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.





    Rarely do you see a pretty newborn, but she fits the bill. So so cute. And look at all that hair!

    Congratulations to you and your daughter. What a blessing :)

  2. Roxane, thank you! And I think she's beautiful too. Of course, I'm prejudiced.

  3. congratulations on a beautiful new grandbaby!! And thanks for your kind words of support on my blog. I so very much appreciate it! xoxo to you and yours!

  4. Kathy, thank you for stopping by! And for your good wishes.

    I found your post by way of Molly C. And I agree with your opinion.

  5. She is beautiful!

    I love the hair.


    Give your daughter a hug for me.

    Oh my god, that baby is just perfect.


  6. Kris, thank you!

    That hair is as soft as kitten fur. And she is beautiful. And I held her twice. And swooned the whole time.
    And have been gramma smug for 3 days now. And making people look at pictures. Cause grammas have that privilege.

  7. Congratulations on your grandbaby! And what a good sized little girl!

  8. Liz, thank you!
    Yep, she's almost a toddler. Her brother was big too.

    And I'm passing all the Congrats along to my daughter.

  9. Oh my - what a beauty! Look at that hair! That face!


    Absolute perfection.

  10. Cheryl, Thank You for stopping by. I'm a shameless gramma. She is so adorable!

  11. A belated congratulations, Renee!!!
    She is just beautiful.
    I hope that everyone is doing well. :)

  12. Nichole, thank you! Everyone is well. I find myself missing the toddler grandson. I don't get my fix since his mom is on leave from work right now.

  13. Congratulations!

    How I'd love to hold a little pumpkin like this in my arms.

    Lucky lucky gramma!

    And what a blessed way to start the New Year!

  14. Alexandra, thank you! I'm looking forward to getting to know her and spending time with the grandson. He is growing so fast!
