Seven days before the due date of June 28, Laurel posted these pictures.
With five days til Will and Laurel’s due date (this past Saturday), we like that they have gone on “old school” and don’t know the gender of their new child.
Our three “old school” kids were all over the board when they decided it was showtime. Born August 5, Molly was three days early. Robyn was thirteen days late on September 7 and actually born on Labor Day. Will was three days late on October 12. Using higher mathematics by squaring the hypotenuse and dividing by the tangent, I came up with the calculation that their baby will come on our 46th anniversary – July 1.
Somehow my math didn’t quite an add up! My bad.
For later that Saturday afternoon, we get a text that Laurel’s water has broken. Below, the new parents are ready and waiting at the hospital.
Throughout the night the baby wasn’t quite ready to make an appearance. After a long night that rolled into Sunday morning, Brooks Archer Rothermel came into this world on June 24, 2018 at 8# 2 oz, 20.5″. (Archer is my mother’s maiden name and my middle name.)
We are top of the world!
