October 26

Tonight I am sharing some of my best pictures ever with you.
Monday morning my first grandchild was born!
Her name is Alaina Jo and I think she is just beautiful.






She weighed 7 lbs 8 ounces and was 20 inches long.
She has brown hair, long fingers and toes and cheeks that were made for kissing!
And if you couldn't tell - I'm in love!


"For you created my inmost being, you knit my together in my Mother's womb"
Psalm 139:13

Congratulations, Mari! That first is an unbelievable experience---so much wonder and awe. I had it with the other 5 too, but not like with the very first. You have just embarked on a glorious, blessed journey--grandma to a beautiful little girl.
Love the name and that hat! :>)

Her hat is perfect! And that has to be among the top three sweet little baby noses I've ever seen. You are blessed, and so is she to have such a sweet grandmommy! xo

Usually brand new babies have a nose on one side of their face and eyeballs at different levels and you have to say "OOooooo what a pretty baby!"

But this one is PERFECT.

Awww, lucky you!! We share a common bond now - I was blessed with my first grandchild a year ago in June, a little girl also. I hope your sweetie lives closer to you than mine does (Ohio)... I hate that I only get to see her several times a year!

(She's beautiful!!!)
