It seems I've waited a long time to bring you this news...but our new grandbaby is finally here!
arrived on September 29, 2008
at 3:35 pm
and weighed 7 lbs. 8 oz.
Tim & Heidi couldn't be happier...and we share in their joy!
I slipped off to the hospital as soon as I heard the grand news. Grandpa was busy harvesting corn, but Grammy had no time to wait for him!
After one quick stop for some pink roses for the new mommy...bearing a pink gift bag with the baby shawl for our new granddaughter...I arrived at the hospital to find them still in the delivery room.
Proud father...holds a little girl who is already looking up to him!
The baby is wrapped in a blanket made especially for Heidi by her grandmother (my mother-in-law) way back in March, 1994. Grandma was quite sure she would not be around to see Heidi have children...so she made the blanket in advance and it has waited in the cedar chest all these years. Grandma would be so thrilled with your little girl, Heidi!
Grandpa couldn't stay away for long...and soon we were all back at the hospital.
We are so blessed to be grandparents...and incredibly thankful to God for this special gift.
A new little hand for us to hold... her love is grand, precious as gold.
