June 7th,Little did we know that the most important event of our entire vacation would take place, not in Europe, not even while we were awake, but in a hospital in San Jose. Phil and Mia's baby wasn't due until June 17th so we figured we would have plenty of time to return to the US and be ready to be in San Jose when the baby was born. Not to happen. Massimo Bastien Luedtke decided that he wanted to come early, 10 days early. The fact that we were in Europe was of no consequence to him.
Snug as a bug in a rug!
|Not fair! Christy gets to hold Massimo before we do.|
|A tired but very content Mama Mia.|
Philip reports that all is well. He is still floating about two feet off the floor. He may come down to earth sometime in the next few months.
