CHRISTMAS BABIES ARE THE BEST
It was perfect...
for months my sis, Taunt Mone and I had planned it.
She would come to my house on Christmas day,
we would have supper with her baby girl, Minta
in Addis, the next town over from my home,
then on the 26th we would drive to Women's hospital
to watch the birth of her third granddaughter, Violet
be born by scheduled C section...
Oh but babies, they come when they want.
Something told me, by Minta's phone calls
"Aunt Lil y'all don't have to wait for supper to come"
"what time will y'all get here"
I told Taunt Mone that we better go as something
made me think she might be in labor.
So we left Galliano, stopped at Cindy's home just
to drop of gifts and we were on our way to MInta's home
Then right when we were in Thibodaux,
we got the call,
"UM Aunt Lil, can you guys just meet us at the hospital"
Right at the exit we needed to go straight to the hospital.
It was perfect! We got there just in time to kiss
Mommy and Daddy bye to go into surgery,
Take big sis, Lillian into the waiting room.
Then other family came, aunts and the other grandmother,
Abby and Guy....
Within an hour our little
7 POUNDS 1 OUNCE
20 INCHES LONG
entered our big world on Christmas day.
What a great was to end a great holiday.
All are fine and our hearts are full.
Best present ever!
