We interrupt today's regularly scheduled post with breaking news: the long-awaited birth of Baby Rice!
7:00 am (all times PDT)
Got a text from Courtney at 2:30 this morning saying she was on her way to the hospital. Latest text at 6:15 says she's 3-4 centimeters.
No further word. What did Tom Petty say? The waiting really is the hardest part!
8 centimeters! Should be soon.
Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting... This is making me mental! (More than usual.)
Just talked to Courtney...
Hazel Julia Rice was born at 5:15 EDT!
8 lbs., 12 oz.
HAZEL!!! I have a granddaughter named HAZEL!!!
I have a granddaughter! Oh, we all soooo wanted a girl!
Courtney's doing very well--natural childbirth, too. She and John are thrilled! Connor was on his way over to the hospital to check out his little sister with Uncle Chris and Aunt Ketti.
Oh, happy day! I'm off to Ross to buy pink, pink, PINK!!!
Hazels's granny went shopping!
Thanks to everyone for your good wishes! I love you all!
