The birth of caleb daniel

Grandchild #3 was born yesterday. His name is Caleb Daniel. He was born at 10:09 am, Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne. He weighed 8 lbs., 2 oz., and is 20.5 inches long. He also has a head full of blonde hair. Everyone is healthy and doing well.

Carrie checked into the hospital at 12:01 am Tuesday. They induced her into labor, and she said she just barely got the epidural because the little guy was ready to come out once things started happening. Sounds like this was the easiest delivery by far.

I was working at the Stellhorn storage facility for Drew. I was extremely busy first thing in the morning, so I didn't even get to enjoy the moment as much as I'd have liked to. I think I was on my fourth move-in when Drew texted me about the birth - and I'd only been at work a little over half an hour. I do suppose it was better that he got to be at the hospital for it than me. :)

Grandma was busy all day watching Anna and Bennett. Fortunately she was able to take a few days off work. They all went up to see Caleb during the day. Anna was pretty excited to get to hold him. She told me he was "cute." I went up to see him after I got home from work last night.

Feeling very proud and happy for everyone. I even showed a random lady at the bank his picture. The only downer of the day was finding out I misplaced $189 at work on Monday. So after the hospital visit I went to SW and tried to retrace my steps. I didn't have any luck, so this will not be a very profitable week money-wise. Oh well. There are other things of more importance.

Caleb Daniel.... nice name. :)

Congratulations, you're now Grandpa²*Grandpa=Grandpa Cubed. (I guess they don't have a raised 3rd power in the IBM extended character set). Maybe Grandpaⁿ where n=3. Fine looking boy. It seems appropriate that Daniel is his middle name as that is the one his mother will use when he's in trouble.
