How exciting!  I would have been freaked out for sure.  All your grandchildren will be special to you, but this one will have a special connection to you.

You delivered him? Wow, girl! 

Wow! My daughter is looking for a part time midwife at her Birthing Center,  Do you want her email addy to send her your resume?  Great job and beautiful baby.

Lol. I tell you, she started labor about 7am and texted the midwife “I’m in labor”. She texted back “let me know when you’re at 3-5 minutes apart for 1hour”

well we were using the iPhone baby app. That records your contractions and she was all over the map with times etc. so at 12:00 she said text her it’s time now. And then within 5 minutes said mom My body is pushing and I can’t stop it. So I called the midwife and said where are you he’s coming and she said she was 25 minutes out. I said he’s crowning and laid the phone down. All she could do is yell affirmations. (We never really heard her). 
shelley, in the meantime after about 7:30 everything was ready and I was waiting for her to come to my room (where she birthed in my big garden tub) and so I googled “emergency deliveries” and read about it just to kill time.

It of course didn’t prepare me enough, but we gotter done.  All of you are so right I do need to write it all down. I will today while so vivid in my mind.

Wow - what an amazing experience - but scary too.  I'm so glad it turned out well.  Your new little grandson is adorable.  Congrats Grandma!
