Christmas Trees (yes I'm crazy)

I'm still recovering from Christmas, the birth of my granddaughter and too much work.

The family was over for Christmas.  The only casualty was my coffee table, but that's a story for another day.

This post is to show my Christmas tree addiction.  The pictures aren't great, my 3MP camera is limited I thinks.  As are my skills.

Finally my granddaughter arrived.
8:00 am Monday, December 13th, 2010
8 pounds, 15 ounces
22 inches long

A head of  dark hair

Daughter finally had the first twinges of labor after she arrived at the hospital for her scheduled c-section.
Too late.  Surgery it was.  She and baby are doing well.

She said it was over in no time.  Baby girl arrived hungry.  Sucking on the doc's fingers at delivery.  By 9:30 she had already eaten 10cc of formula and had done a little nursing.

I was able to see her around noon.
I promised pictures.  So here they are.  Oh yeah.  I don't take very good pictures.

Nurse just woke her up.

Not sure she wants to be up.

Look at that Hair!

Mommy will be thrilled with this pic of her.

I've not ever posted pics of the grandson, so here's a couple recent ones of the little ham.

He's not really cross-eyed, just wanted to look at the camera.

Grandma is Waiting. Patiently. Mostly.

And Waiting, waiting, waiting. 

Daughter had another appointment with her ob-gyn. 
New ultra sound. Baby about 7.5 lbs. 
In position. 

No further progression from last week. 

Due date 12/3. We're past that now. 

She set an appt. for c-sect on Monday 12/13. She'll be 10 days overdue by then. OB says that's long enough. 

She's hoping to go into labor and deliver before then. 


Waiting. For the phone to ring. 
Or for Monday. 

Sometime soon. There'll be a granddaughter.
