Quincy Joan Suzanne Lyon

Baby Quincy is here! She is absolutely perfect, and Shelly, Chad and Grant are all doing well. I am sure you want to know the timeline and details, so here is the scoop on how it went down...

Shelly and Chad checked into CPMC around 8pm Mon 5/7, while Meena (Grandmama Joan) & Papa Ray stayed with Grant at his house. They started to induce Shelly around 9:45pm, and contractions started in earnest around midnight. The epidural was given (yeah!) around 2am Tue 5/8. Shelly called me at 5am to say I should get there before 7am, so I showered up and headed over to CPMC. I got there around 6:30am, and it was perfect timing, because about 6:45am, Shelly's water broke. Then it all happened like gangbusters! She dilated from 6cm to 10cm in only 20 minutes (thank God for the epidural!). Shelly started pushing just before 8am, and after a mere 35 minutes of pushing, Quincy Joan Suzanne Lyon entered the world at 8:28am. WOW!

Just like when I was there for Grant's birth, I am totally humbled and awed by my sister and the miracle of birth. Shelly is such a strong person, a wonderful mother, and I am so ecstatic for the birth of her daughter Quincy. I am getting all teary-eyed just writing this! Anywhoo, CONGRATS Lyon Family, and welcome Quincy -- you are soooo loved!

Plant Trees + Stop Junk Mail = Green Dimes

I just found this web site to deal with my huge junk mail problem: GreenDimes. For a dime a day they get your name off direct mailing lists and keep it off, and plant a tree for you every month. So if you want to stop your mailbox from overflowing, and save some trees, take a look at GreenDimes. Note: I have noticed a HUGE reduction in the amount of junk mail I have been getting!
