Emma Isobel has arrived!!!

Posted on March 16, 2012 at 2:35pm 15 Comments

My daughter, Caroline gave me my first grandchild on Sunday Mar 11th, her due date!! Emma Isobel weighed in at 6lb 14oz and 21"!!! She made her grand entrance in the same way her mother did-FAST!! I was at the hospital only an hour before Caroline arrived and she was at the hospital about 1 and half hrs!!!!

Both Caroline and John (SIL) are doing well and baby Emma has her days and nights switched but is doing great otherwise!!!!!!

Here is a picture of Emma her first night…

I saw a post on my daughters FB page just a little while ago and just had to laugh at her announcement:

My DH and I just got home from Ocean City,NJ. My daughter and I did the MS City to Shore ride! We did the whole 75 miles today! My knees are a little sore and so is my butt!!! Of course my daughter said she wants to the ride next year!! It was a lot of fun and for a really good cause!!
I think I am going to go and lay down now!

Thanks, Nicola!  I'm excited to be joining the "Grandma Club," too!  (I'm borrowing your phrase.)  Glad to hear you are enjoying baby Emma.  They are so sweet and fun, aren't they?

Going to be spoiled!!!!!  He already is!!!  Rotten!!!! He is a sweetie pie, taking care of him is like taking care of a baby, he does require a lot of attention right now. No sleeping in right now, he is up with the morning light.  Thanks for your comment!!

Thank you, Nicola--it is really good to have the Tetris quilt finished and to have it turn out so well.  I learned so much from making it--can't wait to see DD's boyfriend's face when he sees it.

Thank you, Nicola--i'm glad you like the Tetris quilt--it's proving to be a lot of fun.  I'm hoping to finish and quilt it for DD's boyfriend's college graduation in May--unlikely, but at least it gives me a goal to work toward!

Hi Nicola, I will be careful painting... as I most likely will get my hubby to do it. Yet I love to paint. As for my mom , well she has been walking now for two weeks. She is something. 80 years old and she is walking everywhere. I never thought she would bounce back as she has. She is thrilled to have her life back again. My dad tells me she is cleaning... always walking. I am glad she finally is back to normal. Thanks for your post... and I happy to hear from you too. Its been so long since I talked with others. Its been wonderful hearing from everyone. Chat soon... Hugs Morgan
