Merrick Anthony Cushman was born in San Diego last night about 7:30 PST. We were texted pictures and announcement about 12:30 a.m. He is beautiful. 7 lbs 14 oz. 54 cm. Healthy baby boy. Nino is deployed as I have posted in the weekly thread before. His boat has been in port for a few weeks now with some repair issues. He was supposed to go back out to sea late last week. He was kept in port supposedly thru Tuesday but when I saw Mel was in labor yesterday a.m., I shot him a message on Facebook and he was still in port. He was able to participate in the birth via Facebook messenger and photos through the phone. I am so happy it turned out that way. If he was underwater (he's a submariner), he wouldn't have been able to get photos until they reached another port - unfortunately, he is going to be on a mission that involved no more ports until he made home port of San Diego late January. I am so thrilled for all of them. My youngest son was able to take her to the hospital and he will be caring for her two girls while she is in the hospital.

This is our first grandchild. I didn't think I was ready but seriously, this is pretty darn awesome. My mom wasnt 40 yet when she had her first. I'm 56 so I'm an "old" granny O0 ;D ;D ;D

I posted a photo in the weekly thread

Oh, how exciting! Congratulations! Sounds like it all went 'smoothly' and I hope you love being an "old granny". ;)

Now you have even more reason to buy more stuff and scrap even more too!
I hope everyone transitions well into life with a new baby...such a sweet time in life!

Laura, I am so happy that it all turned out like this.
I was telling hubby last night how sad I was that Nino wasn't going to see a photo of his baby until January.
I'm so pleased that he's seen and that everyone is doing well.

I look forward to lots of photos and updates now :)
What a wonderful reason to scrapbook.

Laura, this is WONDERFUL news! I was watching on FB, but had to go to bed before you announced it. What a sweet little guy and I'm so glad your son could be a part of the birth, that's very special!

Congratulations to all! Being a Grandma is the best thing ever!!!! You will love it no matter how old or young you are, the depth of emotions is different than being a parent(which you understand once you've become a Grandparent). Happy news, enjoy!

Congratulations, Grandmama!! Such wonderful news that your son was able to participate in his son's birth before heading "under" again, and that your other son was able to jump into uncle mode right away! Love that name, Merrick--so strong! Beaming with happiness for you, Laura!!

Congratulations, Laura. It sounds like things were meant to be. And I think my son is far away (he lives in PHX and I'm in DC.
