She's here!

Much to everyone's surprise, the newest addition to our family arrived last night. My new granddaughter was born at 10:30-ish, a full two weeks early. She weighs 6 lbs. 14 oz. and is 19 inches long and I'm leaving in a couple of hours to go meet her.

Guess who won't be blogging tomorrow?

I'm only staying one night. The new little family will be coming home tomorrow and they want to spend their first few days on their own. I'm the closest grandparental unit – a four-hour drive – so I'm taking advantage of close proximity to see them while they're still in the hospital.

And damn dial-up internet connections anyway! I've been waiting and waiting for her picture to download into my e-mail inbox and it keeps timing out. Grrrrrrrr. Oh, well. I'll be seeing her this afternoon! Today! Heh.

I thought I had two more weeks to finish her "welcome-to-the-world" gift, which is about two-thirds of the way done. Oh, well ... she surely doesn't need a blanket in July in North Carolina. I'm pretty sure she has everything she needs for a comfortable start.

So ... blog break tomorrow!

Yeah.....a healthy baby and momma! Congratulations. Grandma's loving arms wrapped around her will feel WAY better than the most beautiful blanket. You go Grandma!
