Congratulations to Savoeun and Saron on the birth of their baby girl! Soriya Lily Chan was born at St. Joseph’s hospital on June 14, 2005 weighing in at 6lb 4oz.
I received the call early Tuesday morning. I thought it was a call from work so I didn’t bother picking up my cell phone and tried to go back to sleep. And then my house phone started to ring. I was thinking, “man, work must really need me to go in right now.”
But turns out, it was Voeun calling to share the good news. I wanted to go visit them and asked where they were. Voeun said they’re in room B325. When I got to St. Joe’s, there was no B325. Figures, he’s always been bad with directions. Luckily I saw a sign that said 321-326 so i figured he meant the D wing not the B wing.
When I got to the room, Voeun’s mom and Saron were there, and some other lady and her family who recently had a baby too, but I wasn’t there to visit them, so bah…
What I found surprising was that the baby was very quiet. I didn’t hear her cry the whole time I was there. And when I went to hold her in my arms, she stuck out her tongue at me.. silly, juss like her dad.
