I spoke with Tracy on February 5th and she advised me that she was feeling great so she was going to work one more week and then take maternity leave. She called her job and they were happy to know Tracy would work one more week. Then a few hours later Tracy called and said she thought she was in labor. I remember saying, “No you’re not!” as I thought for sure she was pulling my leg. We had just spoken hours earlier and there were no signs of labor or indication that it was on the horizon. Then I realized she was serious. So I called the parents about 9:00pm and they were having dinner. The mom-to-be said her husband told everyone that they would need to have an early dinner because he had a feeling his son would be born that night. My first thought was 9:00pm was an early dinner? And then I remembered my dinners in Europe and knew that it was early for them. I’m sure this new Dad will tell the story of how he knew his son would be born to everyone who will listen. It took a little longer than we expected, but finally *Shawn arrived in the morning of February 6.
