Yesterday I made an impromptu road trip to Corpus Christi to meet my new grandson Brody who was born just that morning (4/29). The reason the trip was unplanned is because, for some reason, the doctor decided to or agreed to induce labor. My step-daughter says it was because the baby was so big (well, he was just over 7 pounds....that's not too big, but whatever). Mom and baby are healthy - thank you Universe for your many many blessings! I am not a carrier of the Maternal Gene (the Universe gave my share to my sister God rest her soul), but I do appreciate family - and greeting new babies into the world is a joyous thing.
