Just a quick post to share the news. My son and daughter-in-law have a beautiful baby girl. She was born late last night at 12:38 am.
Isn’t she just gorgeous? Parents and baby are doing wonderfully. Baby Girl weighs in at 8 pounds and 4 ounces and is a very long 21 1/2 inches. She has such kissable cheeks! The kids and I FaceTimed this afternoon which was such a treat. Technology is going to make living across the country from this little girl almost bearable.
The whole birthing process is nothing if not exhausting. This girl is tuckered out. I think her parents probably look much like this as well. It is an amazing thing to watch your baby become a father. Indescribably awesome. These two will be fantastic parents. Such a sweet family of three (plus the dog and two cats!) I am reveling in this little miracle. <3
Thank you! 🙂
How exciting! She is absolutely adorable 🙂 Congratulations to all of you!
I think she is gorgeous. Poor girl is about 22 hours old and they have sent me a billion pictures. Thank goodness for technology. I was thinking about when I had my first baby (her father) in 1985 and we took pictures and had to wait for them to be developed so I could send them to people. That seems just archaic now!
Hello Bernie, I love your blog! I just wanted to know what the new baby girl’s name is. She is so cute!
Thank you Madison. I don’t use her name on the blog to respect her privacy. ❤️☺️. She is such a sweetheart.
She is a cutie. We are really blessed to enjoy technology today
Still, sometimes I facetime Sarah even though she is 9 miles up the road 😀
Nine Miles Up the Road!! What I wouldn’t give for that. Maybe someday we will at least live on the same side of the country. Hope so.
Thanks a bunch Rosemary! By the way, here is a cute story. When my son (the new daddy) was two years old, I was expecting child number two. Son number one wanted very much for us to name the new baby Rosemary. When he was born and we explained he was a boy and thus we couldn’t name him Rosemary, there were tears. He just cried and cried. He really wanted a sister named Rosemary. 🙂
Congratulations! I agree that FaceTime and technology makes family at a distance feel so much closer. <3
Oh my gosh, yes. It is just so helpful. Facetime and GoogleShare — We use them all the time. There is such a sweet album of photos on GoogleShare already for this baby girl. <3
Congratulations Grandma. She’s so beautiful! You must be over the moon.
I am – it is wonderful. But I am so tired. We were up somewhat late waiting for baby to arrive and then when she did, I was so excited that I couldn’t sleep! So fun. 🙂
When a grandmother is created, the world changes! We will move mountains for our grandchildren!
Loved the Rosemary story!
Congrats grandma-she is beautiful!
Congratulations to you Grammy!! I love the Rosemary story too. Apparently, he has lost his fondness for the name?
Oh, my! I can’t help it, I have tears! She’s absolutely perfect! Congratulations to everyone! XO
Awwwwwww…she’s gorgeous Bernie! I didn’t understand the big deal about grandkids until we had one. Big, big congrats!!!! And virtual hugs all around!!!
Congratulations! She is beautiful. Becoming a grandmother is such a blessing!
It is a blessing. So special to see your child become a parent. ❤
She’s beautiful! Congratulations!!!
Happy Birthday little one!
Congratulations Grandma! She is just beautiful and you are so right, those cheeks are just perfect for kissing! Facebook also helps keep pictures going non-stop! Have a wonderful day basking in almost overwhelming love and delight!
Thanks Brenda. I spent virtually the entire day looking at pictures of her and watching her on the iPad. It was a great day!
Congratulations, Bernie, to you as well as your son and daughter-in-law! She’s beautiful!
So beautiful! Congratulations!
Thank you Paige.❤
Congratulations Bernie! She is adorable. It’s difficult to live so far from such sweetness – hopefully FaceTime or Skype can help you get your baby fix! 🙂
Thank you Beth. I am going out for a week in April, which I am so looking forward to. But for the most part, it will be FaceTime for getting my baby fix. ❤?❤
Precious peep! Congrats to all.
Oh Bernie I am so, so happy for you and your whole family. I can’t imagine all the emails and texts that must be flying! She really IS beautiful! And a very nice size! And yes those cheeks – awwww.
