IT'S A BOY!! Emily's due date was December 31.

At 5:30 AM on January 1 -- my phone rang and Elliott said, "It's time, Mom."

By 6:00, I was at their house and they were on their way to the hospital.

I must have dozed off, because two hours later, this little voice woke me up -- it was Lilly saying "it's morning time!"

Mother and son are both doing fine.

Warren John Farro was born at 12:15 PM and he weighed 9 lb. 1 oz.

He is officially the first child born in 2013 in Clinton County, Iowa. Maybe that's good for a car. Or a box of disposable diapers...??

Lilly is here until the baby comes home...so I will be officially OUT OF COMMISSION...and enjoying every blessed moment...


  1. Congratulations on your new grandson! Wishing many blessings for all of you!

  2. CONGRATULATIONS, Rita, to you and your family! Have a wonderful, wonderful time enjoying this blessed moment! Such excitement! I wonder what lovely zebra outfits you are going to create for Warren! :)
