Sweet Caroline

Caroline Grey Glawson is here!

Greg and Jillian's tiny, precious baby girl was born at 7:09 pm on Sunday, November 20.  She was a perfect 8 lbs even and 21.5 inches long.  She is such a pretty baby, and I am finally an aunt!  Here I am with brand-new baby Caroline in the delivery room!
When we heard that Caroline was on the way, we were all so excited.  My parents and I waited out the afternoon and evening at the hospital with Jillian's family.  
This was the first time that I'd been in the hospital waiting room, anxiously awaiting the arrival of a new baby, and it is much more stressful than I'd thought while I was on the other side!  We kept trying not to pester Greg and Jillian, but of course we wanted to know every little bit of progress.
  Finally, we got word that Jillian was ready to push. In just 40 minutes, little Caroline was born!  Of course, we had to wait a while to see her, but that's okay - I know time goes so quickly for the new parents and baby in the delivery and recovery room.  There's so much to do just after a new baby comes.  Greg got to come out and deliver the big news himself, and he was thrilled about his new baby girl.
When we got back to see the newest little Glawson, it was definitely worth the wait!  Greg was beyond excited, and Jillian didn't even look like she'd just had a baby.  
I got to help walk them up from the delivery room to their hospital room... here's the new family heading upstairs to their home away from home for a few days!
We didn't stay long once they got upstairs- it was so late, and of course they were all so tired.  We gave our congratulations to Jillian for a job well done, looked at little Caroline for a few minutes, gave Greg a squeeze, and got out of there so they could spend some time together.  We did snap a few pictures of Gigi and Granddad with their newest grandbaby before we left, of course!
 Caroline is such a cute little thing, and they're a sweet little family already!  I can't wait to watch her grow!

Here are more pictures from Caroline's birth day...
