A Niece Is On the Way
At this very moment, my brother and his wife are likely on their way to the hospital. My three-year-old nephew is about to get a little sister. My mother tells me they’ve been considering naming her Claire Elyse. What’s really cool for me is that I’ll be there in Washington two weeks from today.
Since Bryan will obviously have his hands full for the next several days, I’ll fill in more details here when I find out.
It’s obviously a fluke, but I was just pondering the small irony that Riley was born just a few days before 9/11 and now my niece is going to be born just before Mount St. Helens possibly blows up again.
Update: Heidi got sent home. Apprently she wasn’t having enough contractions. They are going to admit her in the morning at 8:00 am to induce labor. My mother wonders why they didn’t just keep her overnight.
