If the visit was planned four months in advance, and the baby was a few days old when this was written, the plans can't have taken into account when the baby was born. So it was either "I'll come x days after the baby is born" or "I'll come on $specific_date, regardless of how soon after the birth that is." Either way, it sounds as though a bit more pre-planning would have helped, even if it was "I want to see the baby as soon as possible, so I'm going to make motel reservations near your house. Is there anywhere I should avoid?"
