Default Best opening day ever!

My alarm went off at 5:30 Saturday morning, opening day of rifle season. Zach and I had been seeing a couple nice bucks on camera at a feeder in an open field, not conducive to a bow setup. So we were waiting for rifle. I picked up my phone to turn off the alarm and saw messages from Zach. At 3am his wife's water broke, and they were up at the hospital. Due date was December 13th, so this was a few weeks early. Everything going well though.

I woke M.C. and she started getting dressed. A few minutes later, Zach texted again and said they figured out the baby was breach, so they were doing a C-section. M.C.'s cousin is an anesthesiologist, and he was on duty that night. Zach texted him, so he went up to labor and delivery to help. M.C. and I hurried to get up to the hospital. As we were walking in, her cousin started texting us pics of the baby. It happened pretty quick.

What a blessing! This is our first grandbaby. We couldn't be happier. She's still in the NICU, due to being born at 34 weeks. She is doing great though. No lung issues. Just a little jaundice, and she's still building strength and stamina to be able to eat as much and as often as she needs to before going home. Shouldn't be too much longer. Prayers for her to get to go home soon are appreciated though.

What a blessing!

Congrats sir!! And glad momma and baby are doing well! And we just got blessed almost 11 mos. ago with our first, NOTHING like it! My daughter had a boy, which is monumental for me, cuz I had 4 older sisters growing up, plus my mom. Then after I got married I had twin girls, then another girl later, so 3 daughters. I wouldn’t trade my daughters for all the boys in the world, but I ain’t gonna lie, I was pumped to finally get a boy!! Good Huntin, and God Bless, Rusty

Congratulations GrandPa!! Shane, you are in for a treat brother!! If we'd a know'd grandkids was so much fun, we'd a had them first!!
We had the pleasure of watching Zach grow up here on the green screen... a third generation is very well started! She's a real cutie!


Lord please grow this child that You have blessed this family with into a strong woman who is Your disciple! Clear up those lungs and make them strong. Take away the Jundice and give her an appetite to eat. Give mom the milk she needs to feed her daughter and bless them with a generation of pride in this young one. In Your image she was created, and I pray that she is a reflection of you Lord as she grows up. In Jesus name, Amen.

Thanks. She's a C-section baby, so she didn't have to get beat up through the birthing process.

amen to that. My wife and I adopted a couple of little girls, and one of them has a birthday on November 30th. Not optimal, but like you said, sometimes there are different plans for us.
