I'm back and I'm a grandma. After a prolonged labor and being sent home from the hospital 4 times last week they broke my daughter's water on Thursday morning around 8:30 am and Nathan Adam Melton was born at 4:22 pm. He weighed in at 5 lbs 12 ozs and was 18 1/2 inches long. He is so beautiful. Watching my grandchild be born was one of the most amazing things ever. It was also one of the most challenging days ever. I was forced to face head on one of my biggest fears. Alicia's birth mother,who I haven't seen since prior to the adotion almost ten years ago, was there. It really was ok. I was on one side and she was on the other and for Alicia's sake we put everthing aside and it was all ok. I will leave you with some pictures.
