Our Precious Baby Granddaughter Has Arrived

I just got back from a very long day at the hospital, but all ended well. Our darling granddaughter is born, and she is just beautiful. 8 lbs 1 oz, 21" long and lots of dark hair, also extraordinarily long eyelashes! I appreciate any prayers that were offered on her behalf, because as it turns out, the cord was wrapped three times around her neck. But God is gracious and both baby and Mom, and my son the Papa, are doing quite well.

Any of you that are friends on Facebook can see a pic and name. I plan be in Indiana 2 more weeks, Lord willing, to hold our baby girl and spoil her parents. The baby is so, so sweet and calm. We are so blessed to have her here. Praise God, the creator of babies. 7/7/10

Oooh, I had to go over and take a peek. She's precious, all the more when you think about the cord round her neck. Congratulations to the parents :-)

Congratulations! So wonderful. I saw the pics and she is just perfect.
Doctors and mid wives are amazing... unsung heroes, delivering these babies, averting danger! My daughter had a rather difficult birth and I know how worrying it can be. Hugs to everyone!

Congratulations to the happy parents and you too. Sounds like she had a rather traumatic entry into this world, but she's here now, safe and loved. God's blessings upon you and your family.

Congratulations on the new grandbaby, but BOOOOOO!!! to the fact that her arrival caused you to stop blogging for over a month now.

I mean, grandchildren are magnificent, but really! 8)
