Here are DnA, along with my little GD (She Who Is Yet To Be Named):
Only A’s food (as the “patient”) would be free, we’d have to pay for our food, we realized…and we didn’t know what the food would taste like, so we packed our lunches yesterday….KM and I, being good TamBrams, each took along a 6 inch Sub.. and our white American son-in-law…packed curds and rice and mango pickle, and beans sabji!
At precisely 9.00 AM (central time) on 29 April,2009, DnA’s little daughter came into the world naturally. She is 20 inches tall and weights 7.124 lbs (3.14 kgs.). Mother and daughter are doing fine. Baby has a LOUD voice. :)
I was up at 5 am, getting ready so that we could leave for the hospital by 6.30 am (there’s always that last-minute rush for the hot water!) and at 5.30 am, we get a call from the hospital, saying that many women came into the hospital in a state of advanced labour, so elective procedures like inducement of labour had been postponed…so DnA will probably get a call only this evening or tomorrow morning (more likely). All dressed and nowhere to go…DnA went right back to sleep but me, the insomniac…I went for a nice long walk!
We had a packed weekend, on Sunday, we went to see the Chinese festival and parade in the Missouri Botanical Center, and the show was very good indeed. Then our daughter picked us up and took us for a drive downtown, and this was the first time that I clicked all the touristy images of the Gateway Arch …
