What I'm Seeing Now

First Markanich Grandchild

Well, the first Markanich grandchild was born today about 11am Mountain Daylight Time!

Mother and baby BOY are doing well.

No name yet, but the baby is 20" long and 7lbs, 7oz.

Born in Orem, Utah, my daughter was in labor for well over 40 hours!  I guess at high altitude things take a little longer to cook...

We will be traveling out there the first weekend in November to see him.

This is pretty much how I am seeing things unfolding in a couple of years.

 

 

 

 

Just got this...

 

Thought I better slip it in, even if late.

Reuben - wow!  We always had two names going to the hospital.  We never knew the gender.  This couple did not know the gender until it was born!  Uncommon these days...

Tish - that is what I am told.  They want to call me Pah Pah.

Thanks Damon.  But I am looking around and there are no additions here.  Oh, you mean...   ;)

I am Debbie.  There are two reasons I am waiting until then!
