Myla Jolene, our youngest, grandchild (as of now) finally arrived at 8:08 in the morning of May 21, 2013!
Here we were waiting outside surgery as they prepped my daughter Rochelle for her C section. The doctor did not want to risk her getting into labor and having a normal delivery because she just had a c section last year when she had the twins.
My son in law, Derek, was all set too, just waiting with us.
Then, the time came. AJ's classmate was with us. Usually 2 people are allowed to watch through the glass so when the anaesthesiologist came to tell us they were ready, I asked if all 3 of us could go in because I did not want to leave one of the girls outside by herself. He went in to check and then came back and invited us all in.
Yes, we witnessed everything, from beginning till the end.
Mommy is getting anxious. She can't wait to get it all over with and finally meet the baby.
Rochelle was getting emotional.
Mommy finally met her and had a first picture with the parents.
As soon as the nurse came out from the labor room with the baby and she had to pass by us, she asked AJ if she wants to hold her. But of course!
The baby was weighed and measured in the nursery, 8 lbs, 3 oz and 20.25 inches long.
Moving to a room upstairs.
Time for a family picture! Cheeeeeese!
I just love how Halle stares at her.
The twins were just mesmerized by this moving doll.
Halle just kept staring and waving at her, it was so cute!
We all took our turns to hold her.
Welcome to our lives, sweet Myla. We love you very much already.
Our precious Myla at 1 day old.
I just added this, finally got her pic with eyes open.
Thank you so much for all your prayers. They really helped because both mom and baby are doing very well. I am just so relieved that everything went well.
