Sully is here!

My new grandson, Sullivan Loren Yliniemi, arrived yesterday, September 10, at 2:25 a.m. He's 7 lbs. 4 oz. and 19 inches. He and mom, Micah, are doing great and will come home today, when I'll get to meet him for the first time.

I received the expected phone call at 11 p.m. Friday, asking me to come over to stay with the three grandgirls while Micah and Adam drove to the hospital, which is an hour and fifteen minutes away. Micah always does most of her laboring at home and BARELY makes it to the hospital in time, lol. Actually, it was a whole 2 hours later that they had the baby. She said that she experienced a couple of contractions on the trip where they thought they might have to pull over and deliver the baby in the car. Ha!

I had worked on Friday, doing the customary chicken frying, so I'm a bit done in today. I didn't get much more sleep than the laboring mom. :) Then a long day of keeping up with three active girls. Whew! (Poor me; whine.)

Anyhoo, here are pics of the little man. His middle name is that of his great-grandfather's on his dad's side. He will be much adored by his big sisters! And he will be called Sully or Sly, more than likely. :)

 Audrey and Hazel had their first day of school pictures taken on Tuesday. Audrey is in kindergarten (homeschool) and she wants to be a firefighter when she grows up.
 Hazel is a preschooler and she wants to be a cowboy! :) I suggested to her that she might have to be a cowGIRL. To which she replied with a little smile, "Oh. Okay." She didn't know that option was available.

That's all the news fit to print at the moment. Everyone enjoy your Sunday!
