Introducing......

11 hours old...
...Our new granddaughter finally made her appearance in the wee hours of Monday morning, October 1. She was only a few days "late" for her due date of Sept. 27, but Mummy's OB was so sure she was going to arrive a few weeks early, the last few weeks of waiting seemed to go on forever... But, here she is. She was SO worth the wait!

Can you believe they didn't have any PINK hats left at the hospital??!!







Layelah Rose arrived at 2:40 a.m., very shortly after Mummy arrived at the hospital, and weighed in at a dainty 7 lbs. 1 oz. Her birth was quick and easy, so Mummy is doing well, recovery-wise. She looks exactly like her brother Noah did at birth- except for her darker hair, they could be twins. And speaking of hair, yes, she has lots! I think she'll need a hair appointment soon! lol








Big brother Noah is getting used to the idea of having a little sister. He wasn't terribly interested in her at first - was more interested in her swing! Typical boy! But after a few days, he's doing much better. Mummy and Daddy are doing a great job at involving him and making him feel important by giving him little jobs to do to help out. Today he was very proud to fasten her car seat buckles, and sit beside her in the van.  :)







 Yes, she's a little cutiepie! I think she's a  keeper! 

3.5 days old here and already smiling at Mummy!


Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! You know what WE are giving Thanks for today...

                                                                                  



Peace and Love,
Grammy Linda

Such a BIG MIRACLE in such a little girl...

Wow! What a beautiful little girl with a pretty name, too. Chuckled at Noah’s reaction, but I am sure that he will be a fine big brother. Someone said, wish I remembered who, that a sibling is the best gift parents can give a child. I believe it. Hope that your daughter’s family is not too far away for regular visits now that there are two grands to see.
