We have a Grand Daughter!!!!!

This was the greatest surprise ever!!! Meagan's baby was due on August 3rd. All along Meagan talked about how they were having a boy. They had an ultrasound at 20 weeks and the doctor showed them the picture and told them to see if they could see anything. Well, to me it sure looked like it was a boy. Soooo..........I had planned to fly down today, Sunday the 27th. On saturday morning at about 6:45 a.m. Meagan called and said she was going to the hospital. Alan was on his way home from San Diego and I couldn't get ahold of him, so I got on the computer and changed my plane ticket for a noon departure that day. I kept close contact with Meg the whole time, thinking that there would be no way that I would make it in time since Atlas only took 5 hours to come. Well, the plane landed at 2:45. I called Meg and they were just getting ready to break her water. Tawni picked me up from the airport, and we made it to the hospital in Orem at 3:45. Meagan was just getting ready to start pushing. I couldn't believe that we actually made it to the hospital in time. I feel so lucky and blessed. Well, she started pushing and as that baby came out and we saw the head we were still thinking little boy......until SHE came all the way out! I took one look and yelled, "It's a girl"! You would think we were all watching the Super Bowl. The room errupted. Marilyn Gerrard was there with Hailey, Nanette (Brent's mom), Tawni, Brent and I were all there. It was the best Surprise ever. Little Emily Elisabeth weighed in at 7 lbs. even and is 20 inches long. She has lots of black hair and is a very healthy eater. I will be here until next Saturday to help out and spend time with our grandkids! We are so blessed. As soon as I can load pics I will put some up!!
