Little baby Oscar Alan Costa was born at 11:56 pm (Portland Time) on September 13, 2018.  He is a 23 inch long young man, weighing in at 7 pounds 15 ounces.  He was born at 37 weeks to a exhausted mom and dad, Teresa & Alex.

I got the text about this at 4:49 am my time, while I was walking into the library to start my work day.  I am filled with so many emotions right now, happiness and joy are the first two of course.  I know that even though my daughter had a difficult time with his birth (she's been in labor since Wed morning), she is overjoyed and knowing how happy and content she is right now makes me beyond happy.  She has been wanting a baby for many many years now - and she has done it....she has a son!

I cannot wait to see his little face, and hold him in my arms.  Smell his new skin, and feel his silky hair on my finger tips.

It is such an odd feeling not being there for such an occasion.  I will fly out in 12 days though, he'll already be two weeks old at that time.  Oh man, I am one happy mama and grandma.....
