Hi family and friends,
I am so happy to post the news this morning that we spent the evening last night with Ditte and Jeremy at the Pleasant Valley Hospital in Camarillo, where Ditte labored and delivered their new little son, Scott (Scotty) Johannes Wager!
I know Ditte and Jeremy will want to tell you more about it, but all went so well. Ditte uses the Lamaze method of relaxing and breathing to go through labor and it worked well for her once again. She was ready to push at about 11:15....had one push and out came his head, another push and out came his shoulders and body. I had one of the best views of my new grandson as I was holding up one of her legs and Jeremy the other.
The Labor and Delivery Room she was in became kind of party, but she invited us to be there....Ditte and Jeremy, myself, then Nana Nancy Wager, then Mette and Tyson came, then Haans and Else came. Haans video taped the birth for them as they had asked. With the doctor and nurses, it was a full room. Like I said...it was a birthday party for Scotty!
Scott Johannes Wager was born at 11:17 pm at Pleasant Valley Hospital and weighed in at 9 lbs. 15 oz . Two ounces bigger than his big brother, Wyatt!
As I came home to share the pictures and videos with John (he stayed home with Hans and Cozette, Atalie and Wyatt), we hugged each other...I said, "congratulations gramps" and he said..."our 11th grandchild! " It never ceases to be a miracle and a wonderful event to see a birth...it is just amazing that one moment they aren't there and the next, we have a new member of our family! We feel so very, very blessed that all is well with Ditte and the baby.
This morning we woke up the kids to get ready for school and I told them if they got ready quickly I would show them the pictures and videos on the computer of their new baby brother and Hans' new nephew. They were so excited! We had breakfast and gramps took them to school (Hans and Cozette and Atalie and Kirsten's two girls, Audrey and Addie all go to the same school.)
Wyatt is here with me today and I look forward to visiting Ditte and Jeremy and Scotty at the hospital a little later.
Welcome to our family, Scotty!
