Welcome to the World Piper Nicole Dennison

We got into town Thursday evening and Wyatt & his daddy stopped in the hotel to see us (Michele's mom is staying at their house so we thought we'd give them some space). We hadn't seen him for a few weeks but he knows right away who we are. Tom & I then went off to have dinner with my two brothers and two sisters. It was nice but we sure don't do it often enough. We probably won't get together now until after Christmas.
On to the real story. The birth of our sixth grandchild Piper Nicole Dennison. Michele had a rough labor last time (you can see it HERE) and had an emergency C-Section. This time they just scheduled it and it was a very calm and peaceful process at least for us that were observers. She was scheduled for a 7:30 surgery and at 7:44.

Here she is weighing 8 pounds 4.6 ounces and 21 inches long

Wyatt loved her right away. Making the sign for "baby" and giving tons of kisses.

Even though we have done this five times before it still feels like the most special moment of our lives.
Her doctor came in to check her out and proclaimed her perfect. He held her up and asked if we wanted to take pictures so we felt we should even though we had been taking pictures for an hour already. She was born on not only our nephew, Rob's 29th birthday but on the doctor's wife's birthday.

Michele is doing so much better than she did last time. They were worried early on when she passed a big clot but everything seemed to work itself out.

We spent a couple of hours at the hospital and then took Wyatt out for the day. It was freezing in Ohio and we wanted to get him a new winter coat so we set out for the mall. Isn't this pea coat the cutest!

We went to lunch and he was very entertained by my phone. The best toy ever.

We then went back to the hospital for awhile and took Daddy out for steak (and took one back to Mommy too)

Then we took Wyatt back to our hotel to swim. Tom thought he would be able to mange him in the water but I ended up taking over. He's feeling good but not that good YET

Then back to the room to play some Hotwheels.

What a day! We are exhausted and all I wanted to do was take a long hot shower but the hotel was having trouble with their hot water. Oh well. Now it's almost 11 and I never got my shower.Maybe in the morning . . . .
