Yesterday Lisa and I drove down to Gastonia to visit Samantha, Susan, and Joe. With just one hiccup Lisa almost took out my small tree backing out of the driveway. But it would have been a blessing if she had because the tree is so ugly.
But anyway back to the important stuff. Susan and Joe are doing great. They seem to be settling into being parents pretty easy. Susan was looking great. She had the glow of being a mother about her. Samantha is cute as a button. I am telling you the Ford women just make cute babies.
Susan had a pretty easy labor. By the time she got to the hospital she was already ten centimeters dilated. Then she just had to push for about 28 minutes. Of course being a Ford and being competitive she had to one up me. She had Samantha 4 days early and pushed for a shorter time then me. But it is all good! I got to hold Samantha for awhile. I forgot how small babies feel in your arms. Virginia has gotten so big now. I can toss her around like a football. Samantha felt so fragile. It is hard for me to think Virginia was even smaller then Samantha at birth. But Samantha is doing great. She was born at 9:25 am and weighed 8 pounds. She has a nice round head and no problems. Susan and Joe will be taking her home Friday. Let us all pray that her two sisters Nico and Rufus will not mistake her as a new chew toy.
Virginia is highly excited about getting to meet her cousin Samantha. You can tell her excitement by the picture at the bottom. Of course I couldn't do a entry without posting some photos of Virginia also. So enjoy the cute photos of Samantha and Virginia. Oh and Susan and Joe aren't bad either.
