Bright eyed Josie yesterday!
We are so excited and pleased to announce arrival of the newest member of our family. . .
Josephine Claire Gratteau
Born Saturday May 16th at 8:04pm
20 1/2 inches
Her birth was a very exciting and fast experience. I started labor at Robert's Luau Fundraiser, and Steve had been at the hospital to relieve Ashley for the day. I knew it was the real thing around 6:55. My mom drove me home from the luau, and I called the midwife as soon as we left. Steve was told to go straight home when they got ahold of him. He arrived about a minute before my mom and I did. Josephine arrived so quickly that she beat the midwife by about seven minutes and my mom ended up 'catching' her! It went well all things considered. I think it was nothing short of an 'act of God' that we made it home and Steve was there for his daughter's birth!
