Just an Update

My Granddaughter arrived at 3:26 Tuesday morning, 8 lbs 11 oz., 20 ins. long, mother and baby are both fine. She immediately let out a loud cry as if to say "Move over - I have arrived"! Took lots of pictures and have not had a chance to go thru them all, and many did not turn out very good due to the lighting (think I need to start thinking about a new camera).
ETA: Pictures Removed
Look at those chubby cheeks -
This one taken approx. 13 hrs. after born - already wanting to raise her head up. Light auburn hair and dark blue/gray eyes.
I have always heard if the Mother has a lot of heartburn during pregnancy (and my daughter did), it means the baby will have a lot of hair - What do you think?
I kept 2 of my Grands (her other children) with me later at the hotel where I was staying.
We ate to much fast food, and I am sleep deprived, but we survived and with wonderful memories.
Hope everyone is having a great week!
Glenda

Now that is a full head of hair on that little baby girl! How precious... Congrats Grammy!! Get some sleep and who cares if you don't decorate for fall? You have better things to do to keep you occupied. Take care and get some rest, ok?
hugs, Sue

She is beautiful! I ran right over as soon as I saw you were around. I had the heartburn and the baby with tons of hair-so, I believe it!

I can't wait to see more pictures...now get some rest grandma!

Oh Glenda--I have been waiting and waiting...She is BEAUTIFUL!!!! And look at that hair--what a gorgeous color. My children were two years old before they had that much hair! She really is trying to lift her head! I am so happy you were with your daughter and that mother and baby are safe and sound. What a blessing! Get some rest and take more pictures! :)

CONGRATS Glenda, how exciting!!! She is beautiful and look how strong she is already. What gorgeous hair. She weighed only one ounce more than my daughter weighed. My daughter had a head full of hair too and I had horrible heartburn. I do believe that wife's tale. Have fun with that new bundle of joy. Hope mom is doing well.

Susan said...

I'm glad and I know that you are glad that she is finally here. She is just beautiful! I too had lots of heartburn with my Eldest and she was born with a head of black hair. Get some rest and get back to us when you can ;o)

Pat said...

Thanks for coming back by Glenda.

That link was what I got the first time I clicked it Tuesday. I believe hackers took the domain name. It was a freebie, but taking it caused me to practically go into a tailspin until I figured out what to do. I put a question over at the help board Tuesday or yesterday. Everthing is running all together....for some unknown reason!LOL I apparently am not allowed access to that link now...hmmmm surprise!
