« Part 7: Making Feet/ Starting Rails Part 8 of Grand Daughters Crib series Part 9: Addison is here!! Working my tail oof to finish this crib!! »

Well,,,,,,,,,,,I didn’t make it in time! Mommy2be just called and is headed to the hospital to deliver Addison Rose, my first Grand Daughter. (third grandchild)

I need to make a quick stop at work in the morning and make sure everybody is covered for the next two days,,,,,,then its a 6 hour trip to Dalllas. My guess is Addison will be waiting for me when I get there!

She’s a day late, kinda like her Grandpa!

I’ll be back with pictures and to finish up this crib. (as fast as possible)

She just couldn’t wait could she? :)

Congratulations on being a Grandpa for the third time. As long as everyone comes through this fine everything else pales in comparison. You will finish the crib in due course. If nothing else this is an excuse to personally deliver it (and, of course, arrange a visit with your new granddaughter when you deliver the crib).

Congratulations Les. I’ve been following the crib blog and I’m as anxious as anyone to see the thing finished.

Congratulations! We know the crib will be well worth the wait. We pray all is well with Mommy2be and Addison Rose. Have a safe and enjoyable trip.

We’re anxious to see pictures of Addison in the new crib.

Congratulations. I agree with Scott. I don’t think you could have timed it better. Now you “have” to go back down to deliver the crib. Oh, the rough life of a Grandpa.
