    In case you haven’t figured it out yet . . . Caleb Daniel is #7 in the Ewing clan.  He arrived on Christmas Day.  I woke my Mom up at about 2:30 a.m. and asked her if she wanted to open a Christmas present from Dan.  Caleb wasn’t actually born until 4:50 p.m. (Dan never liked opening Christmas presents that early in the morning anyway), which gave us plenty of time to open Christmas presents with the rest of the kids and help get them some lunch before deserting Grandpa and going to hide out at the midwife’s.  We got home in time to introduce the siblings to each other before bedtime.  They all were excited about the baby, even Payden, and were all asking about him as soon as they got up in the morning.

    Labor was not nice and I did not do well unlike most of my other labor’s.  I think that subconsciously I was still kind of waiting for Dan to show up and therefore was sort of fighting with my body as to whether or not we really wanted to do this or not.  We had about three hours of serious labor including about one hour of intense labor.  It would not have been pretty if Dan had showed up in the middle.  I was seriously ready to slaughter him.  (Guess that was already taken care of  ={ for me.)

    Anyway, it’s over and I am glad.  Now I guess we can move on with the next phase of my life.

  • Liisa, He is a cutey and sure looks like another Royer grandbaby. Can’t wait to hug him (you too). Mrs. Knisely is bringing lunch tomorrow and I will do Sunday. Mrs. Hoffman Monday and I’ll put a sheet out at church for others. Any favorite foods the kids like????????? I know the old “hamburger” Grandpa makes:) Love you. And I can’t wait to hold him:)

  • Congratulations, Liisa!

    As the Father watched over His Son so many years ago, He continues to watch over your new son. And all your other children. And you.

    God, Who has been blessing you openly and secretly, continue to do so beyond measure.

  • Congratulations Liisa and your children.
    What wonderful news. He’s beautiful and I love his name.
    Praying for you often and will pray that you will rest now that your little bundle is here.
    May God bless you and your seven sweet children richly in the New Year.
