I'm a grandma!

The vital statistics: a baby boy, Aiden Lowell, born at 14:50 CST on 30 January, 8 pounds 1 ounce, 21.5 inches long. Mother, Daddy, and baby are all doing great!

Ben with Aiden
My older son, Ben, made us grandparents for the first time. Aiden is also the first great-grandchild for Steven's parents. Ben and Andrea had a really busy Friday and Saturday. When Andrea went into labor, Ben kept us informed with text messages.

They were discharged from the hospital by 16:00 on the 31st. Andrea's mother, Karen, had gotten things ready for them at home and she's staying with the kids for a couple of nights until Andrea can get a bit of rest. Although we had spent a little bit of time with them at the hospital on Saturday, we drove over to their house to have a short visit in a much more comfortable venue. Karen made a big pot of beef vegetable soup, so we had a bite of supper along with the near obligatory "oohs" and "aahs".

Aiden seems to have a very mellow personality. Hope it persists. His Daddy is quite excitable, and I can't imagine how things would be if Aiden inherited that personality trait. We plan to go back down to their house on Wednesday or Thursday to take some pictures of the whole family together.
