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.
Welcome to the world, baby Anna!
Born after dawn this morning, weighing 8 lb 11 oz, 22 inches long.
Both parents are exhausted, but everyone is doing well. I got to hear her sweet little baby cries over the phone earlier, and was all verklempt. In fact, I’ve had something in my eye off and on all day.
My heart is full.
MONDAY: Edit to add the pic below. Testing to see how much adorable one blog post can contain. My daughter tells me Anna has beautiful blue eyes and she does, in fact, open them occasionally.
