the house right now. We've eaten pancakes and watching some "Incredibles". 45 minutes ago I heard from Mr. Neighbor that they were breaking Mrs's water. I'm thinking she may be delivering right about now.

Welcome to earth Babyneighbor.

Edit - I posted this first at 9:51 and Babyneighbor's birth time was 9:57.

Sweet. That's a future blogger, if I've ever seen one!

Wish them blessings for us. Nice to hear of a new baby coming into the world, even if I don't know them at all. They're lucky to have a helpful neighbor like you, too.
