Sandy snuggling Gracie in early labor

Sandy has to get her snuggle time in as well. We really are not sure if Sandy is snuggling Mary or Gracie.

It's 5:37AM. Do you know where your OB-GYN is?

You can't tell from the picture, but the hospital was incredibly busy that morning. So Busy, Mary had to wait in the hallway for a little while before being taken to a room.


It was a FROSTY California March morning. (See the frost on the roof tiles?)
