It’s another girl!

Welcome to the world, baby Emily!

My new granddaughter was born just before midnight yesterday, weighing 8 lb 7 oz.

Mom and baby (and dad) are all doing well. Emily reportedly has blue eyes and “quite a lot” of brown hair, but I don’t have a pic of that yet.

I’ve been told that her two-year-old big sister is excited to meet her. So am I.

My eyes have been leaking happiness at random moments all day.

  4. That’s just how it feels, too much to contain. Thanks, CC!

    Thank you for sharing this joy with all of us! I hope your DD doesn’t still suspect us of trying to harvest your kidneys. I’m very happy for you all. Your kidneys are safe.

    (Okay, don’t ask me* about other people’s organs. No promises there.)

  6. LOL! I don’t think my kids were ever worried about anyone wanting my organs (that was TinW). They just figured I must have invented all of you, because why would anyone ever want to talk to *their mother.*

    And thanks, Merry. We’re all very happy about the new baby too. ❤️
