Welcome Miss Emma Lynn!


Our Emma Lynn is with us now and she was so worth the wait! She's exhausted her poor mother but everyone is healthy and happy, but extremely tired! She was born at 4:42 this afternoon and weighed 7 lbs and 8 ozs and is 22" long. She has a headful of dark hair and the cutest schrunched up nose in the world. When I left her, she was sucking on her precious little fingers. I'm totally taken by her. Nick, her father, took some beautiful pictures and will be sending them to us. As soon as I get them, I'll post them.

In the meantime, I made this card over the weekend for my new girl. The image is from SU's "Welcome, Little One" set and I used my cuttlebug baby folder for the background and the designer paper is from Hot Off The Press. I thought it came out beautifully.

Now Grandmommy is off to finish catching up on her e-mail and then going to sleep. Man, what a day! Jennifer and Nick, thank you for making me blessed.
