Sweet Little Rose Lynn

My flight from Seattle to Milwaukee was scheduled for Friday July 1st at 11:59 PM. 
My plan was to be in Wisconsin for or soon after the birth of our 11th grandchild. 
I received a call from Julie on July 1st at around 6 PM Seattle time and she said that she was in the beginning of labor and was headed for the hospital. 
I landed in Milwaukee at about 5:40 AM Wisconsin time and had a message waiting on my phone when I turned it on. 
Rose Lynn, 7 pounds 8 ounces, 18 1/4 inches long. was born at about 3:15 AM July 2nd, Wisconsin time. 
Did I confuse you yet?  
I am still unsure of the time but I am sure that Rose Lynn and family are all doing great.
 (Rose doesn't know it yet but she will share a birthday with her great aunt Nancy) 
Julie's friend Amy picked me up at the airport and took me straight to the hospital to see little Rose and her mom and dad.

First peek at their new little sister.

Everyone wants her to open her eyes, she seems content to keep them closed.

I will have to take a picture of little Rose with her Mom and Dad soon.
It is now 10 PM Wisconsin time and I have no idea how much sleep I have had in the last couple of days.  A cup of tea and a cozy bed sounds good right now.
