A Boy!


My first grandchild was born today! It was a boy of 3,400g. Wow!
Yesterday afternoon my daughter went to the hospital for the maternity check up, feeling a weak tension at her belly. The doctor and midwife recommended her to stay in the ward and she was hospitalized. So I left my work earlier, dropped in at my house to fetch her baggage, and went to the hospital. Her labor pains were not severe at that time. Her husband came at 10 o'clock in the night from Tottori. Still, her pains did not come frequently, so I went home to take a rest.

It was near two o'clock when one of the nurses led us to the LDR (Labor, Delivery, and Recovery) room. There! We found exhausted but happy daughter and her baby. She started to weep when she saw us. We praised her sacred work. 3,400g baby for a primipara must have been a very hard job.
And the baby! He is beautiful! We never tired of watching him. He cries, yawns, waves his small hands abruptly, sneezes, and tries to drink mother's milk. Oh I have become his devotee, in half an hour, already.
