Welcome, wee Tavie

A first picture of our new granddaughter, Octavia Mary McCambridge - called 'Tavie'. 7 lbs 4 oz, 20 inches long. This was taken Oct 5, 2008 just a few minutes after her birth. She was very alert, responding to sound, looking intently at faces that spoke to her, and clearly trying to figure things out. I was very grateful to be able to spend a couple of hours with her right after she was born. My own babies were whisked away from me and not returned until hours later. The picture was taken with my phone, so it's not the greatest quality but it captures that smooshed face newborn-ness and the intensity of her alertness.

I too - daughter of COG, Tavies Mom was glad you were there. One less thing on my mid as I was in the horrid recovery area. John could be with me, and Gma was with her.
